"The song itself just kinda one of those story songs that I feel like everybody can relate to about how life is so hectic and it's so nice when, if and when, you actually get to kinda step away for a second," Underwood said in a video posted to Facebook. "We all need that time to ourselves and to get to take a break, and I really hope you guys love it because I'm so excited about it!"
