Wallace and her band took to the studio in July to record the single, which is a ballad set in the southwest that tells the tale of a woman whose fate finds her at the bottom of a steep canyon. Swirling harmonies and tribal-like rhythms enhance the imagery in the song co-written by Wallace and Dallas songwriter Andrew Delaney. Kirsten Proffit of LA-based California Country Records and Steve Berns at Fitting Room Studios in Los Angeles produced the song. The song features Tom Bremer on guitar, Jeremy Long on pedal steel, Austin Callender on bass and Josh Huppert on drums.

 "I wrote this song with a great songwriter friend of mine in Dallas named Andrew Delaney,” said Wallace. “He had mentioned to me that he’d always wanted to write a song about yodeling in a canyon, but he had never known a singer who could sing the yodels. So we started brainstorming ideas about yodeling in a canyon - namely, why would one be yodeling in a canyon? The story we came up with is a dark one, and for the yodeling section, I wanted to bring attention to how much a yodel can sound like the yips and cries of a coyote. After spending so much time touring the southwest the past few years, it has become familiar territory and it was so much fun to create a song with that brings to life that atmosphere of the rural southwest. “
