The pair captured the heartbreaking song in the studio — as a duet. The idea was all Johnson's, according to Watkins, who says the independent Alabama singer tinkered with her finished track after hours in the studio, adding his unmistakable baritone.
After receiving a late night text to come to RCA Studio A, where she recorded her upcoming debut album and where Johnson has his Nashville office, Watkins says she was surprised with the finished song. "Jamey said, 'I did some changes. I hope you are OK with them.' They took the band out of the first two verses, so it is just acoustic guitar. When Jamey came in, I realized he had made it a duet and I started crying," Watkins said in a statement.
