Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman and Ben Hayslip originally sent the song to the singer's producer, Jeremy Stover. Justin Moore recalled to The Boot
"Typically, my producer goes out and looks [for songs] if we want to look for some outside material, or if I haven't written at all, he'll go out and find stuff. Rhett and Ross and I in particular have written a lot of songs together and had hits together. So when I see their names on a song, I definitely pay attention, because they're buddies, and we've had a lot of success together.
I think that ['Kinda Don't Care'] was sent to my producer, and he sent it to me. The honky-tonk nature of it [drew me to it]; it just, to me, was kind of old school, something like Hank [Williams] Jr. would have done. Rhett and Ross and Ben, who wrote it, they're so good at turning lyrics and coming up with unique ideas."
