Sound Off: Is Carly Pearce’s ‘Hide the Wine’ a Hit? [Listen]
Carly Pearce made history earlier this year when she became the only solo female in 2017 with a country debut single to be certified gold. "Every Little Thing" is her first No. 1 single, and with it Pearce boldly introduced herself to the country genre via a heartbreaking ballad about loss.
Now, Pearce returns with her follow-up single, "Hide the Wine." The catchy earworm showcases her bluesy and fun side as the Kentucky native sings of a chance meeting with an ex who's back in town. While she knows better than to let her guard down, she sings of how she "better hide the wine."
"I know me and I know you / I better get rid of all the Two Buck Chuck / And the high dollar good stuff too / ‘Cause, baby, if I don’t, then you know what we’ll do, yeah / One sip, one tip, we’ll be sittin’ on the couch / You’ll be kickin’ off your shoes," she croons.
Written by Ashley Gorley, Luke Laird, and Hillary Lindsey, "Hide the Wine" is an infectious song that embodies an all-too-real tale of needing to hide the alcohol before an ex comes to visit as to not lose one's inhibitions with their former flame.
Did you know? Carly Pearce convinced her parents to let her leave school when she was 16 to work at Dolly Parton's theme park, Dollywood, where she served as a performer for several years before moving to Nashville.
Carly Pearce's "Hide the Wine" Lyrics:
I heard you were back in town / Well, it’s been a hot minute / Since me and you were hangin’ out / Yeah, we had that crazy kind of chemistry / Where you get burned, don’t learn, don’t care / Just reach for another match and gasoline, yeah
Knock, knock, hear ya comin’, knockin’ on my door / But you’re gonna have to wait on the porch
Better hide the wine and get it gone / I better hide every one of them records that turn me on
(Lock ‘em up, lock ‘em up) / Turn up the lights and kill the mood / Because, baby, I just don’t trust myself with you / I better hide the wine
I know me and I know you / I better get rid of all the Two Buck Chuck / And the high dollar good stuff too / ‘Cause, baby, if I don’t, then you know what we’ll do, yeah / One sip, one tip, we’ll be sittin’ on the couch / You’ll be kickin’ off your shoes
I better hide the wine, yeah
Knock, knock, hear ya comin’, knockin’ on my door / But you’re gonna have to wait another minute on the porch / Oh no, no, it’s a dangerous thing / Pourin’ alcohol on an old flame
I better hide the wine, yeah / I better hide it / I better hide the wine
