As reported by the Boot, in a press release, Rhett said about the song:

"We wrote this song about the people in life that we love, and always remembering them in their youth, no matter how much time passes and we all change."

He added, "There’s something sentimental about remembering your very best friends who have real jobs and families now tearing it up in college, or picturing me and my wife with no cares at the Tin Roof back in Knoxville."

Three months later, Rhett and Akins welcomed their second daughter, Ada James.

In July 2019, the Country superstar announced that he and Akins were expecting their third child, another girl.
