Luke Laird, Barry Dean and Natalie Hemby wrote the song in December 2012. "We did this little week-long in town writers retreat," Laird recalled to Roughstock
. "We're going to try and do it every year where Barry, Natalie and I got together, and just write for four or five days. For this particular song, I had this track pretty much mapped out with the guitar riffs and all that. Natalie had a title, 'Drinks After Work.' That wasn't the first thing I thought of when I heard this music, but Natalie's instinct is usually right. Barry is so good with lyrics and everything. It's just kind of the perfect combo."
