This was the first song that Troy Verges penned with his friends Kip Moore and Blair Daly after taking time off for the 2011 festive period. "So we just showed up after Christmas break, kind of like when you're going back to school ... 'What did you do over Christmas break?'," Verges recalled to Roughstock
with a smile. "We were just talking a while. Blair had that title, 'Beer Money,' and Kip had been out doing a bunch of shows. He had gotten into doing things that really spoke to his crowd and the people who were at his shows. He had noticed how big of a deal it was for people and how much of a release it was to go to a show. They bust their butt all week, and then they are able to go have fun on the weekends. So we were kind of writing to them. Kip knew exactly what he wanted to say in the song, and how he wanted it to sound and how he wanted to present himself, so it made it real easy to write."
"We wrote that song on whatever day we wrote it on, and they cut it two days later," Verges continued. "It was a single by the end of the year. It was the last # 1 song of last year. All in one year, we wrote it, recorded it, singled it and it became a #1. I've never had it happen that fast. It was all just perfect timing. It was a fun write. To be able to have that all together with your buddies is just perfect. It's a lot of fun."
