It was Josh Kear, the songwriter whom Dierks Bentley penned "Drunk on a Plane
" with, that came up with the idea for this song. Bentley recalled to The Boot
"I heard it, and I just thought, 'I don't know what that is, but I love it.' It was the same thing when I first heard 'Drunk on a Plane' - I love drinking, and I love planes - and with 'Woman, Amen' I had that same feeling of, I don't know what that is, but let's just write it."
