Nineties favorite Clay Walker knows there are lots of reasons to drink — more now then ever, it seems.
People “Need a Bar Sometimes,” and his wistful new single captures that sentiment with a timeless, windblown charm. Meanwhile, a new lyric video goes shot-for-shot with the track’s easy-going hook.
Filmed on a bar top with the song’s lyrics going by on bottles, napkins and a full-size Jenga game, the clever clip helps listeners get acquainted with Walker’s newest release.
“We all need a bar sometimes / Lean back with a long neck on a neon night / Somewhere you can sip and unwind / Or hang out with the party crowd till closing time / You might be drowning her leaving / Or just here drinking / But we all need a bar sometimes,” goes the easy-going chorus.
“Need a Bar Sometimes” was written by the hit maker with George Birge, Jaron Boyer and Josh Mirenda, and marks his first release produced by new studio collaborator Michael Knox — who also produces Jason Aldean. Boyer co-produced the tune and Clay Walker debuted it on The Bobby Bones Show recently, talking new music and family life with his wife, Jessica.
