In February of 2014, Miranda Lambert released "Automatic" as the lead single from her fifth studio album, Platinum. Written by Lambert, Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby, the nostalgic tune gave Lambert her highest-debuting single at that time (it debuted at No. 26 on the Billboard charts). "Automatic" also earned a host of awards nods, including ACM Single of the Year, CMA Song of the Year and Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance at the Grammys, and won Song of the Year at the ACMs and Single of the Year at the CMAs.

Below, Hemby recalls to The Boot how "Automatic" came to be.

"Automatic" was actually a title ... You know, any time I would write with Miranda, because I would only see her for a few days, I would always be like, "Oh my gosh, I'm gonna stockpile ideas and get ready" because I'd only have a few moments with her ...

Nicolle Galyon and I, we were going to be writing with her, and she was like, "I've gotta call it "Automatic,"" and I was like, "Ah, that's a really cool title!" We kind of came up with just a tad bit of a melody, but, as usual, Miranda is great about jumping in on a song and, lyrically, just totally going for it and throwing out all the great lines.

We were writing in her condo in downtown Nashville that day, and we were just being kind of nostalgic about stuff, but really we started talking about her old truck ... I had never driven a stick shift, so I had no idea what she was talking about, but we were talking about that, and we were talking about all kind of stuff -- how you used to have to have a map before you could go anywhere. So we started writing from this perspective ...

When we were up for an ACM, I didn't think we were gonna win, and Nicolle had just had her second child, and she had to stay in Nashville. I was up in the nosebleeds at the ACMs, and they called our name, and I was like, "Oh, crap!" I had to wind my way down ...
