The loss of Green's two grandfathers was a major inspiration for this sentimental cut. He previously sang about Grandaddy Lyndon, who passed away in 2018, on "Numbers on the Cars
." Grandaddy Buford, who died in 2010, was the one who first installed in Green a love for country music.
"My Grandaddy Buford was the country guy," he told Taste of Country
. "He was really into like Merle Haggard, Roy Acuff, Hank WIlliams and... that was what I learned to sing and play. I never sang when I played guitar until my grandaddy started pushing me and me and him would sit around and he'd fiddle on the harmonica a little bit. That was where I got my traditional roots."
