"Look at Us" features a pedal steel guitar intro from John Hughey, who was known for his "crying steel" method of playing by using the higher ranges of the instrument. Of this solo, Gill said that it "makes that song recognizable by what happens before any words even get sung."
The music video was directed by John Lloyd Miller and premiered in late 1991. It contains videos and photographs of several long-timed married couples, still in love. The video featured Gill's ex wife (Janis Arnold Gill) - they later divorced in 1997.
