Aldean told Entertainment.ie
: about this David Lee Murphy and Ross Copperman penned heartbreak song. "'Miss That Girl' is one of those songs is where you go through a break up and you sort of forget about everything and all it takes is a picture or whatever it is to sort of to bring all this stuff back," he said. "Of course, you're going through a break up or something you think oh there's never going to be another girl like that one until you meet the next one and then she's the best. You know what I mean; it's just the way it is."
"Back in the day it was mixtapes you hear a song like that you going through a breakup and everybody's making mixtapes," Aldean continued. "I don't really know what they do now, but they might do a mix thumb drive or whatever and send it to whomever, but that's the deal. That's why people did that is because that's how they were feeling at the time and they would give it to their boyfriends or girlfriend and go here is a brunch of sad songs and this is how I feel. It's because those songs struck an emotion with them and that's what you want."
