Following the heartfelt performance of the touching ballad, the song hit No. 1 on Billboard's Country Digital Song Sales chart, Top 3 on the all-genre chart, and the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Country Songs and Videos.
Penned in 2018 by Keith, following a conversation with Clint Eastwood about how to escape the clutches of father time, the song has taken on a deeper meaning with Keith telling NBC's Backstage Live that he chose that specific song to sing “because I’ve been going through my cancer fight for the last couple of years and it’s really inspiring for a lot of people. And coming back on TV for the first time and performing live in front of a live audience, I thought it was fitting.” The well-timed performance followed an 18-month break where the “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” legend took to focus on his health.
