BEHIND THE SONG: This is probably one of the most re-written songs I've ever written. This was the song my dad and I danced to at my wedding. How do you sum up the best dad ever in 3-4 minutes? I started over about 5 or 6 times on this song because I just had to get it right. If you've been lucky enough to have a dad as amazing as mine, you might understand why this was so hard for me to write. My friend Britney & I spent several writing sessions just trying to figure out the best angle and what I really wanted to say, and in the end I had to just take my time with it and work on it over the course of a few months. I ended up using bits and pieces from one of our sessions & various versions of rewrites, keeping only the parts that really moved me. This song was also included on a CD of original songs that was the favor for the guests at our wedding, and I made my dad an original painting of a father and daughter dancing with the lyrics written around it that I gave to him at our rehearsal dinner (picture above). Thank God I played it for him before the wedding, because I would have been a mess if he had heard it for the first time when we had our father-daughter dance. That moment at our wedding was one I will always cherish.
