I Didn't Drink

Album: This Ole Boy (2012)
  • Craig Morgan penned this heartfelt song about a man getting drunk to dull the pain of a broken relationship with This Ole Boy co-producer Phil O'Donnell and Kyle Jacobs. He told Yahoo! Music: "I tried to imagine what it would be like if I didn't have my wife around. I'm not a big drinker - I don't drink much liquor or beer at all, I'm a wine drinker... glass or two at home. But I can imagine what it would be like if I lost someone who was close to me like that. I would go into a place... and I wouldn't know what to drink, but I'd want them to give me something."
