When He Comes Back to Town, Better Hide The Wine!

Carly Pearce & Ellen Tailor at 100.7 The Wolf's Hometown Throwdown

The argument about women in today’s country music format is not a new topic of discussion and it won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Are women being overlooked for less talented men? Should female artists be played alongside men even if their product is sub-par? This can go a million different ways and with the world being at odds over everything these days, we won’t be debating it here. What will happen is nothing but a little love for a song that’s piqued my interest and hopefully it catches your attention, too.

Carly Pearce recently went to #1 with her single “Every Little Thing,” and working in radio, I’ve heard it roughly 230 million times. (Ok, so I exaggerate but you get it.) Maybe I’m jaded. Maybe I’m hard to please. Maybe I expect more from female artists being a woman myself. Regardless, when I heard, “Hide the Wine,” I was immediately taken back to that moment every woman has gone through at least once (and only once if you’re lucky but yeah right.)

“Hide The Wine”

I heard you were back in town
It’s been a hot minute since me and you were hanging 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 Well knock knock, here you come a knockin’ on my door
But you’re gonna have to wait on the porch

Better hide the wine
And get it gone
Oh I better hide every one of them records that turn me on (lock ‘um up, lock ‘um up)
Turn up the lights
And kill the mood
Oh ’cause baby I just don’t trust myself with you
I better hide the wine

Well 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, you know what we’ll do
Oh oh with one sip, one tip, we’ll be sitting on the couch, you’ll be kicking off your shoes

Better hide the wine
And get it gone
Oh I better hide every one of them records that turn me on (lock ‘um up, lock ‘um up)
Turn up the lights
And kill the mood
Oh ’cause baby I just don’t trust myself with you
I better hide the wine

Oh I better hide the wine, yeah

Oh knock knock here you come a knockin’ on my door
But you’re gonna have to wait another minute on the porch
Oh no, no, it’s a dangerous thing pouring alcohol on an old flame

Hide the wine
And get it gone
Oh I better hide every one of them records that turn me on (lock ‘um up, lock ‘um up)
Turn up the lights
And kill the mood
Oh ’cause baby I just don’t trust myself with you
I better hide the wine
Oh I better hide the wine, yeah
Oh I better hide the wine
