“I feel like this song kind of basically speaks to my female fan base,” says Josh to Nash Country Daily. “I feel like for my female fans, there’s definitely bits and pieces of it that they can just kind of pick and choose from. It’s like, ‘Oh, that’s me’ or ‘Oh, this is me’ or whatever. I’m seeing that every night that I play it. The girls just love it. For the guys, I think that’s the kind of girl that they’re looking for—or they already have one or at least they hope they do. I love the message of the song and the melody is so catchy.”
