On January 20, 2011 Alan Jackson and his record label, Sony, parted ways after over 20 years. Three months later a new joint venture between Capitol's EMI Records Nashville and ACR (Alan's Country Records) was announced. This is the debut single from the new deal, which was shipped to Country radio on June 13, 2011.
Said Jackson of the this self-penned song: "Seems like every time you turn around lately there's just something heavy going on in the world, so I felt like singing something that was kind of light and fun."
When asked about the story behind this song during an interview with Country Weekly, Jackson replied: "It's just a fun summertime song - I had something to drink one time and a bug flew in it and I kinda made a note of that. Some people have asked if I was sitting someplace warm or near a beach when I was writing it, but I was actually in Nashville and it was pretty cold!"
