Songfacts®:

  • We suspect if pressed, Moore would say his kind of woman is his wife, Kate. However, songwriters are allowed their little fantasies. He told the radio station WSOC regarding this song: "It was written about the kind of girls that I liked or looked for, well, used to look for that is. It's a really hooky song and it's one of the first songs we've done that's female-oriented."
  • Moore started of writing this tune three or four months before he completed it with frequent collaborators Brian Dean Maher and Jeremy Stover.
