  • "Sip it slow" is what you would do to savor a good drink - a high-quality shot of tequila, perhaps. In this song, Cold Ford uses the saying as a metaphor for showing down and enjoying life.

    Ford wrote the song as a message to his teenage son, Raymond.
  • Lee Brice sings the chorus on this track. Brice and Ford can be seen going Redneck Crazy in Tyler Farr's video.
  • Ford wrote this song with Shannon Houchins and Noah Gordon. Houchins is Ford's partner in Average Joes Entertainment, which is Ford's label.
