Songfacts®:

  • This song tells the story of a shy girl who cuts loose when she moves to the South. Luke Bryan penned the tune with Michael Carter, Jeff Stevens and Jay Clementi. "A song like 'Move' is harder to write, because one wrong lyric and it gets cheesy," he told Pop Crush. "[But] finally, we landed on some stuff that I really, really like and some stuff that I felt like I could sell on stage."
  • Luke Bryan said "Move" is meant to be a fun song. "It's what I envision, big ole country dance clubs across the country playing that and it filling up and everybody having a great time," he commented. "There's a little inside story about a girl that moves to the south and she's kind of shy and then she gets in with these kind of rebel crowd girls and they teach her how to let her hair down and all that, it's pretty fun. A lot of imagery in that. Kind of a cool picture painted in that, and [I'm] really proud that I got to write that song with Michael Carter and Jay Clementi."
