“Your Love is the Drug” is a down-home, up-tempo track with southern flare. The song was written by band members Jason McCoy and Chris Byrne, as well as renowned producer Gavin Brown. As the first song on The Squeeze it effortlessly gets the party started with catchy lyrics and nostalgia-driven melodies. “Your Love is the Drug” takes listeners back with its classic country style and true Road Hammers sound.
“Your Love is the Drug was a lot of fun to bring to life,” says The Road Hammers front man Jason McCoy. “We all have that one person we can’t quit. This song lets us have a little fun reminiscing about the strong pull of love, with the added layer of good ol’ foot stomping music to get the crowd moving and singing along.”
The Road Hammers are enjoying the fruits of their labour in 2017. The group was recently nominated for a CCMA Award for Group of the Year. Bassist Chris Byrne is also nominated for Bass Player of the Year and Clayton Bellamy has been nominated for Songwriter of the Year (with Dan Davidson).
