Jeff Hyde came up with part of the first verse when he was in the shower and when he arrived at the song writing session with Neil Mason and Lynn Hutton, he had those lyrics in his back pocket. When I first got to Nashville town
They called me in and sat me down
And told me all about the ins and outs of writing songs
Said write about the things you know about
If there's anything that you don't know about
Just stick around and you'll find out before too long
Hyde told The Boot
how they developed the track from that original idea: "They liked it, and Neil's good — He can sit down and build a track just like building a sandwich; it's nothing for him. He did something cool, and Lynn had some good ideas."
"I think that was one of those things that, we didn't know what the hook of the song was going to be, but we thought it was a cool story," he added. "Sometimes, if you just write line by line and see where it ends up, and you don't have a hook in mind, you don't know what the hook at the end of the chorus is going to be until you get there."
Eventually Lynn Hutton came up with the hook: "Some things don't go out of style."
