The sessions took place at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studios with additional recordings at Pedernales Studio in Austin, Texas and The Hit Factory Criteria in Miami, Florida.

The album includes covers of Vince Gill's "Whenever You Come Around", Gordie Sampson's "Songwriter" and a duet with Jamey Johnson of Billy Joe Shaver's "The Git Go". The video for the first single, "The Wall" was premiered on May 6, 2014 by Rolling Stone,while the single itself was made available for download on the same day.
