Co-written by Beddingfield, the song pays tribute to his musical hero, country living legend George Jones.
The music video features Eric Lee Beddingfield dressed in a suit, singing in an empty church, as well as singing on his tour bus, as he is strumming his guitar; moreover, it shows archive footage of George Jones from the Grand Ole Opry, as well as accepting his trophy for the 1981 Country Music Association (CMA) award for “Male Vocalist of the Year.”
Towards the end of the video, George Jones, who is also known as “The Possum,” makes a cameo himself, and sings his verse as he pays homage to deceased country music legends such as Hank Williams, Lefty Frizell and Waylon Jennings.
