Gracin, who currently resides in Nashville where the single was recorded. “Whether it’s the nine to five grind, taking care of the family, cramming for finals, or being a musician on the road – everyone can relate to having a few days off and to let loose. That’s what it’s about, letting loose.”
“Drink It Gone” is the first single off Josh’s upcoming EP due out this fall. The Drink It Gone Summer Tour has Josh crisscrossing the country, performing at clubs, concert venues and county fairs for his legions of devoted fans, affectionately known as “Gracin Nation.” “Drink It Gone” is also Gracin’s first song released since signing with his new label, Private Label Studios.
