Songfacts®:

  • Scotty sings about a girl making a country boy look good on this Rhett Akins and Lee Thomas Miller penned rocker. He said: "It talks about how I might have a dirty truck, but when you are sitting there beside me, you make it look good. At the end it says, I never thought of getting settled down and having a serious relationship, but you make that look good. It talks about some things in life that had never looked too good to this dude, but now that he is with her, she makes them look good and makes him want to do them."
  • Both a father and son contributed to Clear As Day. Whilst Rhett Akins co-penned this song, his son, Thomas, co-wrote "Write My Number on Your Hand."
