John Driskell Hopkins Releases New Song “I Hate to See Good Whiskey Go to Waste”
- American singer-songwriter John Driskell Hopkins of Zac Brown Band released a new song “I Hate to See Good Whiskey Go to Waste” on January 15, 2021.
The song is taken from his upcoming fifth studio album “Lonesome High”, following “Missing You All, All The Time”.
John Driskell Hopkins explained of the song, “The title is something that my friend (and veteran Music Row songwriter) Jerry Salley came up with. We went round and round with different angles on how to bring that title to life, and ultimately were drawn towards whiskey's ability to “numb an old heartache”. The jury is still out on whether or not this method is actually effective.”
He continued, “I love the way this song is stripped down to just the vocal in sections. It really conveys the personal nature of the heartache.”
The new album is set to be released on February 19, 2021. The album comprises of 9-track, featuring guest appearances from Emily Saliers and Coy Bowles.
