This song is about a woman who is with the wrong guy, or as Adkins puts it, "A hot rod running down a dead-end street."
Adkins used the song as the final number on his Live Country! DVD, where he explained: "This is about a little scene that I witnessed between a guy and a girl. I just thought I needed to lay down some words of wisdom coming from an old sage. After witnessing this, this is me talking to her."
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
