This song has been getting stuck in my head this week. I can’t remember where I first heard about it. Cole’s team may have reached out to CML suggesting that I check out the song and if they did I’m glad because this song is simple, but it’s really catchy and fun.
Let’s check it out again and see why this song has a chance to become a hit.
Take A Drink – Cole Taylor
It can’t be easy to write a drinking song. There have been so many of those over the history of country music that you would think it would be impossible to bring something new to the table.
Take A Drink does a great job of not trying to rock the world. It’s just a song that’s right there in the middle of the road where people like to hear good music and have a good time without taking life too seriously. The song is just about life and enjoying the simple things and enjoying a good drink once in a while.
There are a lot of people that want to live life that way. They don’t care about all the crazy things going on in the world. They just want to have a job that pays the bills with a little extra left over for a few drinks and a few good times with friends and family.
And that doesn’t sound half bad. I like this one because it’s got a catchy beat and I think it would fit in well at country radio.
What do you think?
