Written by Ross Copperman, Tony Martin and Mark Nesler, “Lay Low” has Turner singing of escaping the predictable day-to-day life to slow things down, get out of town and just lay low. He told Rolling Stone Country that when he first heard the track he was transported to his cabin in South Carolina where he can do just that.
“[The song] painted a mental picture of our cabin and how secluded it is,” he said. “It’s where we go to get away from it all and reconnect with each other, to be reminded of what’s most important. Laying low is something Jennifer and I love to do. We most always have to make the time to do it, because as you can imagine, we don’t just have ample amounts of idle time.”
