Gill explained how the song describes his relationship with his wife, Christian singer Amy Grant
, "in a sense." He said: "I like songs with tempo to have a bit of wit to them. There are certain songs that are well-suited for lots of guitar playing. With those kinds of songs, I just want a great feel so I can play a lot. It's the same thing with the feel of this song. But it's funny because it's all about this guy who is a nightlife kind of wild child. It's about me and Amy, in a sense. It says, 'Well, I was living the life of a guitar slinger/Womens and wine and whiskey for dinner/Oh, I knew I was in trouble the first time I seen her/ I went and married that contemporary Christian singer.' To me, it's very, very funny. She heard it and just shook her head and said, 'You'll say anything.'"
