This was penned by The Cadillac Three members Jaren Johnston and Neil Mason. Johnston told Roughstock
about the day it came to life. "One day, I was in my truck driving, and I just singing that chorus," he recalled. "So I called Neil and told him about it. He came over to my house, and we wrote it in about 45 minutes. I recorded it down, and it's actually on our first Cadillac Three record. Jake had the record, and he liked the song. He called me and said, 'Man, I think I'd love to cut this, and I would like to call the record that.' I was like, 'OK, cool!'"
"Then," continued Johnston, "when we signed with Big Machine, they were really into that song, too. So I had to call Jake back, and I was like, 'Dude, I think they want to use that song for us.' He was really cool about it, but then I heard from somebody else that he was a little upset about it because he loved the song so much. So I talked to Scott Borchetta, and I was like, 'He really likes it, so we should just give it to him.' So Scott let me go ahead and give it back to him. It worked out great, and we're really excited."
