Chesney says that "This is a fun song. It’s every little girl’s fairy tale – and for some, it even does come true. But it’s not all happily ever after. That line, ‘All her old neighbors swear they're certain she slept her way to the top / But she knows you don’t get where you’re going unless you got something they ain’t got…,’ I love that because it shows you that you can make it in spite of other people refusing to believe in your dream."
Chesney and Taylor Swift performed the song together twice. The first time was on Swift's Speak Now World Tour during the Nashville, Tennessee show on September 17, 2011, and on Chesney's The Big Revival Tour during the Nashville, Tennessee show on March 26, 2015; the performance was included on his second live album Live in No Shoes Nation (2017).
