Eli Young Band singles chronology

"Drunk Last Night" is a song recorded by American country music group the Eli Young Band. It was released on July 1, 2013 as the first single from their fifth studio album, 10,000 Towns, their second for Republic Nashville.[1] The song was written by Josh Osborne and Laura Veltz.[2] The song's narrator describes the scenario of the previous night in which, due to various influences including alcohol consumption, he was compelled to initiate telephone contact with a former romantic interest. His ensuing conversation with her apparently fails to lead to a resolution, an outcome which he believes in retrospect should have been obvious. On one level, the narrator expresses regret that the interaction was distressing for both parties. On the other hand, the song's narrative may be perceived as having a redemptive tone as the narrator implies that, through these events, he was forced to recognize his inability to 'keep it all inside' with respect to this relationship.
