Meaning
I love Gary Allan's music and pairing him with a legend like Willie Nelson for a song like this is perfect. Gary knows how to pour emotion into his music and this is just another great example of it. The song is about the life of a musician on the road and the emotional toll it takes on them. While being a showman has its highs ("the pretty girls, and the wine, and the money, and the good times") it also has its lower points ("the wear and tear on an old honky tonker's heart"), which refers to being away from your family for so long (he also talks about the lonely wife at the beginning). Definitely one of Gary's better songs although it isn't well known.
