Songfacts®:

  • Steel Magnolia is the country duo of Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey, who rose to prominence after winning the CMT show Can You Duet? "Last Night Again" was the third single from their debut album. In a Songfacts interview with Joshua Scott Jones, he told the story behind this song. Said Jones: "We wrote that with Hillary Lindsey who wrote [Carrie Underwood's] 'Jesus, Take The Wheel,' and has had a bunch of huge, smash hits. She's a real cool girl, she's just really laid back. We knew that we had to write fill-up songs to put on the record and we went over there one afternoon and sat down with her. And she was just cool. It was like being at your buddy's house. So we sat on her floor and had a couple of beers and we wrote that song. It was a little bit of a fantasy thing, kind of like a love at first sight – it's a hook-up song. What I always say when we play that live, I say, 'Everybody, this is a hook-up song. For those of you that haven't hooked up, your parents have. So don't worry about it.' That's really the story behind that song. It's just a sexy, flirtatious, fun song that I think that most people can probably relate to."
  • The song's music video was directed by Greystone Communications and filmed in a Nashville bowling alley. Meghan admitted in an interview with The Boot that she's proud of the fact that she bowled a strike while wearing heels.
