From the Album
• The song was inspired by Barrett's husband Cade Foehner and was intended to highlight positive relationships, in contrast to the type of story depicted in "I Hope". Lyrically, the song is a "nuanced ballad" that describes the type of man one would hope to marry.
• Billy Dukes of Taste of Country praised the songwriting of "The Good Ones", writing that its lyricists crafted "the sort of song 19-year-olds aren't supposed to be able to write yet," and added that the song "promises to make a greater impact than ["I Hope"]."
• "The Good Ones" has peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, becoming Barrett's second consecutive number one single on that chart. The song has also reached number 1 on the Country Airplay chart. As of October 2019, "The Good Ones" had sold 19,000 copies in the United States.
