Gino DePinto, The Boot
"The original phrase came from my step-kids' grandfather," the Country Music Hall of Famer explained. "He had received bad news about his health, and that was his response: 'What are they going to do? Threaten me with heaven?' How very profound ... I think this song honors him in a really great way."
