We're all so thankful for the support of the stations that have added the single, as well as the fans that have been requesting the song. Western Avenue have proven that a great song is a great song, whether it's an established act or a brand new artist. We look forward to seeing where this ride takes us all."
Matt Williams from Western Avenue said, "Wow! This is amazing! Can't wait to celebrate in Nashville." Nikki English, co-writer of the song (with Dave Woods) said, "This is so awesome! Holy Moly Macaroni!"
