Kacey Musgraves had joined Willie Nelson during select dates of his 2014 tour. This collaboration came about while she was on Nelson's tour bus and asked him why he doesn't play the song live anymore. "He couldn't believe I knew it," she recalled to Radio.com
. "I just really loved it. It's very honest and very country, [and] it's a neat perspective. He seemingly pulled a guitar out of a cloud of smoke and started strumming. I was of course dying inside a little bit."
