The title comes from one of the cuts on the album, “Good at Starting Fires.” “It actually reminded me of a 2008 version of ‘Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On,’ the old Mel McDaniel song,” says Blake. “I just thought it was a throwback to the music I grew up on.” Another tune, “Bare Skin Rug,” was written by Blake and girlfriend Miranda Lambert. The song was written while they were hanging out around a fire pit at Blake’s house in Oklahoma and recorded around a campfire.  Miranda also lends her vocals to the song.
