Dunn came up with the title before penning this straight-up love song about turning down temptation for the one you love with Craig Wiseman and David Lee Murphy. He recalled to The Boot
: "I was reaching up to grab a bottle of water and I yelled back at them, 'What about 'I don't dance?'"
From this original idea, the three songwriters created the second track of Dunn's debut solo album, Ronnie
. "I said, 'We do it with a twist: one verse you talk about how you don't dance, but the crux of the story is that it's a love story about how you're going to stay true to love,'" Dunn continued. "It's not a cheating song at all. It's about how hard to face temptation and all the other demonic things I see."
