Keith penned this song with his longtime collaborator Bobby Pinson. He recalled: "That's me and Bobby on a bus run. We started spitting those lyrics out - if I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna need that - and just kept finding those over a couple days. We kind of worked the verse one day, then went and did something else and came back. I had another one and he had another one and we put them together, then we rhymed them and took it in the studio."
