Veteran songwriters Buzz Cason and Tom Douglas wrote this one. Cason's other compositions include "Everlasting Love
" (recorded by just about everyone) and "Another Woman
" by T.G. Sheppard; Douglas co-wrote "I Run To You
" by Lady Antebellum and another domicile song, "The House That Built Me
" by Miranda Lambert.
In his Songfacts interview
, Cason explained that they first came up with the groove and melody, and the first lyrics they developed were those in the first verse about the woman going through the express lane with too many items. Said Cason, "I said I loved that, let's write that, and he said, 'I don't know what it means' and we actually kind of finished it and didn't really know exactly what it meant."
