Mitchell Tenpenny told The Boot
how the song takes a familiar topic and gives it a twist. "I think a lot of people have dealt with that, where you break up, get your heart broken, try to drink them off your mind," he said. "It's been written a bunch of times, but I like the perspective of, you quit drinking for a second to stand a chance of getting over somebody. It's kind of where the song arrived."
"I've dealt with it - tried to drink them off your mind, and it didn't work out and did a double take on it," Tenpenny added.
