The song was written by Shelton's fiancee Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott. The pair penned the tune in the summer of 2009 while they were on tour with Kenny Chesney. "It was one of the many nights I hopped on her bus and we stayed up late just drinking wine and playing music and writing music, Scott told The Boot
. "And I actually sang background vocals on Blake's cut of that song, and I'm looking forward to hearing it. He sang the crap out of it from what I heard in the studio… it's a real passionate number."
