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,” 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. Going into 2020, his “Devil You Know” single spent twelve weeks at the #5 spot."

Wishful Drinkin’ is the third record release for Fish, who has built a loyal following for his good-time, traditional honky-tonk sound. “This new record shows more diversity in the band than any of our previous records,” Fish said. “We recorded our first waltz and duet called "Every Damn Time” and included an Outlaw Country-sounding ode to Willie Nelson called “High Rollin’ Home” that I wrote with Curtis Grimes and Rick Garoutte.”

“I’ve been so incredibly fortunate to get the opportunity to work with the people that we had on this record,” Fish said. “From the songwriters, to the musicians, to the production team, to the photographers, we had an all-star team that made an incredible product and we can’t wait for people to hear it.”
