I so love this song. Very poignant when you know it was written for/about his brother.
At some level this song is about alcoholism. It was started, and initially written about/for Keth Whitley, who died of alcohol intoxication in 1989. Vince finished this song in 1994 after his brother, Bob, died of a brain hemorhage following a 100-mph drunk driving accident/binge that left him brain damaged and in a coma for four months. This song got the Grammy for best country music song in 1996.P
That one always gives me chills
