"Never Ending Song of Love" was recorded a duet with fellow Pikeville, Kentucky native Dwight Yoakam. The original version of “Never Ending Song of Love” was recorded by Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett as a rock/soul song (It was Billboard's #67 top 100 pop single of 1971). It is the second time that they have recorded together. They had previously recorded "Send a Message to My Heart" on Yoakam's album If There Was a Way, released in 1992.

The album's title song was recorded by Loveless in memory of Waylon Jennings. It was written by record producer-songwriter Allen Reynolds and was originally recorded in 1975 by both Jennings (on his album Dreaming My Dreams) and Crystal Gayle (on her album Somebody Loves You) when Reynolds was Gayle's record producer. "When I Reach the Place I'm Going" This track was originally recorded by Wynonna Judd on her debut album.
