Songfacts®:

  • Craig Morgan penned this fiddle-tinged tribute to a small-town upbringing with longtime creative partner Phil O'Donnell and Craig Wiseman. The singer told Yahoo! Music: "That was an easy song to write. Kind of about where we're from. Where I live, you always see a whole lot more trucks than you do cars. And here again, it's just talking about the kind of people that we are."
  • Morgan spent ten years in the United States Army, serving in the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions, before launching his music career. He references his time in the military on this cut. Said Morgan to Yahoo! Music: "What I love about this song is where I threw in a bit of a tribute to the military without making it the major source of content. Having been in the military, I never wanted anyone to think that I was taking advantage of my service, so I always try to steer clear of that sort of material to a degree. And this was a song that I thought we got to pay tribute and talk about it, without it being the focal point."
