  • Lyrics
  • Jerrod Niemann joins Colt Ford on this song, which Ford explained on his Crank It Up DVD is about "Getting lost with a country girl where it's just you an her."
  • Like many of Ford's songs, this one features a dirt road. Ford's most famous song about an unpaved byway is "Dirt Road Anthem," which he co-wrote with Brantley Gilbert. That song became a big hit for Jason Aldean.
  • Ford wrote this song with the Nashville songwriters Jaron Boyer and Jeff Hyde. Boyer's co-writes include "She's Just Like That" by Joe Nichols and "I Ain't Ready to Quit" by Jason Aldean; Hyde co-wrote the Eric Church hit "Springsteen."
