Following the release of lead single "Perfect Illusion" on September 9, 2016, Lady Gaga announced the Dive Bar Tour (2016), a promotional concert series where the singer will perform at various dive bars in the United States. The campaign will be sponsored by Bud Light, and the first appearance on October 5 will be live streamed on Bud Light's Facebook page. On October 2, 2016, several publications claimed that during the first show of the tour, a new song titled "Million Reasons" would be performed, in addition to "Perfect Illusion". The venues for the concert series will be remained disclosed to fulfill a more intimate approach.
The singer spoke regarding her inspiration for the single:
"Million Reasons" is a country song mixed with funk and rock 'n' roll. You would never imagine it would sound that way… the feeling underneath the record is it’s almost got like a little bit of a hip-hop feeling. But at the same time, it’s not a hip-hop song. It’s kind of like I just had no boundaries making music — and neither do any of the other people we were working with. It was kind of like what feels right, what hits the best, what’s going to get everybody in their stomach and their heart.
