The song is a list that "celebrates quintessential ideas of love". In the verses, Owen "speak-sings" in a manner that The Boot compared to Shawn Mullins' "Lullaby",[3] while the "anthemic chorus" features steel guitar and a "drum-heavy arrangement".[4]

Owen told Nash Country Weekly magazine that "“I think my fans have come to expect a certain kind of music from me; songs that are fun, energetic and just make you feel good. ‘American Country Love Song’ has the feeling of freedom and being young and adventurous...The single is a broad-spectrum glance in a three-minute song that describes a couple of kids living that American country love song...ut, it’s also a much larger celebration of the love story that is America itself, from cowboys and cowgirls to cheerleaders and quarterbacks in small towns and big cities."[5]
