Lambert explained this acoustic country swing number, which was inspired by a 1980 Merle Haggard song: "I've been obsessed with Airstreams for a while now. I don't really know why. Don't have one, don't need one. But I want one! I always do 'The Way I Am' by Merle in my show, if I have an encore, just because I love that song, and it's not right not to play a Merle song on stage. I was telling Blake (Shelton) one day, 'There's a song missing that I haven't written yet.' He said, 'Why don't you go write "The Way I Am" for you?' And I did. That song is definitely, what if I wasn't doing this? What if I could just fly away out of my body for a day?"
