This is something really special" Couldn't have said it better myself @lindsayell.... just one more day.... #WhatHappensInASmallTown https://t.co/JO5lisF0Mn

The song, which is the first duet Gilbert has done with a female, dives into his breakup with Amber Cochran.

While Brantley and Amber are now happily married, that wasn't always the case.

Rather, as the song plays out, we learn that the two broke up years ago while living in a small town, but the memories remain and haunt Gilbert -- As wherever he goes, he thinks about Amber.

Lindsay was able to channel the pain that Amber was feeling during the breakup, and together, they released one heck of an intense duet.
