The best thing about this track, no doubt is the production. The original demo of this song was mainly acoustic, backed by fiddle, but the final version is a masterpiece of different instruments: guitar, banjo, fiddle, and all the instruments missing in radio country. The fiddle is the true highlight of this song, with its prominent presence throughout the 3 minutes. Out of all of the classic country instruments, the fiddle is the one least often found in popular country tracks. Banjo, surprisingly is found more, with the banjo-pop tracks of Kelsea Ballerini and RaeLynn. But this song does not leave any instrument out, and throws back to old Dolly Parton tracks from the 70's and 80's.
Monroe has the potential to fill a gap missing in country radio and popular country music today: a true country artist. The females of country tend to lean to country pop -- Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift are prime examples -- and the males tend to lean to bro-country. But Monroe is different. She has her own voice and sound, and is country. Country radio needs that desperately.
