Josh Thompson recalled his writing session with David Lee Murphy and Casey Beathard. "We were writing out at David Lee Murphy's house, which is out in the country," he remembered to Roughstock
. "I think I said something like, 'How do you like it way out here?' It was just one of those things where the song and the title came from just more of a conversation. When I said that, it was one of those things where we all kind of looked at each other and we were like, 'We should write that.'
"That song literally fell out," Thompson continued. "It was like 'Our houses are protected by the good lord and a gun. And you might meet them both if you show up here not welcome son.' That was the first line out, and it was just on from there. It was one of those things where we wrote it, and right away, we knew it was great. I was super excited about it. It has stood up. It's one of those songs where every night live, people just go crazy over it."
