It was Nail's long-time producer, Frank Liddell, who persuaded him to record the song. He recalled to The Boot
: "The day that we went in and recorded four or five songs, we had a list of about five or six. I was eating breakfast by myself that day, too... There was a calling. There was something that led me to believe that I at least should entertain the fact that we should record this song. I sent Frank a text and said, 'Hey, man, do you remember the song?' He wrote back, 'Thumbs up,' which is what I get from Frank a lot."
