"Bring My Flowers Now" was initiated by Brandi Carlile. She suggested they "write the song [Tucker] had been trying to write for 30 years." Though the task appeared to be daunting, the track was actually written in about 30 minutes.
After writing the song, Tucker stepped into the booth to lay down her vocals. The recording taught her a lesson about not being too obsessive at getting everything right. The country star explained to The Boot
that she wanted to change a few things, but Carlile refused, saying, "This song sticks. This is what came out of your mouth, and that's the way we're gonna put it on there."
"We always want perfection - just getting somewhere in the state of it would be nice," Tucker added. "But we always want it to be perfect. And it's never gonna be perfect. In fact, if you were perfect, nobody would like you, right?"
