Would you believe that Johnnyswim originally wrote this song for a conference? Just three days before it was due, they started writing the song.
“We were in Nashville and we were kind of like, ‘what should we write about?'” says Sudano. “We met at a church in Nasvhille and this is the Bible Belt anyway. So we were kind of like, ‘let’s write an old school hymn.’ And we were actually talking to a friend of ours who was saying how all the great hymns actually came from drinking songs … So we thought it would be fun to write a drinking song hymn.”
