This song features Kid Rock and Dwight Yoakam on Background Vocals. Schmit told Billboard magazine that the guests on Expando represent "people that I really admire," most of whose phone numbers he already had, so "I didn't even have to go through management. Everybody came to my house, my studio, and sounded really, really great." In the case of Kid Rock, Schmit said: "I've bumped into him quite a lot the last couple years, and he gave me his phone number one day. We would see each other in restaurants. He invited my wife and I over to a couple of parties and get-togethers at his house. And one day I just said 'You know I'd love to have you sing on my record,' and he just drove over and did it. It was a lot of fun. Everybody I have on this record has been really great. They really were hard workers and they wanted to get it right, and it's not necessarily music that they were familiar with."
