This is one of two songs on Southern Way Of Life
that Carter wrote with Kacey Musgraves ("Merry Go 'Round
"). She recalled to American Songwriter
magazine: "It was just fun, it had a lot of Dolly roots to it. A good riff and tempo. It talks about the roots of who we are and making the best of a situation. The lyric says 'It's not the crown that makes the queen.' It's that kind of thing. 'What's the point in a pot of gold if you haven't got a hand to hold.' Just cool little lyrics that now, seeing her whole career and how she writes and us together, it was just a real good match. It was serendipity."
