Hardy, Devin Dawson and Jordan Schmidt wrote the song on January 7, 2019 and Schmidt did the demo the same day. As an aspiring artist, Hardy thought about recording the song under his own name. He explained to The Boot
that he told Dawson and Schmidt: "This sounds like something I would do. Let's see if we can get someone to bite on it first. If we go through a round of pitches and nobody likes it, I want it for myself."
So, Hardy's publisher sent the demo to Blake Shelton's producer Scott Hendricks a couple of days later. He immediately passed it onto Shelton who then cut the song within a week of the threesome writing it.
