Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Easton Corbin's second album leans heavily on the same easy Texas swing that brought the Country artist success on his debut release. Lyrically, it finds the narrator disputing the assertion of his girlfriend's cousin that real love needs to involve drama. Instead, he says love can simply be just having a good time together and having fun.
  • The song was written by Jim Beavers ( Tim McGraw's "Felt Good On My Lips," Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup") and Bob DiPiero (Montgomery Gentry's "If You Ever Stop Loving Me," Brooks & Dunn's "You Can't Take The Honky Tonk Out of the Girl"). It features production from Carson Chamberlain, who also manned the controls on Corbin's debut album.
  • Speaking to CMT News, Corbin credited producer Carson Chamberlain with making the song work for him. "Carson's a great person to keep it in the middle of the road," he said. "He keeps it country with his style of production. He just knows traditional country music."
  • The song's music video was directed by Shaun Silva and filmed in Austin, Texas during the South By Southwest music conference. "This video was about just having fun with your girl, and that's exactly what we did," Corbin explained to CMT News. "The weather and the surroundings, just the whole thing was set up perfect for that."
  • Regarding the album title, Corbin explained: "All Over The Road is a fun title, but it's also actually what we're doing out there. We're all over the road trying to get music out to everybody, so I just thought it made sense."
