The lead single from Randy Houser
's third album was penned by the Nashville hitmakers Vicky McGehee, Wendell Mobley and Neal Thrasher. It was his first full release since leaving Show-Dog Universal in 2011 and signing with Broken Bow Records' Stoney Creek division. The song was sent to radio May 7, 2012 and to iTunes the following day.
It was Stoney Creek owner Benny Brown who brought Houser the song. "I didn't even know who wrote when I heard it," the singer admitted to The Boot
. "The first time I heard it go, 'hair down, hair down,' I was like, 'Bam! I've got to have that.' I thought it was a hit. I loved it; it was hip and cool. It's very relatable, too, because everybody who listens to country music is not in the country. One thing we have to remember as songwriters is that we have to consider that country music is the
country's music. That doesn't mean that everybody's rural."
