Mike Eli and James Young met at the University of North Texas where they became dorm roommates their freshman year.
They played guitar and eventually began writing and singing songs together; they formed the acoustic duo, Eli & Young, while attending the University of North Texas.
Chris Thompson and Jon Jones joined them later on and they became the Eli Young Band.
For the song’s music video Eli Young Band partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project. A non-profit that supports veterans and active-duty servicemen with pressing needs.
Featured was veteran Taylor Morris who became a quadruple amputee after an explosion in Afghanistan, along with his wife Danielle.
“There is such a special thing with this couple” Mike Eli tells Billboard. “Their story doesn’t need a music video or a song. It’s one of those things where, when you hear the story and see their videos, you are so moved by it right away.”
