Critical receptionEdit

Kevin John Coyne, of Country Universe, gave the song a "C" rating, stating that the song could put Matchbox Twenty fans to sleep. He also said that the duo could have come up with something worthy of their time and effort.[1]

Music videoEdit

The song was made into a music video, which premiered on Country Music Television on July 2, 2010.[2] The video was directed by Kristin Barlowe. In the video, the duo perform in the middle of woods, while in the backdrop are two children playing. As the video progresses, special effects are used to simulate the children, as well as Steel Magnolia, turning into angels.
