Content[edit]

The song is about a man who feels conflict over a relationship,[4] saying that it was "all alright, now it's all wrong". Band members Zac Brown, Jimmy De Martini, and John Driskell Hopkins wrote the song with Wyatt Durrette, who has written several other songs for the Zac Brown Band, and Eric Church. A. J. Ghent plays an electric guitar solo.[5]

Commercial reception[edit]

As of July 30, 2014 the song has been sold 58,000 times.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

Alanna Conaway of Roughstock gave the single a positive review, stating that it is likely to add another huge hit to the band's 10 number one hits and it is one of the best singles of 2014.[7] Jon Freeman of Country Weekly rated it "B+", praising the Southern rock influences of the production and the "impressionistic metaphors" of the lyric, but adding that "It also comes with a challenging, rangy melody that exposes some of the typically solid Zac's weaknesses as a vocalist. But the band's musicianship is as impressive as ever".[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Cole Cassell and premiered in July 2014.[8]
