Kelsea Ballerini not only co-stars in Morgan Evans’ new video for “Day Drunk,” but she also helped him shoot it. The country couple captured the footage themselves on a recent getaway on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
“I’ve never been the ‘drinking song’ guy,” Morgan tells Entertainment Tonight, “but this song came from a real place and is really more about spending a day with your person than it is about just going getting drunk. There’s a reason why I love it so much and feel like I can sing it.”
A large part of that reason is that it was inspired by Morgan’s wife.
“[Kelsea] had come home from being on the road and I had this elaborate day planned out for [her] birthday,” he explains. “She got home and I was like, ‘Oh, are you ready? Let’s do all these things.’”
He continues: “And she was like, ‘Can we just shut the front door and maybe just open a bottle of champagne and start there?’ And that’s all we did and it ended up being an awesome day.”
You can check out the video for “Day Drunk” on YouTube now. It’ll be included on Morgan’s full-length debut album, which is expected in the fall, alongside his top-ten hit, “Kiss Somebody.”
