Hangover Tonight

Album: Yet To Be Titled (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Gary Allan's tenth studio album, the singer co-wrote the track with Chris Stapleton, Jesse Frasure and Carey Barlowe. He considers the feel of the song to be a bit of a throwback to his youth. "I feel like I've pushed myself into a very comfortable place for myself, because it's kind of '50s and '60s Motown," Allan said. "I was in rockabilly bands my whole life, and to me, it was just a throwback to my youth writing with these guys."
