Thomas Rhett, Sean Douglas and Joe Spargur penned the song on a bus in Little Rock, Arkansas. Douglas recalled the songwriting session during an interview with The Boot
"It was the first day. We woke up in the morning, rolled out of the bunk and came out. Three guys, having coffee, essentially still in our underwear, talking about how we had written these frivolous but fun tunes before, and talking about our beautiful wives and … talking about wanting to write something that might last for a minute, that might make an emotional impact on somebody, that might become something they might want to play at their wedding someday.
People get into rooms every day and write and talk about what they want to do and what kind of tune they want to do. It's very seldom that three, or however many, people can actually agree on what they want to do and even more seldom that they actually agree and then do it, and that it actually goes on and sees the light of day and actually does anything. So we happened to all be on that romantic wavelength that morning, and it worked out."
