Luke Bryan croons over lost love in his just-released new song, “Drink A Little Whiskey Down.”
The somber track finds the superstar confessing that the memory of his ex only haunts him every now and then. While he admits he’s doing well, “except for every little once in a while,” Bryan shares that he finds himself turning to the whiskey bottle when memories of their relationship come flooding back.
“I drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down/ When the wonderin’ if you miss me missin’ you comes around/ Yeah, it don’t happen like it used to happen/ But when it does, I twist off a cap and/ Drink a little whiskey, drink a little whiskey down,” the Georgia native sings on the chorus.
Bryan co-wrote “Drink A Little Whiskey Down” alongside Matt Dragstrem and Josh Thompson. The heartbreak song is slated to appear on his upcoming Born Here Live Here Die Here (Deluxe Edition) album, which will be released on April 9.
The project includes the album’s original 10 tracks as well as six brand new songs.
“We all know 2020 was hard on all levels for many,” Bryan previously acknowledged. “Things were put on hold in the entertainment business, but it did allow more time to make music and I’m excited to share these six new songs.”
Last month, Bryan gave fans a taste of new music with the release of “Country Does,” a song that celebrates the small-town way of life.
The release of “Drink A Little Whiskey Down” comes just days after Bryan celebrated his 26th No.1 single with “Down To One.”
