Keith wrote this trucker song with his frequent collaborator, Nashville singer-songwriter Bobby Pinson. Said Keith: "Never have written a trucker song before, but for years I've been telling Bobby we were going to write one. We started one time and ended up with the song 'Pump Jack' about the oilfields, knowing there wouldn't be more than a handful of people who would even know what that is. We wrote it from our past, both of us being from that area, and we never got around to writing the trucker song. Now we've come around to it again. When we tore into it, I told him, 'Man, truck driving songs make me think about 'Six Days On The Road
,' Dave Dudley and those kinds of things.' We'd just made a modern version of a Wild West song with 'Bullets In The Gun' and I wanted to do that in a trucker song. We really got it driving and grinding. It's busy, clever and the lines hit hard and fast. Another one of those songs you hope will get heard on the radio even if it's not the most obvious single."
