In Their Words: “This song served as a reminder to myself to appreciate my wife and how patient and loving she is. It was written during the pandemic when everything seemed in crisis. She was working from home, but I couldn’t really work at all. All that time together isn’t always the best thing for a couple. However, she handled it with a cool head and really helped me get through my anxiety at the time. We filmed this video at a 100-plus-year-old chapel that my friend Evan Tate had moved onto his property. He put a lot of hard work into fixing it up, and it’s a very special place. The song is about redemption and focusing on the good things in your life during tough times. I thought the idea of shooting it in this chapel made perfect sense. It’s really beautiful.” — Matt Hillyer
