In Their Words: "My brother passed away in a car accident when he was 19. My family packed up the car the day after his funeral and drove out West. We had no plans other than making it out to California and driving up the coast. It was really therapeutic. When I got back to Nashville that summer, I sat down with my guitar and this song was the first thing that came out. When I play this song live, people are surprised by the line 'daddy's still mad; he wants to kick God's ass.' But I think it's a very real emotion to experience after losing someone. I've been playing this song live for four years now, and it's still not uncommon for me to tear up while performing. It tends to bring out the same reaction in a lot of my audiences. I frequently have people come up to me after the show, misty-eyed, saying they lost a brother, father, friend. It instantly bonds us together, and I hope it honors the memory of their loved one as it honors the memory of my brother each time I play it. For that reason, this song will always be a special one for me." — Hailey Whitters
