Songfacts®:

  • When Jeremy Stover, Jamie Paulin and Thomas Rhett Akins penned this song they included the sound of an ukulele, giving it a Hawaiian feel. Said Scotty: "When I hear this song, I have a bunch of pictures going through my mind, like jumping in the lake, stuff I grew up doing. The Hawaiian feel and fun nature is the reason I cut it. It's about a girl and a guy and they are at the lake. They are about to leave and he says, 'Write my number on your hand so I can call you up.' At the end, it takes a twist. She says,' If you want to see me, write my number on your hand.' It has all of the country things in it, like farmer's tans and Coca-Cola."
