  • This is the only track on Enjoy Yourself, for which Currington has a co-writing credit. He explained to The Boot: "I really wanted to record an album full of my favorite songwriters in town and bypass anything that I've written this time. But it came to that one slot where I was trying to find that really laid-back song, and the only thing that came to mind was one that I had written about seven years ago with Scotty Emerick and John Scott Sherrill, which is the 'Bad Day of Fishin'' song. So, I just grabbed it and recorded it and put it on there, and that's the only reason I made it on there as a songwriter."
  • Currington loves to go fishing. He said: "It's one of my favorite things to do, definitely, during some downtime. Like the song says, the hook of it is 'a bad day of fishin' beats a good day of anything else.' That's me, no doubt. It doesn't matter. Just being out there on the water is good for me."
