When I’ve Been Drinkin’-Jon Pardi (Capitol)

“Yes, it’s the fault of the alcohol. That’s what it is, baby.” And he’s so very cute layin’ out that old excuse, it makes us mostly overlook the fact that whoever’s on the other end of the line better drop this guy like a hot potato. He’s no keeper. I like the song much because of the little syncopation thing he does here reminds me of and old fave of mine from long ago.
