Country music artist Chris Janson's "Drunk Girl" has shipped to country radio and deserves a listen. Watch his live performance of the song here!

Country music singer-songwriter Chris Janson’s thoughtful track “Drunk Girl” highlights an important topic— respecting women in every situation.

“Both of my co-writers are legendary,” Janson shared with Nash Country Daily about Tom Douglas and Scooter Carusoe. “They certainly didn’t need me in the room. I can tell you that the song basically wrote itself. We were just stewards of the ship. And I say that in regard to, sometimes songs happen like that. You can’t really twist and turn ’em. If you try, you mess ’em up. If you let them lead, they lead. We wrote ‘Drunk Girl’ from a father’s perspective. We are all dads. I would hope after hearing the lyrics, if my daughter was in that situation, I hope someone would take care of her. Being a husband, being a dad of girls, I have such a great respect for women in general. I think this song needed to be said.”

“Drunk Girl” arrived at country radio on Tuesday with nearly 60 stations already hooked by the single’s timely and reflective message, making him the most-added male artist on the charts this week.

“Thanks to everyone for the outpouring of positive love,” said Janson in a statement. “From the stories you’ve shared with me in person to the emails to the comments on social media – it’s incredible. ‘Drunk Girl’ is a very special song.”

“Drunk Girl” Lyrics 

Couple of cover charge stamps got her hand looking like a rainbow
In and out of every bar on a whim just like the wind blows
She’s either a bachelorette or coming off a breakup
Take a drunk girl home

She’s bouncing like a pinball
Singing every word she never knew
Dancing with her eyes closed like she’s the only one in the room
Her hairs a perfect mess, falling out of that dress
Take a drunk girl home

Take a drunk girl home
Let her sleep all alone
Leave her keys on the counter your number by her phone
Pick up her life she threw on the floor
Leave the hall lights on walk out and lock the door
That’s how she knows the difference between a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

You leave her drive for a dive
You get something bad to eat
They’re singing closing time at that little bar across the street
Then two by two strangers and lovers headed for the covers hooking up
That TV in your two bedroom sounds turned off
Through the paper thin walls you can hear the neighbor’s cigarette cough
There’s a million things you could be doing, but there’s one thing you’re damn sure glad you did

Take a drunk girl home
Let her sleep all alone
Leave her keys on the counter your number by the phone
Pick up her life she threw on the floor
Leave the hall lights on walk out and lock the door
That’s how you know the difference in a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

Took a drunk girl home
In the sober light of dawn
She left you a message she thanked you on the phone
Cause you picked up her life she threw on the floor
You left the hall lights on walked out and locked the door
That’s how she knows the difference between a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

You took a drunk girl home
Take a drunk girl home

This should be required listening, hands down. Share this tune with other country music fans!
