• Sam said the song was written after he got engaged to girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler in Israel late 2016. He said:
"I connect music to the emotions that come from relationships, so most of the songs that I write are inspired by
those circumstances, emotions, feelings, all that kind of stuff"
Sam said that this song helped "lighten up" what was shaping up to be a "heavy" sophomore album. He said:
"I've been writing songs over the past, I guess, year and a half, trying to conceptualize a new record and it kinda
started taking a heavy direction, and I sat down at one point and was like, 'OK, I'm gonna lighten this up
a little bit, it needs a lighter flair,' ["Body Like a Back Road"] sort of swings, and hopefully it's easy to
listen to and will put a smile on some folks' faces."
