About the new song, Sheryl Crow talked in Good Morning America;
"I didn’t know what I was going to do with it and then suddenly we were presented with the Sandy Hook Promise and the opportunity to have a song for it. I said, ‘I just have written this song which is basically about what they went through.
This is just like a foot in the door to an overdue conversation that has been needed ... for a long time," Crow told ABC News' Rob Marciano before her performance. "The song was really just a project of love.
After Sandy Hook, we all felt everything was going to change, and yet it has not changed," Crow said. "People cling to the Second Amendment but really what we’re talking about with Sandy Hook Promise is just a sensible conversation about what can we do to curtail what’s happening in this country."
