Moore wrote the tune after reflecting back on his youth and how he came to the realization that owning a truck helped him pick up girls. "The song is what it is," Moore told Taste of Country
. "It's one of those things where I drove a little box car in high school and college. In both high school and college, similar things happened to me where I was maybe pursuing somebody. I got somebody to go out with me, and they didn't seem real interested every time they climbed in that little bucket car of mine."
However, Moore quickly learned that ditching his "little box car" for a pickup can change everything. "On two different occasions that thing broke down and somebody let me use their truck," he continued. "It was like I became a whole new person. I couldn't peel [girls] off of me. I was like, 'Wait a minute… I'm the same damn dude, I'm just driving a different ride. There must be something about a truck!'"
