In Their Words: "Matt [my husband] and I spend a lot of time on the road, and sometimes we won't realize we're near some famously beautiful place 'til everybody at the show's asking if we're gonna check it out. We wrote this song last Fall when we found ourselves with a few hours to spare on the shore of Lake Tahoe. I wrote the first verse while Matt was taking a nap. He woke up and started playing that guitar part and, all the sudden, I was singing the chorus like the whole thing had already been written. It's really fun and rare when it happens that easy." -- Kelley McRae
