A standout song from country music’s rising star Craig Campbell, the song tells the story of someone thinking about heaven and where he might fit in when it comes time to head to his heavenly home. Since its release earlier this year, the song has received rave reviews from fans with one stating that “this is what country music is supposed to sound like,” according to a recent press release.

It’s also a beautiful song that Craig surely shared with his wife Mindy and daughters Preslee and Kinni Rose shortly after he wrote it alongside songwriter Dave Turnbull. “Being in a house filled with girls including the dog and cat, definitely keeps me on my toes,” says Craig in a statement. “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
