Originally the title track of Randy Owen's 2008 solo album on Broken Bow, Alabama changed its tempo when they re-recorded the tune for Southern Drawl.
Owen told Billboard magazine the recording is a tribute of sorts to one of their favorite artists. "We wanted to do something like Conway Twitty," he explained. "He had so many hits along the way, and was such an influence. That was definitely a nod to his style, and something for the ladies. I think about all the women who come home from work and have their husbands fix them a glass of wine or something and a romantic night. It's just something to get them in a romantic mood so they can enjoy the night."
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
