I caught this new one on Wild Country on Spotify. It’s been standing out on that playlist. It’s kind of a good mix of new and traditional country. The story in the song is definitely rooted in the old drinking songs of country, but this one has a new sound to it that’s pretty cool.
Let’s listen to this one and get another feel for it.
Drinking About You – Haley & Michaels
So the situation going on in this song is that two people that had been together are apart. We’re not entirely sure what happened, but we can guess that they have broken up. We’re not sure of the reasons, but now they’re both kind of thinking that maybe they should be together.
And they’re kind of fighting those feelings. They’re drinking and trying to forget the feelings they have for each other. So there must be a reason that they’re apart and they know that they shouldn’t and can’t go back. So the drinks are the answer.
The song has a cool dynamic. You obviously have both the male and female perspective on things. That’s been more common in country the last few years, but it’s still pretty cool in this kind of song.
I don’t know what the promotional force is behind this song, but it seems like something that could go on to be a hit if it had a little major label support. We’ll have to see if that works. It’s already on Wild Country.
What are your thoughts on this one?
