LoCash's Preston Brust wrote this with producer Lindsay Rimes and new artist, Michael Tyler. The song deviates somewhat from the duo's country sound. "I had been listening to a lot of John Legend at the time, so I wanted a song that sounded like John Legend, with some guitar in it, and really make it kind of like a country version of that kind of thing," Brurst explained to The Boot
. "But I wanted the lyrics to really be honest."
"A lot of people, when they're interviewing us, they'll ask a question, like a fun question, and usually the fun question is always the same: 'If you're shipwrecked on an island, what's the one thing you have to have?'" Brust added. "And so, I sat down at the piano, and I said, 'You know what, here's what I've gotta have.' And you've gotta hear the song to find out, but it's really cool. It's a really cool song."
