Lee Brice's follow-up to "I Don't Dance" is poised to show us, once again, just how much of a regular guy he is. "Drinking Class" is a track about getting up early, working hard, and enjoying your free time with your woman. But this mid-tempo cut doesn't scream party anthem or tailgate tune the way you might think. This "Drinking Class" is an anthem for the middle-America every-man. Someone once told me that, to write well, you must write what you know. I believe this translates in to the delivery of an art form as well, and I completely buy it from Lee Brice. Not every artist could pull off lyrics like, "We're up when the rooster crows / Clock in when the whistle blows / Eight hours ticking slow / And then tomorrow we'll do it all over again / I'm a member of a blue collar crowd / They can never, nah they can't keep us down / If you gotta, gotta label me, label me proud / I belong to the drinking class / Monday through Friday, man we bust our backs / If you're one of us, raise your glass / I belong to the drinking class" with complete believability. Lee Brice has the uncanny ability to relate to the listeners. I feel like he's one of us, and so will your listeners. Give this track a shot in your drive times and see if it doesn't resonate with the "Drinking Class" of your audience. Impacting: NOW!
