This sermon on the pitfalls of fame was originally written by Brown and his songwriting partner Dave McCracken for Kanye West's 2008 album, 808's And Heartbreak. Brown explained: "Dave was asked to write a song for Kanye West. Amanda Ghost wrote the melody, Dave wrote the music and they wanted me to write some lyrics. It had to be a sort of autobiographical song for Kanye. So we had a few meetings and Amanda told me about Kanye because she knew him. So she texted him and told him I would do the lyrics and he was delighted." However, the track missed the deadline for inclusion on the album and instead Brown chose to keep it for himself.
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
