Blake suspects that Craig Wiseman wrote this song about a redneck out of place in Hollywood with his turns on The Voice
in mind. He told Roughstock
: "When 'Small Town Big Time' came, I was prepared to be entertained, but what I wasn't prepared for was how dead on it was. It sounds like he wrote a song knowing my situation in Hollywood. 'Cause I have some friends out there and people that I've become very close to and care about, and it's ironic because that is not where I ever thought I would end up for any amount of time. But every night when I'm there I'm thinking about and wondering what they're doing back in Oklahoma or Tennessee."
