The steamy music video finds Underwood teaming up once again with frequent collaborator Randee St. Nicholas. Set in what appears to be a dimly lit jazz club, the clip features Underwood as a lounge singer who ends up locking eyes with a handsome man across the room. As she sings, they both begin to imagine themselves sharing a few cocktails with each other and getting quite cozy in a booth together.
“We should be drinking alone, together / Drowning the pain is better / With somebody else who got problems / We ain’t gonna solve ‘em / But misery loves company / Tonight all I need is a stranger / Lips with a whiskey chaser / And a corner booth kiss / To make me forget that he’s gone / We should be drinking alone /We should be drinking alone, together,” she croons throughout the chorus as she admires the gentleman in the bar.

The song, which marks Underwood’s fourth single from her Cry Pretty album, was co-written by Underwood alongside David Garcia and Brett James.
