According to Ronnie Dunn, “It’s [about the] simple things, really. The more you learn, the more you figure out… the more you realize the lessons you learned growing up, the things you feel – that is what really matters. It’s easy to miss that, chasing after a career or whatever – and you do have to work hard in this world, there’s no way around it – but when that gets out of balance with your family, with your friends, with the things that matter… well, that’s what this song is about.[1]
