More about the song from Michael Alexander:
"This is a song that I wrote many years agoin 2004. It had more of a Rock feel. When working with yy producer Scott Wilson (of Saving Abel) on the SANDMAN record we decided to revisit the song and bring out more of the Southern Rock/Country feel that the song naturally has. While Scott himself played bass on the song and Phill Vilenski of the band Wayland played lead guitar on the track, both did a great job helping paint the picture of a Southern rock anthem, it was legendary Slide guitar player Steve Hinson who really solidified the Southern Rock/Country feel on the track. Steve has worked with almost everyone in Country from classic acts such as Dolly Parton and Randy Travis to more current acts like Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan. His slide guitar playing is incredible. It was Scott’s idea to bring him in on the track and it really ended up helping get across the exact feel I was looking for. This is a classic song of drinking too much whiskey and making bad decisions at bar time. It’s unfortunately a simple message that many people I feel can relate to. The 4am video was produced and directed by the very talented Marv Turner of Yellow Dog Production who has won several Telly’s and Emmy’s for his video work."
