This was the first song that Kane Brown, Jordan Schmidt and Matthew McGinn wrote together. Schmidt recalled to The Boot
: "The inspiration actually came from a Shel Silverstein poem called What If
. It's all about the same thing our song is about, in a way: What if this? What if that? If you focus on the "what ifs," you can drive yourself crazy. So we thought, why isn't there a song about that?"
McGinn added: "I probably chimed in on that with my crippling anxiety. Pretty much every day, I wake up and think, 'What if this is the last day I get to do this? What if they hate me? What if they don't, and then I have to go talk to a bunch of media? Oh my God!'"
