Songfacts®:

  • This song is about life on the road, mentioning several places a country singer might play on any given night (Pascagoula, Baton Rouge...). Introducing the song on his 2015 Live Country! DVD, Adkins says, "It's always a privilege to get in front of country music fans. Thank you for allowing me to do this. This is a song about what we do. We got the best job in the world: we travel around this country, we see all these beautiful cities, all these beautiful people. That's what this song talks about."
  • Craig Wiseman wrote this song with Peter Kvint. Wiseman is one of the most accomplished songwriters in Nashville, but Kvint isn't a name you typically see attached to a country song - the Swedish writer has written songs for Andreas Johnson and The Ark, and has also done production work for Britney Spears.
