Co-penned by King George, Bubba Strait, and Monty Criswell, the new single sees the country legend finding joy in life’s simpler things. It’s easy to get caught up in all that life has to offer and lose track of important things. The song is a reminder to take a moment to take in the small joys in life.

Throughout the song, Strait sings about finding the joy in things like ole Merle Haggard songs, phone calls with mom, sunsets, homemade ice cream, and more.
