This ballad is a collaboration with songwriter Lori McKenna
. The song was inspired by David Nail's hometown (and Sheryl Crow's) of Kennett, Missouri. He explained to Rolling Stone
that he arrived at a writing session with Lori McKenna and Barry Dean
nervous about an upcoming concert back home. "I didn't have the goal of writing a song about my hometown, about my life, but with the anxiousness of that show being a few days away, it was very much on my mind," Nail recalled. "I told myself a long time ago that I wanted to limit the reflective songs and songs about my childhood and how I was raised. But I've always been a sucker for them and I feel like this was the first one that I had written that really captures the feelings that I feel when I go back and those early relationships that I had. It set the tone for it to be a personal record."
