There’s nowhere better to catch a glimpse of all different walks of life than plopping up at a pub and taking in the scenery. Brinley Addington captures that pastime in his track, “Better on a Barstool,” and admits to partaking in the hobby once in a while.
From the neon beer lights creating a dusky mood to the collection of folks that make their way up to buy some cold adult beverages, Addington wanted to capture the feeling of looking around at a bar to find a number of different situations surrounding him and yet enjoying the scene.
“It kind of a people-watching song and I’m a bit of a people watcher when I go places. And sometimes, I just like to sit and take everything in, and it’s kinda what this song is about. People walking in and buying shots, a bachelorette party walks in and friends are in the corner shooting pool. But it’s a fun song, even though it feels a little dark. It’s a fun one and it’s really fun to play live,” Addington explained of the song in a video breakdown.
Although Addington is new to the idea of being a country artist, his involvement in the industry includes a number of accomplishments, including co-writing Tyler Farr’s “I Should Go to Church Sometime.” He also has worked with a number of other collaborators like Ryan Hurd, Brent Anderson and many more.
Fans of Addington can listen to his EP, Songs From a Bar, at this time.
