Chesney relates the feeling of the song "You And Tequila" to driving on the Pacific Coast Highway. "I've always loved the song and I've lived with the demo for a long time. After the tour in 2007, I rented a house in Malibu right on the cliff of the ocean. I would drive up the Pacific Coast Highway at sunset. It was a great way to brush off the road dust from a year of touring. I remember I'd roll down the windows and I would just listen to music. I would listen to Tom Petty, the Eagles, songs that would kind of fit that moment. And when I heard "You And Tequila," then somebody brought it up to me about doing that song, I listened to it and that's where I went. I went back to driving up the Pacific Coast Highway at sunset, and that's why I recorded the song. And even now that the record is done, when I listen to the song I go straight to driving up the Pacific Coast Highway at sunset."
