“Rounding out this album with a 3rd #1 is something I am so proud of,” Owen shared with Billboard. “I chose Big Loud Records as my partner because I know what they are capable of. I knew they could take me and my music to another level. Working with the BLR team and especially Joey Moi is a huge advantage and I’m very thankful for them.”
Owen continues, “I am also so proud of the songwriters on this song. Neil Medley, Joey Hyde, and Benjy Davis… It’s their first #1 song as writers. These moments are so special and I’m fortunate to be a small part of it. Finally, I’m thankful for country radio for supporting this song, and my career for all these years. We have great champions out there at radio and this is a testament to that. I love country music. I’m living a dream.”
“A sweetly romantic expression from a guy who still has plenty to give” (MusicRow), the song’s music video premiered exclusively at People.com. Sending an inspiring message about love, the video stars Owen’s now fiancé, his two daughters (Pearl and Paris) and a montage of fan-submitted videos celebrating love for the people and special moments we have with them in life.
