Lee Brice Debuts ‘Drinking Class’ Lyric Video
Lee Brice has released the lyric video for his new single, 'Drinking Class.' The tune, which is the second single from his upcoming 'I Don't Dance' album, pays tribute to working men and women all over the country.
Including lyrics like "We're up when the rooster crows / Clock in when the whistle blows / Eight hours ticking slow / And then tomorrow we'll do it all over again ... I belong to the drinking class / Monday through Friday, man we bust our backs / If you're one of us, raise your glass / I belong to the drinking class," the song is a sharp departure from the record's first single, the album's title track. But while the singer-songwriter tried to make the subject matter of the tunes for the upcoming project diverse, he also tried to make the songs sonically different as well.
”One thing I tried to do on this record is a lot of classic sounds,” Brice explains. “I love putting classic steel guitar with a classic banjo -- all those sounds meshed with new sounds I created in my head.”
Brice didn't write 'Drinking Class,' but he did produce the song, along with every other track for the new record.
“I wanted to have control over every drumbeat, every lick,” he explains to Country Weekly. “It was a lot of really sitting down and thinking about every little piece that goes into a song.”
