Lead vocalist Hannah Blaylock penned this cut with her friend, Nashville songwriter Laura Veltz. Blaylock recounted the story of this party track: "Two things we appreciate about country music are the respect for the ones that have come before us and the timeless feel of a two steppin', fun-lovin,' down-home country song that never goes out of style," she said. "I started thinking about how many songs our beloved cowboy stars write about their favorite sidekicks on a rowdy night and I started getting REALLY excited. So I called up my all-time favorite co-writer and dearest friend, Laura Veltz, and we started getting to work. It was such a fun write for us, much like how you get sucked into a good book. We actually stretched out finishing it because we almost didn't want the fun to end! Let me just say that after that process, I have a longer list than any sane person should of cowboys and the 'hair on their chest' beverages they like to sing about."
The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
