Lee Brice Joins Forces with Nate Smith + Hailey Whitters on New Single

Lee Brice joins forces with Nate Smith and Hailey White’s with new single, “Drinkin’ Buddies,” out now, April 26th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

Summer is just around the corner and Lee Brice just released the perfect song for the season. Featuring Nate Smith and Hailey Whitters, “Drinkin’ Buddies” is a great celebration of friendship. The threesome are the perfect country music pairing!

Written by Zach Kale, Chris Destefano, and Justin Wilson, the track starts off with what some people consider one of the greatest sounds, the sound of a can being cracked open. Continuing with an upbeat vibe, Lee Brice starts out the song with his distinct vocals while Nate Smith comes in for verse two. Brice and Smith come together seamlessly for the chorus before welcoming Hailey Whitters into the mix. As they all join in for the second go around on the chorus, the blending of their voices make it seem as if they have teamed up before.

The message of the song is no matter what your friends will always be there for you. Whether you had a tough day at work, morning a breakup or just need a fun night out you can always depend on your drinking buddies.

“Thank god for drinkin’ buddies // They can make a bad day better // Yea their drinkin’ buddies // You know we tip em all back together”

“Drinkin’ Buddies” is certainly a song that you will want to crank up and we can’t wait to do it all summer long. It follows Brice’s first release of 2024, “Checking In.” We’re excited to see what’s next for the the iconic country star.
