  • This was written by Nashville songwriter Travis Matthews with the Warren Brothers (Brett and Brad Warren). Randy Houser told IHeartRadio: "I just love those songs, all three of the songwriters are just some of my favorite songwriters, and they write such honest songs.

    When you hear that title, you think it'd just be like a honky-tonk song, but it's really not. It's about struggle with addiction. Those guys, they live clean lives now, but I'm sure there's a struggle every day, and it definitely is something that I could relate to, let's put it that way. Just one of my favorite songs, and not just on this album, but one of my favorite songs ever."
