Songfacts®:

  • This take on a male gold digger, like "Sweet" and "Hillbilly Rich" demonstrates Adkins' sense of humor. The country singer told CMT News why he likes to record such light-hearted songs. Said Adkins: "It's just fun stuff. You have to try to balance these records. I try to go deep on some, but you've got to do some that are just mindless - just stuff you can listen to and turn it up loud and drive fast and just have fun with it and smile and sing along and laugh. You've got to have that stuff."
