The song was written by Michael Dulaney, Jason Sellers and Paul Jenkins. "The energy is the first thing that struck me about 'Sunny and 75,'" Nichols told Radio.com
. "The song slowly builds into this screaming, almost like a Journey 'Don't Stop Believin'
' kind of tempo. So that to me is important, because the music itself brings out emotions, not just the lyrics or how you deliver them. The music builds, and it takes you on a journey. You feel like you're slowly and steadily moving out to the beach, and all the sudden you're sprinting."
