On his Live Country! DVD, recorded on August 1, 2014 at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, Adkins said this was his "new favorite old song." Telling the story behind it, he said: "In 1992 I moved to Nashville, Tennessee. I'd been living in Dallas, playing honky-tonks out there in Texas. Fast forward to 1994, and I'm trying to get a record deal with Capitol Records. The guy says, 'Is there a girl in Texas?' I said, 'Hell yeah there's a girl in Texas. There's a bunch of girls.' He said, 'Write me a song about it.'"
With that in mind, Adkins came up with this song about leaving Texas - and in many ways his identity - behind. He knows that no matter what happens, there's a girl back in Texas who gets him.
