Miley wrote "Inspired" with Hillary in mind. In an interview with Billboard in April 2017, Miley called the track "my Hillary Clinton song." "I wrote it actually maybe a week before I went and campaigned for her, and she sent me a letter about it," she exaplined. "Cause I sent it to her the day after the election, I said, 'I wrote this song for you, and the reason I thought you would like it is because I always imagined you with your dad, when I wrote about me and my dad playing in the creek.' Because, you remember when at all the debates she would bring up her dad? Her dad obviously played a very impactful part in her life, and my dad played one in mine."
