āSo itās very tied into the documentary. When we wrote it, we didnāt know it was going to be, but the actual docuseries, documentary actually kind of made the song be born because Luke Laird and Josh Osborne were on the road with me, I guess three years ago and (Michael) Monaco was going through some editing of the documentary. And Luke and Josh were watching it and they were educating themselves on my past. And so we sat down and started working on a song. I had the idea of gosh, has anybody ever written something about losing someoneā¦and since my brother passed, thereās been all these life-changing songs that I knew my brother would have loved, wouldāve loved every second of. So, that was the main thing and we wrote it with that. And so as it really started working in conjunction with the documentary, we decided to really feature the song and loved how it turned out. Itās just such a special song that I think people can relate to because thereās somebody that lost somebody that their connection was an Atlanta Braves game and when the Braves hit a homeroom, theyāre like I wish my brother were here to watch that homerun. Well, with me, Iām like, I wish my brother was here to hear that George Strait song.ā
