It's not what you think, but Justin Moore's mother inspired "Why We Drink"

It's not what you think, but Justin Moore's mother inspired "Why We Drink"

The Valory Music Co. What could be more country than a drinking song inspired by your mama?

That’s exactly the case with Justin Moore’s new track, “Why We Drink.” But the Arkansas native would be quick to point out the idea came from something his mom said at dinner — not something she did.

“I ordered a drink, and then I ordered three, four more,” Justin tells Access. “And my mom goes, ‘Why do you drink so much?’”

“And I go, ‘Hell, I don’t know why I drink so much!’” he recalls. “I like drinking. If my team wins, I drink to celebrate. If my team loses, I drink ’cause I’m bummed out. If a certain song comes on, I drink.”

“So I had this idea to write a song called ‘Why We Drink,’” he explains. “So, in a roundabout way, my mom gave me the idea.”

“Why We Drink” will be available to stream or download at midnight ET, or you can sample it now via Access.

It’s one of the tracks from Justin’s new album, Late Nights and Longnecks, which comes out July 26. Its lead single, “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home,” is currently in country’s top ten.
