  • This song finds Uncle Kracker duetting with Sonia Leigh, a singer-songwriter on Zac Brown Band's Southern Ground Records label. Kracker was eager to recruit the songstress for Midnight Special after touring with her. He told Billboard magazine: "I toured with her for a few months, and by the end of it, I told her 'I need to get you on this record,' and we decided that would be the song."
