This song was co-written by Dave Berg, whose other credits include Rodney Atkins' "If You're Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)
" and Emerson Drive's "Moments
". The other co-writers were Sam and Annie Tate. "I was walking around with most of that chorus … not exactly sure what it was or what to do with it," Berg told the Nashville Songwriters Association International. "And then one day, my co-writers, Sam and Annie Tate, put the hook on it. Their great storytelling abilities helped to finish it."
