Since Chris Janson dropped his newest single off Everybody, “Drunk Girl,” earlier this year, it’s received high praise for delivering a message of “doing the right thing.” Especially considering it released during the stream of sexual misconduct allegations coming to light.

Janson told CMT:

“‘Drunk Girl’ is just all about doing the right thing. Sometimes people forget. The bottom line is humans have to take care of humans no matter who you are or where you’re at. Good information is good information whether it be for a guy or a girl. It doesn’t matter the sex of the human. If you do the right thing, the right thing will always happen.”

Being a father himself, he said that he wrote the song from a parent’s perspective. He’s humbled by the response that the song has received and hopes that the message continues to inspire kindness and respect:

“I’m not a big drinker, so I don’t miss a whole lot at all. I’m probably one of the only artists you’ll ever come across who is extremely cognizant of everything that’s going on in the room all the time. If I ever see anyone in the audience being inappropriate be it a man or a woman, I don’t stand for that.

“I don’t like to take away from the artistry and the music because that’s No. 1. But the bottom line is, you have to take care of lives and all lives matter no matter what world we’re in. I’ve stopped shows a lot of times for EpiPens, heart attacks and things that happen. But you’ve got to be as cognizant as you can, and you hope that the crew around you has the same awareness.”
