Album: You Get What You Give (2010)
Charted: 35

Songfacts®:

  • This upbeat single from Zac Brown Band's second major-label album, You Get What You Give, was written by frontman Zac Brown, his songwriting partner Wyatt Durrette and Texas born/Atlanta based Southern Soul Singer-Songwriter Nic Cowan. It was released as the fourth single from the LP to country radio in August 2011.
  • Lyrically the song was inspired by a girl who Durrette was attracted to but wasn't available. They subsequently got together and at the time it was released as a single were dating. The bridge is part of a separate song that Cowan had written, which Brown felt fitted well.
  • The video was filmed during a live show at Colorado's Red Rocks Ampitheatre. Brown told The Boot about the clip: "It's important that people come see our show, because we are performers. We wanted people to see that. We filmed last year at Red Rocks and got a helicopter and actually flew over and got some amazing footage and put all that beautiful stuff together. We had two days of time-lapse [photography]. The majesty of that place and the energy of our live show and the crowd is amazing. It's my favorite video we've made so far."
  • The song was Zac Brown Band's seventh consecutive #1 Country single, with eight of their past nine releases reaching the top spot. The only one to miss out was "Whatever It Is," which peaked at #2.
