'Back To Drinkin’ Whiskey' is out now!
Multiple award-winning Canadian country artist, Tyler Joe Miller returns to old vices after a heartbreak on his latest single, Back To Drinkin Whiskey.
Co-penned with Kelly Archer and Danick Dupelle, Back To Drinkin Whiskey ultimately sees Miller trading love for the bottle and a pounding heart for a pounding head.
“Back To Drinkin' Whiskey isn't your average drinking song; this is a love song gone wrong,” Miller says. “It's a story about how the right person can make you feel so whole that you don't need any vices to keep your heart occupied, but once that love leaves you in the dust, you tend to go back to old habits and what doesn't let you down. For this person, that's a top shelf bottle to drown the hurt of losing that love.”
The accompanying music video, which premieres today exclusively on Countrytown, was directed by Ryan Nolan, a Canadian who lives in Nashville where the video was shot.
Miller says, “It was really great to shoot the music video for Back To Drinkin’ Whiskey in Nashville and be able to bring the song to life visually. It was the first time I’ve adopted the main character role, so it was a new experience to fully immerse myself in the story.
"This video takes you through flashbacks, highlighting a relationship that was strong and displays the parallel of when that love is lost, and the whiskey is stronger.”

In 2020, the Surrey, British Columbia born artist released his debut six-track EP, Sometimes I Don’t, But Sometimes I Do, featuring the tracks Fighting and Sometimes I Do.

Continuing with this momentum throughout 2022, Miller released Never Met a Beer, a collaboration with fellow rising country star Matt Lang which marked his sixth consecutive Top 10 single at Canadian country radio.
