Love Story was recorded mostly in Nashville with producers Eminem, Malay, WillPower and DJ Paul.

Yelawolf released his independent debut album, Creek Water, in 2005, followed by an EP and four mixtapes, the last of which, Trunk Muzik, landed him his deal, with Interscope Records re-releasing it as Trunk Muzik 0-60 in November 2010.
