  • Gill co-wrote the song with his wife Amy Grant and her touring guitarist Will Owsley. Said Gill: "A whole lot of that melody came from Will - those chord changes. The changes are very Beatles-esque. Amy came and helped us finish the song. Will played and sang on it."
  • Tragically, Owsley committed suicide in April 2010 at the age of 44. Gill said of his fallen colleague: "This is another song that I wrote with Will Owsley. Will was one of the most musical guys that I had ever known. It just devastated me that he took his life last year. I was talking to my friend Joe Glaser, who repairs guitars in town. We both tried to help Will through his struggles. We were talking the other day and said, "Man, I wish he could have hung on. He had a couple of songs on this record and he might have been helped."
