  • Lyrics
  • This Country rocker was released as the fourth single from Jake Owen's third studio album, Barefoot Blue Jean Night. The song finds Owen singing of someone so in love with his girl he is happy to go anywhere as long as he is by her side. The romantic tune was written by Nashville songwriters Ben Hayslip (Blake Shelton's "All About Tonight"), Jimmy Yeary (Rascal Flatt's "Why Wait") and David Lee Murphy (Thompson Square's "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not").
  • Some people queried the lyric, "I'll go anywhere. West Virginia baby, I don't care." Owen told Country Weekly: "I never thought twice about that when we recorded it. I've had people say, 'Oh, you don't even care if you have to go to West Virginia, huh? Is it that bad?' I'm like, 'You are reading way too much into this!' This song just felt good and I wanted to play it in my truck, drive around and sing it for the rest of my life. There's nothing against double-wides or West Virginia. If that's where she wants to go, that's where we're going!"
