“It just is country, and country music makes me happy,” he previously shared of the track. “No matter how rock or edgy or scorned you can get, when you come back to a country song with a steel guitar, it like makes my soul feel like it’s on fire. It’s just my roots, it’s what I loved the most about the music that I grew up on, and that’s why I love making that kind of music. I mean, it’s stone cold country with a Texas flair for sure.”
