Drink Myself Single

  • Lyrics
  • This is an old fashioned drinking country song, a genre which is normally the preserve of male singers. Sweeney told The Boot why she penned this boozy anthem. "I started playing bars in Austin and then all over Texas, then we moved to Louisiana and Oklahoma and New Mexico, then Arkansas and Alabama. That was the kind of music I was raised on... straight-up country and honky tonk music. That song is the epitome of that. A lot of people say that girls aren't supposed to drink or party, but I'm like, what? It's a girls' anthem, but guys love it too. Fans go crazy over that song. Even when I say the song title, people freak out."
