Canaan Smith Enlists Clever Wordplay In His New Track “Pour Decisions”
Round Here Records flagship artist and platinum hitmaker, Canaan Smith released his newest track “Pour Decisions” last Friday. In the song, written by Smith, Corey Crowder, Ernest Smith, and Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley, Smith remarks all the bad decisions he has made because of drinking.
“She ain’t gonna call / Baby’s long-gone / Ain’t nobody tellin’ me I’m doin’ somethin’ wrong / I’ll just sit right here drinkin’ beer, reminiscin’ / And proudly make a couple more pour decisions”
“Pour”, spelled incorrectly on purpose, is word-play for all the alcohol-influenced choices the protagonist in the song has made that caused him to be in the shape he is in now. Pouring himself too many drinks started a lot of fights with his girlfriend which led her to make a good decision and walk out on him.
Although it sounds sad, the track is very upbeat as the man does not seem to care about the whole situation and would rather be fishing with a beer in hand anyway. This drinking tune follows Smith’s “Life Ain’t Fair”; a love song about how lucky he is to have his wife, Christy. The two are expecting their first child next month. He sings: “If I got what I deserved / I guarantee that I’d have nothing / Close to good as you for sure.” “Pour Decisions” is more like his previous two releases in “Beer Drinkin’ Weather” and “Country Boy Things”, as they are all feel-good, party vibes. He performed these three songs during his set on Florida Georgia Line’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour this past summer.
“We wrote ‘Pour Decisions’ down at Brian Kelley’s house in Grayton Beach, Florida,” Smith said in a recent press release. “It was a total blast — we even celebrated with a beach party after we finished it. Hope people have as good of a time listening to it as we did writin’ it.”
Smith will continue to reveal more of what he calls “Canaan Country” in the new year. Keep up with Smith by following him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
