Jason Aldean told The Boot
how he came to record this song:
"Tyler and Brian Kelley from Florida Georgia Line, those guys have written songs for me in the past: They wrote 'Lights Come On
,' and 'Burnin' It Down
' and 'Black Tears
.' They write songs all the time, and when we go in to start recording an album, Tyler will sometimes pitch me some songs that they've written that he feels might work for whatever it is I'm doing.
So he came over to my house one day, and we were riding around in my truck listening to songs, and he was like, 'We just wrote this on Friday! Check it out.' I heard a verse and half of the chorus of this thing, and then I just stopped the music and said, 'Are y'all cutting this song?' He was like, 'I don't know. We just wrote it, and we're not going into the studio for another few months.'
I told him, 'I want it.' And he asked me when I was going in, and I said I was going in to the studio in two weeks. So he said, 'Well, you're going in before us, so if you want it, take it.'"
