Justin Timberlake releases ‘Drink You Away’ as next single

On the heels of a stellar CMA Awards performance with Chris Stapleton last week, Sony Music/RCA Records is proud to announce that Justin Timberlake’s next single is “Drink You Away.”

From the album The 20/20 Experience Pt. 2, the single has now been officially released to country radio with an official impact date of November 23rd.

Timberlake joined Stapleton for the CMA’s most talked about moment in 2015 when the pair performed Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” and Timberlake’s “Drink You Away” last Wednesday night in Nashville. The crowd at the Bridgestone Arena and the crowd at home were in awe of the breathtaking eight minute performance. The same night, Stapleton went three for three when he took home trophies for Male Vocalist, New Artist and Album of the Year awards.

“About last night… I’ve been friends with Chris Stapleton and his lovely wife Morgane for a couple of years now, but sometimes you meet people and feel like you’ve known them your whole life,” Timberlake posted to social media following the show. “He is one of THE MOST gifted musicians, songwriters, and vocalists I’ve ever met. So stoked to share this moment with him and watch him put the WHOLE WORLD on notice. So happy for brother. Chalk one up for the good guys.”
