It’s no secret that Carmichael has one of the most pure country vocals in all of mainstream country music, and comes from a long line of country music talent as he’s the nephew of country music icons John Michael Montgomery and Eddie Montgomery, the front man of Montgomery Gentry.
Back in 2021, the up-and-coming powerhouse released his sophomore album, Son of A, filled with rowdy drinkin’ songs and also heartfelt ballads like the title track (which was one of the best singles at country radio in years).
And now Dillon’s gearing up for his next album, dropping a honky tonk heater today called “Drinkin’ Problems.”
Produced by Jon Pardi and Ryan Gore, and written by Luke Combs, Thomas Archer, Ray Fulcher, and Erik Dylan, the song has some massive star power behind it – with Dillon even joking while introducing the song at CMA Fest that he was going to “name drop like a son of a gun.”
And this one’s the perfect summer anthem. We’re at the point in the year where it’s all about long days and nights, and having a good time with friends and family, whether it’s in the backyard, at a bar, or on the water, and this is the ideal song to crank up when you’re kicking off your weekend.
The song is all about how everybody tends to have a little too much fun every now and then, but at the end of the day, it ain’t a bad problem to have.
The chorus speaks for itself:
“We all got drinkin’ problems It’s ’bout that time we get to workin’ on ’em We’ll be cold can holdin’ Keep that jukebox rollin’ Ordering rounds till we think we forgot ’em Unless you got a better way to solve ’em We’ll keep on drowning our drinkin’ problems”
