This was penned by Tony Martin, Wendell Mobley and Neil Thrasher. The idea for the song came when Thrasher was giving Mobley directions to Gary LeVox's ranch. Mobley recalled to American Songwriter
magazine: "I remember I was driving up my street on my way home and Neil and I were on the phone talking about an upcoming write we had with Gary LeVox at Gary's ranch to write the song 'Changed
Mobley had written there a few times before, but he explained, "it's so far out and so backwoods that every time I go I have to get new directions."
"The last few roads do not have names, not kidding!," he continued. "Neil hunts out there and actually has property connected to Gary's so he can do the drive blind folded. For some reason during this particular refresher course he ended the long drawn out directions with 'and you go and you go and you go … till you hear a banjo' and we both just broke out laughing and said, 'let's write that!' We were with Tony Martin the next day as I recall and just knocked it all out that day in my studio."
