Cledus T. Judd parodied the song as "My Cellmate Thinks I'm Sexy" on his 2000 album Just Another Day in Parodies. This parody referenced Chesney's and Tim McGraw's June 2000 arrests after stealing a Mounted Reserve deputy's horse.[7] Released as a single late that year, Judd's parody reached number 61 on the country charts.

On Chesney's 2004 song "When the Sun Goes Down", guest vocalist Uncle Kracker sings the line "She thinks Kracker's sexy".
