Songfacts®:

  • This Mike Daly, Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Clawson penned nostalgic number takes a trip back to simpler times. Lucy Hale told Billboard magazine: "The reason I love country music is the stories and how nostalgic a song can feel. 'From the Back Seat' is a perfect example. When you hear that song, you see the music video played out - it's so visual."

    "There's a few details that are off," she added. "My parents were divorced when I was really young, but when I heard this song, it was kind of like my mom's upbringing. She was a cheerleader, she fell in love with her high school sweetheart, her parents went on road trips. It's pretty much my mom's story."
