About the Song

Toby Keith, a name synonymous with country music for over three decades. Now, for many of us, his music has been the soundtrack to life’s celebrations – tailgate parties, barbeques, and nights spent line dancing with friends. But Toby Keith also knows how to tug at the heartstrings, and that’s exactly what he does with the song “Go With Her”.

Released in 2004 on his album Greatest Hits 2, “Go With Her” takes a look at a different side of love – the kind that sometimes requires letting go. It’s a story many of us can likely relate to, a situation where a relationship has run its course, and staying together might not be the best thing for either person.

This song isn’t about anger or blame, though. It’s about a father offering heartfelt advice to his son who’s struggling with a troubled relationship. There’s a tenderness in Toby Keith’s voice as he sings about the heartache his son is facing, but also a firm belief that sometimes the most loving thing you can do is set someone free.

So, if you’re going through a tough time in your own relationship, or perhaps you know someone who is, then “Go With Her” might be the song for you. It’s a reminder that even in the face of heartbreak, there can be wisdom, compassion, and maybe even a little hope for the future.
