was recorded with Paisley's band, the Drama Kings, at the yellow farmhouse on the Country star's property. The only outside musicians to play on the album were Hunter Hayes, who contributed guitar on "Outstanding in Our Field," and pianist Gordon Mote, who tinkled the ivories on this song. "I've always loved Gordon," Paisley explained to The Boot
about Mote. "I called him and said, 'I really need what you do on this song,' which was a rare exception for an album that's entirely my band with no additional musicians playing other than Hunter Hayes . It's not an album full of studio musicians. Gordon came in and played that piano and he said, 'Can I come back and cut some things for my record here? That piano sounds unique. It's really got a thing.' I said, 'Yeah come back. It would be great just to have you on the farm.'"
