Brett Young first met Taylor Mills in Scottsdale, Arizona while she was at Arizona State University; the pair went on to date for six years. After school they moved to Los Angeles together, but they broke up after Young upped sticks to Nashville.
This song, like many on Brett Young's debut album, was inspired by their split. He penned it after taking a plane out west and spending a week there without getting in touch with Taylor.If you really don't have it figured out by now
There's no need for me to hang around
I gotta get outta town
Young told Taste of Country
, "A little depression and a glass of whiskey goes a long way in a writers' room for me."
