  • This song was penned by Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip and Marv Green. "That day we came in, and we were trying to write a tempo song," Hayslip recalled to Roughstock. "We didn't have anybody in mind when we wrote it and didn't have an idea. Somebody threw out the idea, 'Wild In Your Smile.'"
    Akins added that it was Hayslip who said something about 'smile,' then he put in the 'wild' part."
  • Regarding the song's meaning, Akins explained to Roughstock: "The song is about a guy picking up a girl for a date, and on the surface, she's real sweet looking. Pretty girl ... daddy's girl, but he can tell by her smile that she's got a wild side to her, even though she comes off as this good little angel.
    "Dustin, in the song, is basically saying let's get a little dangerous tonight," he continued. "Let's not do the normal of going to a movie and dinner date , let's ride around, maybe hit this party, and if that's not happening, then me and you can have a party. It's going to be more than just your average date because he can tell this girl's is up for doing anything and getting crazy ... as long as she's home by 10 [laughs]!"
