Pearce and McBryde wrote the song with Shane McNally in late May or early June 2021 for her 29: Written in Stone
album. Both women felt from the beginning the song would be a great duet with Pearce portraying the wife, and McBryde the mistress. "I'm certainly not going to be the one to be out changing a tire and grab[ing] a beer," Pearce told Taste Of Country
. "That felt more like Ashley, and my scenario felt more like me."
