Johnson talked about this song in an interview with Starpolish: "It was a fluke, it really was. I remember writing that song, and my mom was actually rehearsing, and she said, 'That's a really nice song, that's going to be something.' And I thought, I don't know, it's just another song. But she was real encouraging about it. It was one of those songs that came to me in five minutes, and it almost sounds like it's derived from something else, the melody. But it was just one of those things that happened and by default became a hit. I mean, it's got a nice melody to it and its got joy to it, and I so guess by default it worked out anyhow, although it wasn't a typical climate to embrace instrumental pieces."
