Though Johnson had written the bulk of his previous material, he put out word in Nashville that he was open to songs from other sources. "Ain't Nothin' to It" was presented to him by David Lee and Leslie Satcher. A song about good men with good morals, Johnson explained to The Boot
, that as the father of two daughters he hopes these are the type of males his young girls will hook up with when it's time to start dating. One's on year number 33
And one just bought that diamond ring
One says "Dad, so how'd you do it?"
The other just laughs and says "There ain't nothin' to it"
Just try to quit smokin' and reel back the drinkin'
Don't always tell her everything you're thinkin'
And dance her when she needs dancin'
You get up and go to work, get up and go to church
Crawl up in that bed right next to her and listen
Instead of having all the answers
Johnson said: "Just love on her, be there for her - that kind of sentiment from those two men, are the type of man I hope my daughters find."
