Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell said of the song,

“It’s a look inside a band and touring as well as the journey you take to make it. We’re not bullshitting about anything, but you’re on the road and you miss your family. We all started doing this a while ago. None of us were married at the time. None of us had kids. Now it’s all different.”
