Jerry Flowers told Taste of Country
about the writing of this song. "The first day we kinda fooled around with it, we had a little bit of a different groove," he recalled. "I had a different guitar riff, a little bit more uptempo kinda straight-ahead kinda riff, and what we do, me and his producer, Zach [Crowell], we'll start building a groove and building a track, and then he'll just start feeling ideas."
Hunt then shaped those musical ideas with some improvised lyrics. "He's amazing. He's one of the best songwriters I've ever worked with," Flowers noted. "He'll just walk into the vocal booth and start spitting out ideas quickly, and then we start weeding through them. I think that was the first day, he hit upon that 'House Party' idea, and then the next time we got together to work on it again, we changed the groove, and I came up with that riff that's Jackson 5-ish, and that's when it just really started coming together."
