I recently found myself standing in line at my local supermarket, at 9pm on a Wednesday, buying groceries for one. Every year a certain percentage of people plug too many Christmas tree lights into a single electrical socket and don’t water their trees enough, causing them to dry out. Why don’t we do a little day drinking. If any artist were appropriate for country drinking song choice it would most definitely be this one! It serves as a constant reminder to beleaguered fans that misery loves company…and booze.—Michael Chen, Cough medicine plus Sprite, plus Jolly Ranchers. Anything can become a habit. Because they implied that all men are in some way complicit in rape (and somehow have the power to stop it), simply because the act is committed by some men. Country music is what fuels our passion at the Grizzly Rose. Hats off. And a corner booth kiss to make me forget that he’s gone A toast to our interns, who chided us for overlooking this my-first-reggaetón chillaxer from 2010. You’re all I got, take care of me. Somewhere in Vegas, a swimming pool literally filled with vodka is being planned.—Brent DiCrescenzo, While we’re decked out in our Hawaiian shirts and Bermuda shorts, scarfing down "cheeseburgers in paradise" at a Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant in Key West, allow us to pause and tip our straw hats to the lyrical brilliance of Buffett’s 1977 classic. I love alcohol—love it, man. But this one hits close to home as Runaway June just recently played live at the Grizzly Rose in February 2020. One of the reasons I’m so fond of booze is simply that, pragmatically speaking, it makes life easier for me. It’s my kind of place. Even though it was written by Johnny Bush, the song belongs to Willie, as essential to him as long braids and a bandanna.—Brent DiCrescenzo, Originally penned in 1950 for a theater revue, “Lilac Wine” has been covered by such greats as Eartha Kitt, Jeff Buckley and, er, Miley Cyrus. We love a good girl power song any day! Each bore the message: You hold in your hands the power to stop rape. Imagine if this sort of specious prohibitionist reasoning were applied to other areas of life. There’s something about Merle Haggard’s voice that just pairs well with alcohol. What about cars? This is the stuff of contemporary adult life and it frequently strays into head-throbbingly stress-inducing I-want-to-punch-walls-or-fucking-kill-somebody territory. Of course, not everyone agrees.

And they say friends are better than the Internet.—Brent DiCrescenzo. And if you haven’t uttered these words before, we’d be hard-pressed to believe you. They look at the most extreme anomalies on the fringes of whatever behavior they’re in favor of curtailing, posit those extreme anomalies as the norm, and then insist that they constitute a threat to society as a whole. These lyrics are on point with a great night at a bar. And in case you’ve forgotten, before Blake Shelton was a top judge on the Voice, he was a wild country card depicting wild drinking nights. Prohibitionists are also wont to present problems as being of an all-or-nothing variety, wherein the only way to address a given issue is to either unilaterally embrace their proposed solution or simply accept that there is no other reasonable option, which is rarely the case. Which is absurd and patently insulting to roughly half the population. Definitely sing along to this old-time classic by one of the greats! You never know what’ll happen when you’re loaded out of your gourd, and in the disenchanting, spirit-crushing, punch-clock world we’ve managed to fashion for ourselves, that’s an invaluable quality to say the least.

Frankly, I’m not sure where to file this gem from 2006. After a brief uproar, the holders were removed by order of the university’s administration. People wouldn’t be able to just get drunk or high and then avoid dealing with all the fucked up shit that goes on in the world— they’d have to face all the ugliness and actually solve problems like poverty, racism, sexism, inequality and war. Taken from Gillian Welch’s exquisite, bleak 1998 album, Hell Among the Yearlings, “Whiskey Girl” falls into the latter category—and how.—Sophie Harris, Yes, ostensibly it’s a love song, but c’mon, Beyoncé was likely deep in her cups last year when she blurted the non sequitur hashtag “Surfbordt!” Ditto for Jay Z, who could not have been sober when he wrote, “Your breastesses is my breakfast.” I think he stole that from Bukowski?—Brent DiCrescenzo, If this booze-soaked R&B ode to former flames sounds like something that the Weeknd should be singing, that's just because Abel Tesfaye actually wrote it.
