Miranda Lambert Shares ‘Smokin’ and Drinkin” Lyric Video
The song's lyrics -- "Smokin' and drinkin' on the weekend like we did back in the day /
Smokin' and drinkin' gets ya thinkin' about the one that got away / So here's to all those nights all we felt was like smokin' and drinkin'" -- flash across a smoky screen, while an occasional beer bottle or glass of whiskey shows up in homage to the tune's message.
“It really, really, really makes me want to smoke and drink,” Lambert says of the tune. “I don’t smoke. But I drink. A lot.
“I feel like this is my party song,” Lambert adds. “I want to party when I hear this song, in my own way. That’s why I connected to it. I just immediately was like, ‘Yes.’”
“[Little Big Town member Karen Fairchild] told me, ‘You have a song I want!,’” Lambert recalls. “So I said, ‘If I cut it, will y’all sing on it?’ This was at the CMT Awards, just joking around in the dressing room. But when I went in to record it, I thought, ‘If Little Big Town wants to sing on my record, we are damn sure taking advantage of it!’ I can’t even imagine what it would sound like without them.”
