We wanted to keep the production simple, and Adam (Wood) and Randy Montana absolutely nailed it. The music supports the lyrics, the meaning, and the feel of the song. It builds on emotion and really hits you hard. I’m so proud of this one and so lucky to have such talent involved.”

Miranda says when it came to the bridge, they all wrote their own versions and ended up using lines from each persons bridge, so they ended up co-writing that part without even meaning to. They were all different, but the lines they took out of each bridge all fit together.
