Oh my. This all goes to Marshall. I'm privileged, grateful, to be involved with this song, along with my co-writers and friends, Jeff Bass, Marshall Mathers, who couldn't be here. It's a great thing working with Marshall day in, day out. He's creative. He has symphonies in his head that I'm privileged to put on the tape. He's a good man, good heart. Here's to you, Marshall. Thank you so much. I love you Colleen, Kyle, Olivia, everybody. Thank you.
