PWT's vocalist and songwriter Tom Higgenson explained this song's meaning to Alternative Press magazine: "To me, this song is about that first time in your life when you look out into the sky at night and you realize how big the universe really is. This in turn makes you realize how small you really are. To this day, this thought still scares the s--t out of me. I could drive myself insane thinking about it. We really have no idea what's out there or the big answers to all the big questions. The crazy thing is that we'll never know."
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
