Luke Bryan Drinks Away Lost Love in “Drink a Little Whiskey Down”

Luke Bryan’s new song, “Drink A Little Whiskey Down” is available now, March 5th, on all streaming platforms. Written by Bryan, Matt Dragstrem, and Josh Thompson, the song takes you on a journey of love lost and drowning those sorrows in the bottle.

When it comes to moving on from his lost love, Luke Bryan wants us to know he’s doing just fine. He’s moving on, and he’s getting over her, but every now and then, he falls back into old habits on his new song, “Drink A Little Whiskey Down.”

The melancholy moving-on-mixed-with-mourning track tells the tale of Bryan twisting off the cap every now and then, having “just enough to get you gone.” In general, he’s back to his old habits, like hanging with his friends and doing just fine. He’s “come a long way getting over us,” but sometimes he finds himself wondering if she misses him.

“It don’t happen like it used to happen/ When it does, I twist off the cap/ And drink a little whiskey down.”

Bryan wants her to know he’s doing just okay without her, but he’ll admit to himself and everyone listening that he may slip up every now and then.

“I don’t need your touch/ Need your smile/ Except for every once in a while.”

Co-written by Bryan with Matt Dragstem, and Josh Thompson, the track is one of six new songs on the deluxe re-release of Bryan’s 2020 album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here. “We all know 2020 was hard on all levels for many,” Bryan revealed in a statement. “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.”

Meanwhile, Bryan has been keeping busy, appearing on the new season of American Idol on ABC and celebrating his latest #1 this week with “Down To One,” his 26th career chart-topper. It remains to be seen if “Drink A Little Whiskey Down” will be his 27th, but on the strength of the song and Bryan’s star-power, it seems very likely.
