Jon Stone and Kristy Thomas, the duo American Young, recently released their latest single “Wasn’t Gonna Drink Tonight.” The song, which was written by Jon along with Lee Brice and Billy Montana, can be found on the duo's self titled EP released in June.
Don’t be misled by the title, the song isn’t an ode to drinking and having a good time. Quite the contrary, it is a love song about going out and unintentionally seeing the person who didn’t just break your heart, but “tore it all to pieces,” causing certain emotions to take over and leading one to drink a bit too much (even though that wasn't the initial plan for the evening).
"I wasn't gonna drink tonight
I didn’t wanna see your eyes
Just here for a good time
No I wasn’t gonna want a fight
Butstin' up my knuckles on my truck
No I, I wasn’t gonna drink tonight"
Jon takes lead vocals on the track, but emotions are best conveyed when the duo harmonizes, specifically in the chorus and the bridge.
