The track Paisley’s co-written was initially released on Universal Music Group, Nashville’s EMI Nashville Records.

It also makes it into the all genre Digital Song Sales for the year.

The song features a spoken section from the Ukrainian leader, and the earnings of the song benefits United24, a charitable program to restore Ukrainian homes destroyed during the ongoing Russian invasion (which began February 24th, 2022, a year to the day before the song’s release).
