Liz Rose co-wrote the song with Curb Records artist Lee Brice. According to Rose, the idea for the song came after the two began talking about how "females[…] have our crazy moments". Of the opening stanza, Rose said, "I know I've had those relationships on both sides, where you wanted to tell somebody[…]'Why don't you just chill? I'm not going anywhere!" Brice added that the song's melody "just took us to a place. It was kind of a sensitive kind of song, but it still had this edge to it that was really cool." He also thought that Rose was "good" at writing with a new artist such as him.[1] Bassist Jon Jones said of the song, "Any time you find one that's written a little differently, that's good."[2]

Critical reception

Kyle Ward of Roughstock gave the song four stars out of five, praising the "particularly good" melody and the "effectively charming" lyrics, although he thought that it would have been better with a third verse.[3] Ben Foster of Country Universe gave the song a C grade, saying that the narrator's attitude sounds "plain disrespectful of the woman's feelings." He goes on to say that "beyond the chorus, the verses are innocuous enough, but there’s just nothing here to overcome the fact that the song’s hook falls spectacularly flat."[4]

Music video

The music video was directed by Brian Lazzaro and premiered in March 2011. A live music video was directed by Mason Dixon. The music video features a man and a woman, presumably a couple. The man rescues the woman from a psychiatric hospital. As they are about to leave the hospital, the video cuts to a guard behind them with his hands on his hips. Finally, this man, part of the Eli Young Band, wakes up on the tour bus with his girlfriend curled up beside him.
