The second verse of this song is about Mat Kearney
and his college friend Shawn McDonald going on their first tour ever together and all the stuff they went through. Kearney told New Release Tuesday: "I hadn't seen Shawn in a while and he came over to my house and I'd literally just written 'Los Angeles.' I was like, 'This is crazy. You've got to hear this.' It was fun to reconnect with him over that song."
