Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single released by Tyler Farr since signing to Jason Aldean's Night Train Records label. Aldean also produced the track. The pair are good buddies; in fact, they are so close that Aldean even appeared as a groomsman at Farr's 2016 wedding.
  • Written by Nashville songwriting veterans Ben Hayslip, Deric Ruttan and Josh Thompson, the song is an anthem of small-town love.

    When she climbs inside, slides up tight
    Says, "Baby, I ain't nothin' but yours tonight"
    I'm like the only wheels rollin', the only party goin'
    The only neon glowin'


    The girl treats her date in such a special way, he feels like he's "the only truck in town."
  • Jason Aldean sent the song to Tyler Farr and the singer immediately fell in fell in love with it. He explained to The Boot that he recognized it as the leadoff single he'd been looking for after being gone from the radio for a few years. "It was simple, yet unique, yet had a little bit of an edge, but nothing crazy," he said. "Different enough, but safe enough for radio to play it. But also, to me, where it's not selling out. It's Tyler Farr-approved."
