Chris Janson told the story of the song to Roughstock
: "I double booked the write with LoCash Cowboys and Danny Myrick. I had the appointment with Danny on the books and then LoCash called and said 'we're free tomorrow, wanna write?' And I said, 'Sure, but I'm also writing with Danny, so can we all do it together?' They already knew Danny so they said, 'Sure' and we got all together and decided to work together and when I pulled up in my truck, Preston came up to me and said, 'Man I love your truck!'
I said the alternative to 'Truck Yeah' as you can imagine and he stopped me there and said, 'No, no, no man, truck yeah!' and I was like 'Done!' (meaning that it felt like a song ideal). So we sat there and I started doing this boot stompin' melody on the guitar and Preston and Chris (Lucas) broke out their laptops and started out writing stuff and Danny came up with the initial intro lick and I started rapping off words like 'Little Wayne pumping on my iPod' and everybody started filling in words from there and it was absolutely everybody's idea at the same time, it was really cool."
