This is a vocal duet between band members Cruz Contreras and Trisha Gene Brady. "It's about a couple who has kind of gotten set in their ways," Conteras explained to Billboard magazine. "I had this image of a couple just sitting on the couch, watching TV, and they are ignoring each other. Something happens, and they start to reminisce about the days when they would go out dancing, and have a good time. It's all about getting back to your roots, and the simple things in life."
Conteras wrote the song in February 2015 along with the rest of Hard to Please. "We had about two weeks to write the entire record, which was very nerve-racking," he recalled. "We had such a busy touring schedule. Luckily, we had a winter snowstorm - and we typically don't get a lot of snow in Knoxville, so we ended up having it all week. [It] gave us a chance to write and arrange a little bit. One of the first songs we wrote was 'Dancin'."
