Though Lambert and her band deliver the song at top speed, it wasn't always such a breakneck banger. When she wrote the song with Ashley Monroe and K.S. Rhoads, it was more of a folk tune. Lambert recalled to Taste of Country
that she loved the lyrics but felt it "wasn't finding its spot."
It was Lambert's producer Jay Joyce who suggested the change. He said, "Let's try a flaming red vibe - let's do it punk and see what happens."
