Legend co-wrote the song with Toby Gad. Aside from the music video, he will also appear on Underwood's "My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood." The special will premiere on December 3 on HBO Max.

When she was 14, Underwood decided to audition for the record label, Capitol Records. They then started a contract. However, it was canceled because of the change in management.

Underwood's big break came after joining "American Idol." Her debut single, titled "Inside Your Heaven," made her the only country artist to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
