Wilson co-wrote the song with Trannie Anderson and Paul Sikes. She told Country Now and other outlets the song harkens back to her childhood growing up in rural Louisiana:

This one definitely shows that western side, it takes me back to my childhood. It takes me back to my roots…I come from a long line of hardheaded tough people and people who have kind of blazed their own trails. I’m from five generations of farmers in northeast Louisiana, and I always compare farming to the music business. I mean, you get up every day, do the same thing, you have good years, you have bad years, but you just keep on blazing that trail. So I think it’s just kind of digging a little deeper into my story.”

Wilson delivered a fiery performance of “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” during the 2023 CMA Awards. Later that night, Wilson was named the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year.
