Drew Fish Elated By Duet With Country Star Pam Tillis On New Wishful Drinkin’

AUSTIN, TEXAS — When it was suggested to Country Singer Drew Fish that he reach out to Country Star Pam Tillis to sing a duet on his new album, Wishful Drinkin’ (Release date: Feb. 7), he tried to control his excitement about the possibility. 

The song, “Every Damn Time” is the new single from the album (available everywhere Jan. 17) and was written by Fish with noted songwriters Roger Brown and Chris Colston.

“When I had mentioned that I wanted to get a duet on the next record, Roger threw out the “Every Damn Time” idea and we rolled with it,” Fish recalls. “We had been brain storming about who we thought would be a good fit for the female part and Roger suggested Pam. 

“It was one of those moments where I didn’t want to get excited because I didn’t think that it would actually happen, but I couldn’t stop myself from getting giddy,” he continues. “When we reached out, she got back immediately and said something along the lines of ‘I’m a sucker for a good waltz.’ 

“Pam has had a career that has been influential in country music,” says Fish. “One of my favorites, ‘Maybe It Was Memphis,’ was a song that I grew up listening to on the radio and still hear it in rotation.

“Pam is an incredible artist and person,” he continued. “She went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was happy with the record. I really enjoyed working with her on this song.

”The Drew Fish Band’s third record, Wishful Drinkin,’ is a terrific blend of honky-tonk country. Fish takes his cues from country’s hard-core and ‘50s dance halls and ballroom influences–from Webb Pierce to Bob Wills–at a time when most newcomers are as apt to cite pop and rock heroes as the old cornerstones.

Meanwhile, the Drew Fish Band’s live show has definitely earned it’s good-time, beer drinking reputation over the years. It’s easy to understand why after seeing his music videos full of up-beat, party anthems or experiencing the band’s high-energy show for yourself. 

In 2019, his single, “Better Place,” topped the regional radio charts, while the video garnered more than 200,000 views on YouTube. In all, his music videos have amassed more than two million views. His previous single, “Flood,” also topped the charts. Just before Christmas 2019, his “Devil You Know” single spent five weeks at the #5 spot.
