Carrie Underwood has just announced her latest single — and it’s sure to be another hit.
Underwood’s sultry ballad “Drinking Alone” is the fourth single off her 2018 album Cry Pretty, nominated for Album of the Year at the 53rd annual CMA Awards.
“Drinking Alone” follows the massive success of her infectious summer anthem “Southbound”, which became her 27th career No. 1 single.
Written by Underwood, David Garcia, and Brett James, the song sees the country queen croon about pouring whiskey to numb a heartache: “Tonight all I need is a stranger / Lips with a whiskey chaser / And a corner booth kiss / To make me forget that he’s gone / We should be drinking alone.”
“Drinking Alone” joins already-released singles “Love Wins” and “Cry Pretty”.
Underwood will be wrapping up her hugely successful “Cry Pretty 360” tour October 31, and will return to host the 53rd annual CMA Awards on November 13 with special guests Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton.
“Drinking Alone” is available for download now.
