Moore wrote this song with his frequent collaborators Brian Dean Maher and Jeremy Stover.
This song was inspired by Moore's experience of touring with Hank Williams Jr. He explained to Great American Country: "We got off the road with Hank and Lynyrd Skynyrd and my producer, Jeremy, had just bought a house. I went over to see his house and Brian, our other co-writer, just happened to be there. I said, 'We've got to write a song at some point about me going out with Hank Jr. It probably won't ever make a record because it would be so personal and nobody really probably cares, but we have to write a song about that.' It was such a cool experience. Our first show that we played on that tour was in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and that is in the song. 'A lot of things a country boy learns in life/how to shoot a gun and how to use a knife/But when I pulled into Hershey P-A, and I took my guitar up on the big stage/That night I did the best I could/ Me and my band played pretty dern good/ And I took myself out and sat in the crowd and learned how Bocephus shakes 'em down/You've got to Hank it.'"
