Written with Chase McGill and Matt Dragstrem, the song is painted with warming sentiments that take you right back to that happy place – grandma’s house.
The song opens up with Wallen saying, “Sorry y’all, my mamas called me. I’ll be right back,” and then his grandma proceeds, ‘“What’s up Morgan?”
He sings, “It was always hotter than the grease she used to fry that chicken / Smelled like Marlboro Reds and all that butter from her biscuits / And that Lincoln in the driveway, circa 1982 / Was on the shiny side of rusty and on the paler side of blue / ‘Cussin and complainin’ weren’t allowed in Mamaw’s house.”
Rhett follows up, “She’d ask if I was hungry every thirty seconds / And say things like ‘hellfire,’ ‘tarnation’ and ‘I reckon’s’ / It’s where I spent my summers and she put me to work / Shellin’ peas and shuckin’ corn until my fingers hurt / No tellin’ who I’d have been with.”
