  • Lyrics
  • This island-tinged track evokes laid-back Caribbean vibes. Zac Brown admitted to Tonedeaf.com: "The kind of reggae-type stuff is kind of polarizing. Some people either love it or hate it, but to me, Bob Marley's my favorite artist of all time, and if you can capture that kind of feeling that's in some of those songs."

    He added: "It was a lot of fun to put the pieces of this song together, and John Hopkins, my bass player, came up with some amazing vocal parts for the kind of break down where we're singing the a cappella part, and it just came together really well."
