Wayne released the song in October of 2008, as the second single from his Do You Believe Me Now album. The single peaked at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in April of 2009 and remained on the charts for a total of 28 weeks. Below, Wayne explains that personal connection he has to the Top 20 hit.
Lyrically, this is a song that reminds me of a girlfriend I had once.
She simply wanted to go her own way, and I felt like saying, 'You know, I care about you enough that I'm willing to let go and let you sail away and do your thing. You won't be coming back, but I love you enough to let you go.'
