Brandy Clark wrote this song about a single mom with Lori McKenna
. Clark explained how McKenna brought an idea to their session based on a video she had watched of her on YouTube. She explained in a Genius
"I was setting up a song from my first record, 'Pray To Jesus,' and in the video I was talking about the woman that inspired the song. I said, 'she had five kids and no husband.' And that really hit Lori—maybe because she has five kids (she also has a husband). She said, 'I think this would be a great song—I don't think it should be five kids, but maybe three?'"
