It was released in February 1997 as the third single from his album What I Do the Best. It peaked at #6 in the United States, and #5 in Canada.

Larry Flick, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, calling it "a classic-sounding country weeper, dripping in mournful steel guitar." He states that the "heart-tugging lyric is accentuated by Csaba Petocz's skilled production." He goes on to say that Montgomery's tone is "quite vulnerable, and it works well on this heartbreak ballad."
The music video was directed by Lou Chanatry.
