Pop Culture exclusively premiered a first listen to “Drink Drank Drunk,” writing, “With songs like ‘Make Em Wanna Change,’ ‘Burnin’ Roses,’ and ‘Ruled the World,’ Sanders is giving his fans a mesh between the old-school country with a modern twist. However, his latest single ‘Drink Drank Drunk’ may be the catchiest of them all (Victoria Moghaddami).”
“One morning I woke up and I just had this little, ‘I had a drink that I drank when I drank that drink, the drink I drank made me drunk.’ And I was like, well, I have no idea what that is, but that’s a tongue twister. My thought is, if you can sing it, you’re not drunk enough. Keep singing it. Keep drinking,” Sanders shared in the Zoom interview with Pop Culture. Fans can also look forward to a video for “Drink Drank Drunk,” starring Sanders, his guitar and a wakeboard, dropping soon.
Sanders, who recently signed a co-publishing deal with Round Hill Music Nashville, wrote “Drink Drank Drunk” with Tyler Chambers, Jordan Rager and Jacob Rice, who also produced the track. “Drink Drank Drunk” follows Sanders’ 2020 releases: “the mid-tempo, retro-cool song (Taste of Country),” “Make Em Wanna Change,” and “the infectious tune (Billboard),” “Ruled the World,” which featured his fellow singer-songwriters Hunter Phelps, Ray Fulcher, Cash Campbell, Faren Rachels, Josh Mirenda, Mitch Rossell and Drew Parker. The video, starring Tracy Lawrence, Aaron Tippin, Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire, has received over 1.4 million views.
The Lake City, Fla. native moved to Nashville in 2009 where he worked construction to pay the bills while developing his chops as a songwriter. Sanders earned his first No. 1 hit in 2015 with Cole Swindell’s “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” which was quickly followed by another No. 1 with Dustin Lynch’s “Hell of a Night.” After learning how to craft a song that was right in the pocket for country radio, Sanders embarked on his artist career. As an independent artist, he has sold over 70,000 singles, scored over 90 million total streams and charted at No. 33 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart with his self-titled, debut EP.
