Tebey, who has also written pop tunes for the likes of Cher, Pixie Lott, and One Direction, found a home as a singer in country music, starting with his 2003 single "We Shook Hands (Man to Man)." But this track finds him embracing his identity as a country singer in a new way.
"I think 'What Was I Drinking' is more country than I've ever done before. But the actual album is going to be a little bit of everything, kinda like my previous albums have been," he told Six Shooter Country
in 2022. "I just try to write great songs and I let my songwriting lead me down a specific path when I write. Wherever my songwriting takes me is where I end up. From what I've seen so far, a lot of it is going to be a little more country than what people are used to but I think that's fun!"
