Songfacts®:

  • The title of this Scotty McCreery, Frank Rogers and David Fanning penned tune can be misleading at first glance. It isn't about distancing himself from a young woman, but instead getting closer. Scotty explained: "It's a guy talking about, 'You've got your girls to hang out with and do girly things like paint your nails and I've got my guys to watch football with. So we've got that covered and I don't want to do that with you. I want to be more than that: I want to be somebody who has a relationship with you.'"
