Holiday

Album: Losing Sleep (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Young takes it slow with this feel-good smooth jam, which paints a picture of a romance that's like a break from real life:

    You make me want to make a margarita
    You make me want to put on my shades
    You take me on a trip around the world
    Don't need to hop a plane


    Young is telling his girl that she makes every day feel like a holiday.
  • Young co-wrote this fun song along with Cary Barlowe, Johnny Bulford and Corey Crowder. "We were in Florida so we were like 'Let's write something that's got a vacation vibe to it,'" he explained to Radio.com. "I think from the jump, having that line at the top of the chorus takes you there immediately –'You make me wanna make a margarita'–you could call it 'The Margarita Song.'"
