One More Drinking Song

Album: Judge Jerrod and the Hung Jury (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Kansas-born Jerrod Niemann is an American country artist who has been active since 2001. Jamey Johnson and Garth Brooks are amongst the artists who have cut his songs. This is his first single released through Brad Paisley's record label, Sea Gayle.
  • On the face of it this is a lighthearted ditty about drinking songs, however Niemann explained to the Michigan radio station B93 he's also trying to get a point across: "Everybody in Nashville sits around and tries to figure out what all the people you play music for would like or dislike and really none of us know," he said. "If anybody has any ideas, it's the people who are going out at night or playing honky tonks. I had already been given a lot of flack for having so many drinking songs, that I went back and wrote a song called 'One More Drinking Song.' The reason everybody tries to avoid them in Nashville is because they think that anybody besides guys will like it and I just thought that was ridiculous. I was just mocking our system in town of how everybody thinks they know everything about everybody's brain... and they don't."
