Eric Church Covering “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here & Drink” Sums It All Up Right About Now

Self-quarantine? Social distancing? Flattening the curve?

I got an idea…

“I think I’ll just stay here and drink.”

“I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink” was the second single from Merle Haggard’s 1980 album Back To The Barrooms. And while it has nothing to do with a global pandemic, it’s pretty much the mood right now… stay home and drink.

Last year, during the epic Double Down Tour, Eric Church hit fans with a cover of the Merle classic, and needless to say, he and the band blew the damn roof off.

It might as well be the motto right now…

Here’s the original.
