This was the fourth single released by Country music act Rascal Flatts' from their second album Melt.
The West Virginian songwriter Arlos Smith penned the song. It was the second Country #1 hit that he'd written, the previous one being "Home to You" by John Michael Montgomery in 2000.
The song references the easy-going life lived in the fictional town of Mayberry, North Carolina from The Andy Griffith Show. Lead singer Gary LeVox commented: "The banjo really stands out on this track. It tells a lot about life in 2002, how busy you can get being caught up in the rat race. It reminds me of my childhood and it's a really cool tune - one of our favorites."
