  • On his 2015 Live Country! DVD, Atkins told the story of this song: "You listen to the radio now and all these songs are party anthems: dropping the tailgate, building a bonfire, she's wearing her daisy dukes, I've got my ball cap on backwards, we're listening to the radio... sometimes you need a heartbreak song. I love a party and a truck as much as the next guy, but come on, she's gone, and tonight I need a heartbreak song."
