Demo of the Week: “Drinks Fly By” (Cole Taylor, Jamie Paulin)

Demo of the Week

WritersCole Taylor, Jamie Paulin

Vibe: Party-ready and tailored for tailgates with an extra touch of sweet nostalgia

Key lyrics: “When it’s a cold can, at your best friend’s wedding / Or with your old man, at a ball game sittin’ in the cheap seats, sippin’ something too high priced / Can’t slow it down even if you tried.

Could be a good fit for: Florida Georgia Line, Dustin Lynch, Muscadine Bloodline

X factor: The rocking production is layered on top of creative metaphors (“Every sip’s like sand in the glass that you wanna tip back and rewind”) that combine to make a twangy ode to the classic “Time flies when you’re having fun” idiom.
