  • This rough-and-tumble, uptempo cut opens with the lines, "You got the bullets, I got the gun/I got a hankerin' for getting into something/I hit the bottle, you hit the gas/I heard your '65 can really haul some ass." It finds Lambert revisiting the firearms theme she's previously sung about on tracks such as "Gunpowder & Lead" and "Time To Get a Gun." Lambert penned the song with her Pistol Annies bandmate Angaleena Presley. She told Billboard magazine: "To me, that's classic Miranda. That's a song everyone would expect to hear from me. It's one of my favorites."
  • The music video was shot in late June 2012, and features a guest appearance by NASCAR driver Danica Patrick. "Danica was the person I thought of immediately when I envisioned the video," said Lambert. "We had so much fun playing two bad ass chicks up to no good. Danica has a really busy schedule, and I'm thrilled she was able to take time to come to Tennessee and be a part of this." Actor W. Earl Brown, who is known for his role as the brother of Camera Diaz in the movie There's Something About Mary, also appears in the clip. "Earl is a true character, and he brings so much charisma and authenticity to his scenes," said Lambert.
