Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single taken from American Country music artist Josh Turner's fourth studio album, Haywire. The song was written by Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip. The trio also penned Jack Ingram's hit single "Barefoot and Crazy."
  • Rhett Akins told The Boot about the song: "This is another one of those good time summer feeling songs about hot weather and it being time to get in the boat, grab your girl and head to the lake or the river - similar to when the three of us wrote 'Barefoot and Crazy.' We didn't have any title mapped out or even a direction of where we were going. We didn't know where we were headed with this song while writing it, but we just dove into it. We came up with the title to the song as we were writing the chorus about save all your kisses up, bring all your sweet love, and pour it all over me. It's kind of a romantic, fun summer song. It turned out great!"
  • This was Turner's fourth country #1 single. "'All Over Me' is a song that I really got fired up about the first time I heard it... it really had a lot of energy," said Josh. "It was probably the most energetic song I had heard up until that point. I thought it was a hit, so I put it on hold and went into the studio to cut this song, and as the musicians started to take off on this song, it really took on a life of its own. The musicians just tore it up! It's very rhythmic. It's got that boogie-woogie feel to it, especially from the piano aspect of it. It just feels good."
