Why We Drink was written by Justin Moore, David Lee Murphy, Casey Beathard, and Jeremy Stover.
“My wife and I had gone to dinner maybe a year or two before all of this. We were at a Chili’s or Fridays or something real fancy like that. And so we were there with my parents, and I had ordered two or three beers before our food got there. And my mom goes, Why do you drink so much? And I said, I don’t know, I just like it. Mind you, she was drinking a margarita at the time.
Well, after that dinner, I was down in Destin, Florida with David Lee Murphy, Casey Beathard and Jeremy Stover. And I had this idea and the title, and I told the story about my mom to the guys. Then Murphy goes, Cause it’s Friday. Cause it’s Monday. Then we all just started kind of joking around about all these things. And we just kind of threw out every cliché reason we could think of for a few minutes. We literally were standing in my pool drinking beer it was that simple.”
Justin Moore filmed the video for Why We Drink with friends and family at his home in Poyen, Arkansas.
