Brandy Clark told Rolling Stone Country
this isn't a drinking song, but instead celebrates the way a little social lubricant can unite Americans. "We wanted to write it sort of like a modern-day 'Piano Man
.' It's like, 'When we're in here drinking, who cares what we are outside of this?,'" she said.
"When we finished the song [in 2012], we said, 'This would we be so great for Toby Keith.' And then he passed on it," Clark added. "Then he came back around to make another record, and the guy at my publishing company pitched it again — after the record was done — and they heard it and said, 'Oh, he's got to go in and do this.'"
