The song was written by Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, along with songwriters Jordan Schmidt, Jimmy Robbins and brothers Brad and Brett Warren. Brad Warren explained to The Boot
that the sextet didn't originally have Jason Aldean in mind when they started out on the tune.
"We were trying to write a show-opener for Florida Georgia Line. That was the point of the day: They were looking for a show-opener. So, Brett has the title, and we had talked about it the day before a little bit, and kind of got something working. The song started sounding great, and we were all like, 'Wow, this is turning into a great track. This is really something. This is good'" And somewhere in the middle, BK said, 'This would be great for Jason Aldean.' I said, 'Oh no. This is for you.'"
He added: "That never works out. When you're writing with one big artist and they say it would be good for another big artist, certainly that's not going to work out. So we figured that we wasted our day, but we had good fellowship. And then, two days later — that was a Friday, and Monday, Jason Aldean cut it."
