Chris Janson penned this song with "Buy Me a Boat
" co-writer Chris DuBois and Ashley Gorley. The teetotal singer explained to Nash Country Daily
why he chose to pen a libation-themed tune.
"You grow a big Civil War beard and you learn how to mix a cool drink. If I could grow a beard like that, believe me, I'd be a mixologist, 100 percent," he said. "I can fix a drink, and my drink of choice is a cold can of Mountain Dew, but I can fix all kinds of drinks. I've done it for years. And then when the song idea for 'Fix a Drink' came together, it felt like a no-brainer. It just works. You can be drinking a Hi-C or a Jack and Coke and it doesn't matter. It's a fun, feel-good song for the summer."
