Morris first began dating fellow country singer Ryan Hurd in January 2015 and married him just over three years later. Morris has said in interviews that being happily married opened up new avenues for her songwriting for Girl
and that this song came from her own personal experience.

." Was this the ex who caused her to be in such a bad place when she started her romance with Hurd? Interestingly, Morris co-wrote both "Rich" and "To Hell & Back" alongside Jessie Jo Dillion and Laura Veltz.
