Toby Keith wrote this song over the 2009 Christmas break. He discussed the cut on his website: "I absolutely loved the melody, but the idea is probably something I've said or heard and it stuck with me. I can't remember where or why, but I just thought it was funny to say, "Yeah, you're gone and I don't miss you too much, but I think about you all the time." Which is basically the same thing. He's willing to admit he heard she's in town with a handsome man, but says he didn't catch it all. He caught it second-hand. Well, of course it was second-hand if you heard it from somebody. There's a lot of that kind of doubling back in the song. I wrote one years ago that went, "We'd still be together, but she left me." Well, of course! Those kinds of things crack me up."
