Song Lyric Sunday banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “Dad/Father/Barbecue.”

~~~~~~~~~~

One of my favorite country songs has a “daddy-feel” to it, thanks to its performer, Trace Adkins. You’re Gonna Miss This was released in January 2008 as the second and final single from Adkins’ album American Man: Greatest Hits Volume and became his fastest-climbing single to date, his third Number One hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #19 on the Pop 100 charts.

Ashley Gorley, one of the song’s writers, came up with the central idea for You’re Gonna Miss This one day while a repairman was working on his house. His two children (ages two and four at the time; he has since had a third) were running around the house and stealing the repairman’s tools; after Gorley apologized, the repairman replied, “Don’t worry about it — I’ve got two babies, too.” Gorley, after determining that the incident with the repairman might work as a song idea, recalled it to Lee Thomas Miller, who then suggested the title You’re Gonna Miss This.

Adkins then decided to record it after hearing it; being the father of five daughters, its message resonated with him.

Fun Facts:

    • Gorley and Miller worked backward from the bridge, changing the song’s scenario several times until they finally settled on having the song focus on a female central character.
    • The song’s music video was filmed in Adkins’s hometown of Sarepta, Louisiana and contains a variety of Americana scenes framed around the singer traveling about in a pickup truck.

Enjoy!
