On making the song, Fairchild said: "We didn't know it really, but with 'Day Drinking,' we had a
blast that day because we were drinking and writing songs. We left it alone, then a couple of weeks later,
Barry Dean and Troy Verges sent us a souped up work tape of what we had done. Then,
we thought this is very fun and very cool."
From the Album
• Jimi Westbrook said
"It makes me think about those summer days when all that's on the agenda is hanging out, relaxing, and having
a good time with friends. So, if that's your plan, here's your song! 'Why don’t we do a little day drinking?'"
• The whistling you hear in the chorus happened by accident, Karen Fairchild explained:
"I remember that we had come from the road,
because I remember being very hoarse, like really road weary voice-wise. So, when we were messing with melodies
on the chorus, I started singing something but I couldn’t hit it, so I whistled it."
