Church talked about the album with CMT's Craig Shelburne about one of the track, "Country Music Jesus":
That song is interesting because of a particular critic, who shall remain nameless for now, who wrote an article. I got pulled into the article, and I had no business being in the article, about the state of country music. It was comparing the new generation, this young movement, to Cash and Waylon, and saying that we're not getting it done. And that we needed a country music Jesus to come and save the format.
And I took offense to it. I'm not interested in making music that was made in 1974. I want to make music that is different and that's being made now. I feel like Cash did that. I feel like Waylon did that. I feel like Garth did that. Good or bad, it doesn't matter. They did their own thing, and they did it different. They expanded the format. I think that's what we're supposed to do. That's what we're here to do. I took offense to his comment, and that was my missile across the bow as a tongue-in-cheek way to respond to that.
