During an interview, Taylor talked about how he came up with the song Middle Child. He said,

“At that time, my daughter was like, ‘You have to have a song for me!’ I was like, ‘Well, I don’t know. You’re the middle child and you’re acting like a middle child right now, seeking attention and approval,”

He further added,

“Which I understand because Shane’s always in trouble and the baby daughter Everleigh is cute as f**k, so you’re in the middle. But you’re like my twin, too. She really is. So I thought, ‘Why don’t I just call the song Middle Child?”
