"We're not so great," writer and director ​​Del Shores said. "But we're here, and y'all make everything better. It's been a sad week for us. There was a discussion for a while that we were gonna cancel because I was just so 'tore up,' as we say in the South, over Leslie's death," Shores added. "As this became an impromptu memorial service of sorts, we figured there was no better way than to kick it off than with a special message in song by Rosemary and Newell Alexander."
