At the request of T Bone Burnett, Earle wrote the song "If Momma Coulda Seen Me
" for a Season 1 episode of Nashville
that aired in 2013. The next season, Buddy Miller took over from Burnett as musical director on the show and asked Earle for another song. He delivered "Lookin' For A Woman," but it didn't make the cut. When Earle started working on his album So You Wannabe An Outlaw
, he started with the two songs he wrote for the show.
