Houser told Billboard that he wrote the song a few years ago and “grew up around the rodeo and around a bunch of cowboys. I always noticed that cowboys traveled. One of my favorite movies of all time was ‘Red Headed Stranger’ and all those old Clint Eastwood movies. You always see the cowboy going home and resting and trying to plant the fields, and make things easier at home. I kind of felt that musicians these days are a lot like an old cowboy. We go out and try to make our living. There’s that picture of someone who has to go out and travel for a living, and comes home to their family, and making it work. That’s what it means to me.”
