Hur Alan Jackson och hans basist Roger fick idén till låten beskriver han själv i upptakten av musikvideon:

«I wanna tell you a little story about an incident that happened on the road a couple years ago when me and my band, The Strayhorns, were playing this little truck stop lounge up in  Doswell, Virginia, a place called Geraldine‘s. We’d been there for four or five nights, you know, playing those dance sets. It’d been a long night, I took a break and walked over to the Jukebox. Roger, my bass player, was already over there reading the records, you know. I leaned up on the corner of it and one of the legs was broken off, jukebox kind of wobbling around, you know. And Roger looked up at me and said…».

Don’t rock the jukebox
I want to hear some Jones
‘Cause my heart ain’t ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don’t feel like rockin’
Since my baby’s gone
So don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

Before you drop that quarter
Keep one thing in mind
You got a heart-broke hillbilly
Standing here in line
I’ve been down and lonely
Ever since she left
Before you punch that number
Could I make one request

Don’t rock the jukebox
I want to hear some Jones
‘Cause my heart ain’t ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don’t feel like rockin’
Since my baby’s gone
So don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

I ain’t got nothin’
Against rock and roll
But when your heart’s been broken
You need a song that’s slow
There ain’t nothin’ like a steel guitar
To drown a memory
Before you spend your money baby
Play a song for me

Don’t rock the jukebox
I want to hear some Jones
‘Cause my heart ain’t ready
For the Rolling Stones
I don’t feel like rockin’
Since my baby’s gone
So don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song

Yeah, don’t rock the jukebox
Play me a country song.

Låten skrevs med tanke på att det var barägaren som förlorat sin käresta och vill höra George Jones och countrymusik. I Musikvideon är det Alan Jackson som står framför Jukeboxen och det kommer (i Amerika) kända TV-personligheter och artister fram till Jukeboxen.
