Lyrical meaning and composition[edit]

The song's lyrics revolve around the concept of monogamy and staying faithful in a relationship. Upon being asked about the inspiration behind the song, Grammer stated, "The song’s about staying honest and being like, 'Yes, you are smoking hot, but I got a lady at home who is incredible. It’s worth staying truthful.'"[3]

"Honey, I'm Good." is written in the key of A major with a tempo of 122 beats per minute. The song is performed in cut (2

It was scheduled to impact hot adult contemporary radio on January 19, 2015,[5] but the single's add date was later pushed back to February 2, 2015, to coincide with its contemporary hit radio release.[6][7][8] The song was made available to stream on Spotify in the UK on May 31, 2015, and was released to digital retailers there on July 13, 2015.[9] "Honey, I'm Good." was re-recorded with guest vocals by American country group Eli Young Band and digitally released on July 14, 2015. This version impacted country radio on July 27, 2015.[2]

Reception[edit]

In an article in the New York Post, Chelsea Samelson writes: "It's got that down-to-earth realism, and he's not boasting or taking some holier-than-thou stance. In fact, he sings that 'better men than me have failed, drinking from that unholy grail.'"[10]

Music video[edit]

In November 2014, a lyric video was released that incorporated vintage comics (two out-of-print titles: Space Detective and Out of This World) for a comedic video directed by Jason Merrin.[11][12]

In December 2014, the official music video was released, featuring a montage of 100 real-life couples (who've been together from a few months to 70 years),[13] including Grammer and his wife Aijia Grammer.[14]

Covers[edit]

The song was covered by Irish country artist Ritchie Remo in August 2015. The hit also appears on his album Hit The Diff.[15] Remo also released a music video directed by Eddie Creaney, Shane Doyle and Philip Magowan.[16] It was also covered by American a cappella country group Home Free on their 2015 album Country Evolution, with a music video of the song released in April of the same year.[17]
