wrote this R&B-influenced song about a guy with a girlfriend who lives in LA; his cowriters on the track were Nathan Chapman and Andrew Dorff. Unlike many of the women portrayed in country music, this one is taking the lead in the relationship, introducing her guy to Jackson Browne and driving him around in her convertible. Owen told Billboard
"I did date a girl out there in LA for a little while, and it was inspiring to me because she represented California in a way. She had that free-spirit attitude, and she'd say, 'Hey, let's go do this. I wanna show you this. I wanna show you that.' I think that it's a cool story. It's a way of writing it from a totally different perspective of allowing her to take the wheel.
And that's probably my favorite song on the record, not just because of the lyrics. I love steel guitar. I've always wanted to keep it on my records, although the times have changed a lot and you don't hear that much steel guitar so much on records anymore. But on this song in particular, it doesn't sound so honky-tonk as much as it sounds almost like '70s country, kind of Gram Parsons. I wanted that feeling of just driving through Laurel Canyon, like you would think of an old Eagles song with the convertible and the wind blowing through your hair."
