Darius Rucker (from his record label's website): "It was inspired by [songwriter] Chris Stapleton. We were talking about how much he loves to call people when he's drunk, and he'll either be really sweet or he'll cuss them out. When I used to drink I did that, too. That song wasn't written so much about my view of life now; it's more where I was six or seven years ago, in the middle of being a rock star. I don't feel like one any more and that's a good thing. The Jammer mentioned in the song is one of my best friend's bars in Charleston. That's one thing that I really want to express in my country career: I want to give my music a sense of place and who I am. I'm from Charleston. I want people to know that in the same way that they know George Strait is from Texas, or Bruce Springsteen is from New Jersey."
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
