Songfacts®:

  • This simple, fun cut is the second single and title track from American Country artist Randy Houser's sophomore record. The song, which was originally penned by Houser in the mid 2000s, spotlights the way a woman can make a man feel and he specifically recorded it to be a single from the album.
  • Houser told The Boot why this was chosen as a single: "Mostly my promotion team at the record label selected it. We had just done a merger with Toby Keith's label, so it's ShowDog Universal now. We're working with a brand new team, so we really wanted something they believed in. So they heard a demo of 'I'm All About It,' and we went and recorded it. They said, 'We can get this on all the radio stations.' We had just come off a single that didn't work, 'Whistlin' Dixie,' which I loved and still think should have been a big hit. So at this point, I was like, 'Okay, let's record it. If you guys really think this is a hit song, we need it.' The thing is, I need radio to play my music so I have work! I really love the song. It's a great summer song, it's uptempo and it sounds good on the radio."
