  • Lyrics
  • This nostalgic Jaren Johnston and Jim Beavers penned Southern Rock tune features shout outs to classic rockers. "The feel of it resembles the title, Jake Owen told Billboard magazine. "It's got a cool Stones-y kind of feel to it. It's a southern rock kind of thing, and I love all the throwback references to Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison, and 'Daddy drove a Nova that was sky blue.' There's just a cool groove to it."
