Carter said, “I just finally started telling him who I was. Besides your mother, this is the person that I am. This is the life that I live. So, my son started actually tearing up. ’Cause he’s like, ‘That had to be a horrible life.’

“I was like, ‘My life was never horrible. It was just different.’ So, that made him want to do a song about it.”
