Wasn't That Drunk

Album: Front Row Seat (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The Front Row Seat tells the tale of Josh Abbot's relationship with his ex-wife from the first meeting to the break up. This song featuring lyrics about a drunken kiss finds their love story taking off.
  • This features as guest vocalist Nashville singer-songwriter Carly Pearce, who has opened for the Josh Abbott Band. "The minute I got it, I listened to it like six times in a row and I thought 'This is it, this is a smash. We just gotta get the right girl on it,'" Abbott told Rolling Stone.
  • The song was originally on hold for Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town. "It sounds like our band," Abbot said. "But it's got just enough pop elements to make radio happy, and it's got just enough touch - fiddle and all that - to make our fans happy."
