We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
In 2017, Chris Janson was working on his second album Everybody. The project’s first single was “Fix A Drink” which peaked just shy of number one on the chart. Although the song arrived later in the making of the album, according to Chris, it helped give the project a sense of direction.
Now, Chris wrote “Fix A Drink” with his producer Chris DuBois and songwriter Ashley Gorley. Chris said, “Everyone thinks I don’t drink, but I do if I like what’s in the cup. I might have a sip or two of my wife’s drink and even order my own. Everything in moderation.”
As far as the song’s message, he felt it was exactly something he would say: I can’t fix the weather or the news but the one thing I can do is fix a drink!
