It was written by country scribes Jill Colucci and Stewart Harris, who previously collaborated on the Travis Tritt hit "I'm Gonna Be Somebody," along with The Pointer Sisters' "Dare Me
" songwriter Sam Lorber.
Colucci (who was also the voice of the America's Funniest Home Videos
theme song, "The Funny Things You Do," in the '90s) was walking down the halls of EMI Music when she ran into producer Tony Brown. He told Colucci he was looking for songs for Wynonna, who was newly solo from The Judds and planning her debut album, and asked if she had any. She came up with this tune, and it became one of the signature songs of Wynonna's solo career.
