Taylor this song her freshman year of high school. She dating Drew at the time who also inspired "Our Song". "The idea for this song came to me in math class. I just started singing to myself `When you think Tim McGraw.' The concept for this song hit me, because I was dating a guy who moved away, and it was going to be over for us. So I started thinking of things that I knew would remind him of me. I knew we were going to break up so I started thinking of all the things that I knew would remind him of me. Surprisingly, the first thing that came to mind was that my favorite country artist is Tim McGraw. After school, I went downtown, sat down at the piano, and wrote this with Liz Rose in fifteen minutes. It may be the best fifteen minutes I've ever experienced."


Her favorite Tim McGraw song at the time was"Can't Tell Me Nothin" from his album "Live Like You Were Dying". It is capitalized in the liner notes.

  1. His name was actually Drew Dunlap. She's refered to him as being named Drew (not to mention the fact that she never mentioned him being named Brandon, has a bracelet that says Drew from her first boyfriend and I've seen a picture of her with his parents) and no one named Brandon Borello was going to her school at the time. In fact the only one who comes up when you google it is some guy from California whereas when you look up Drew you can see that everything from their school to their friends to the year he graduated matches up. So I'm not really sure where so many books and articles got that name from. ~ Alyssa
