Kip Moore has a strong Christian faith and this song is not a rejection of God. The singer explained to Taste of Country
that he is harking back to his younger days when he was confused and was asking questions rather than just accepting what he was told. He said: "It's not about a dirt road and it's not about beer. And it's more about the rebellion of that youth … when you have that youth and you're trying to figure out who you are. And it's that rebellion against what theories and beliefs are being pushed on you kind of thing."
"And I know that me personally, it's something that maybe fans can't understand if they didn't grow up like that," Moore continued. "But I was very content at a young age with those fishin' holes and hanging out with my buddies and riding dirt roads. And that was a way of life kind of thing. And when somebody was describing, you know, golden streets and these kind of things … well you know I like what's here."
"It's not about not believing," he added. "Of course you don't take it literal. I mean if I'm at the pearly gates and God says come on in, I'm not gonna say, 'Nope not coming in unless you got a dirt road.'"
