Paisley said that he had been intending to record a song with Urban for a long time and it was a wonderful thing to finally get the chance to work with him:
“When I called him I said I had a couple ideas for what we could do. One of them was just go write a real fast guitar instrumental and try to blow people’s minds. The other was this song about starting a band that was pitched for my last record that I didn’t cut. I told him the words to ‘Start A Band’ and sent it to him. He cracked up when he heard it because we’ve both been through this so much in our lives, just our attempts to be cool as guitar players you know, and wanting to fit in.”
