Jason Eady – Wishful Drinking

Country music is not dead…. it’s alive and well in Jason Eady’s soul. The latest addition to his nightly setlist is a true country song about drinking and the memory of a woman. And let’s be honest, the first thought that should pop in your head when you read that last sentence should be “Can there really be any more good songs about drinking… haven’t they all been written?”

Well.. I would have thought so until I heard this one. The song title alone begs you to wonder.. Is this another cheesy drinking song? But, two verses in and you already know there’s something powerful to this song. Take a listen and see for yourself… I think you’ll agree that this one could have been penned by one of the greats.

    This is hands down one of my most favorite songs. Ever.

    To me, one of the measures of a GREAT song is that the first time you hear it, it’s feels like an old song you already know by heart, if that makes sense.

    This song definitely has that quality – It sounds like something Haggard could’ve recorded thirty years ago – and that ain’t a bad thing!!
