The track was released as the second single from Adkins' first album for Wheelhouse Records "'Lit' was a song that just came along as we were in the process of recording this album," Adkins explained to Radio.com
. "I didn't expect it to be a single, but Benny Brown, the president of the label [Wheelhouse], got all lit up about it, and he wanted to put it out as a single, so that's what we're doing. It's just a fun song. Don't look for the deep, profound thing, there's nothing deep or profound about this."
