Songfacts®:

  • This lively ode to day-drinking was co-penned by "Chillin' It" singer Cole Swindell with Michael Carter and Brandon Kinney.
  • Producer James Stroud added some studio effects to give the song a contemporary feel. Young told Taste of Country: "There's a loop underneath the entire song and there's a synth sound as one of the main parts, the signature lick of the song. I think there's great ways to use that stuff."
