This song was inspired by Bakersfield's country and western scene (which was led by Buck Owens), as well as listening to gospel programs on Los Angeles stations. In a 1978 interview with Rolling Stone
magazine, Mick Jagger said, "You know, when you drive through Bakersfield on a Sunday morning or Sunday evening, all the country music radio stations start broadcasting black gospel services live from LA. And that's what the song refers to. But the song's really about driving alone, listening to the radio." Asked if the girl in the song was a real one, Jagger replied, "Yeah, she's real, she's a real girl."
