This song was co-produced and co-written by Swedish producer Max Martin, who has worked with Kelly Clarkson, Pink and Britney Spears amongst others.
The song's main riff is played on a mandolin and steel guitars are utilized as well. In an interview with CMT News, the interviewer expressed surprise about hearing such traditional country instruments in the song since it was produced by a Swede. Underwood responded: "Well, it was actually produced by Max Martin and Mark Bright. When you get something like that together, it's like they're superheroes and they're combining forces to make something really great. So, yeah, we brought him in to my world. And I think it worked out really well."
CMT asked Underwood if she had any idea how the song would turn out when those Bright and Martin got together? She replied: "No! (laughs) And you never know when you work with somebody new, no matter who it is. You always just wonder if it's going to work out. But you never know unless you try. And it really did. It came together and it ended up sounding so fresh and so different than anything I've done and that I've heard anybody else do. So it was a lot of fun, meeting new people."
