Williams wrote the song with his regular producer Jonathan Smith and with Nashville songwriter Casey Beathard (Kenny Chesney's "The Boys of Fall
," Eric Church's "Like Jesus Does
"). As soon as they'd completed the tune the singer knew he wanted to see if Dolly Parton would consider duetting with him on it. Williams' team sent the demo to Parton's manager, who played it to Dolly. She loved it, and as she was looking to work on some faith-based material, she agreed to jump on the track.
