Mahalo, y’all! Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini are saying hello from the islands of Hawaii in the former’s new music video for his song, “Day Drunk.”

Filmed entirely by the Australian native himself, with some select clips shot by his bride, the videos showcases Evans’ love for the beach and adventure. Between swimming, touring in a helicopter and just driving around in a jeep, the video is a romantic romp through the islands.

“I’ve never been the drinking song guy, but this song came from a real place and is really more about spending a day with your person than it is about just going getting drunk,” Evans shared with ET. “There’s a reason why I love it so much and feel like I can sing it.”

Just when I think it couldn’t get any better …

His relationship with Ballerini has been a marital muse for Evans’ upcoming record. Between her “Unapologetically Tour” and his “10 In 10 Tour,” the two have been hustling long-distance nonstop, but they always make each other their priority. That trust and ability to put each other first contributed to his soon-to-be-announced U.S. debut record.

“There’s definitely a couple of really special love songs to me,” Evans teased during a recent chat with Sounds Like Nashville.

While rest and relaxation was just beachy, the singer/songwriter has been hard at work, climbing the country radio charts with his debut single, “Kiss Somebody.” The feel-good track sits within the Top 10 at country radio and has accumulated more than 41 million on-demand streams to date.
