Caitlin Quisenberry releases an emotional Country tune, entitled, “The Drill”

Caitlin Quisenberry is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter from Denver, Colorado. Not too long ago, she released an emotional Country tune, entitled, “The Drill.”

Caitlin Quisenberry – “The Drill” single

“I know the drill, I know what comes next. Here come the late nights, the cheap wine, and Kleenex. It won’t work out later and we won’t stay friends. Even if you promise we will, I know the drill. I know the drill, I know what comes next. Some picture of you with a new girl and I’ll wish you the best. We won’t work out later and we won’t stay friends, even if you promise we will. And you can swear up and down that we will, but I know the drill.” – lyrics

‘The Drill’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who shares a fading relationship with her significant other. Apparently, he hasn’t been calling her phone much, and that bothers her a lot. One day, she feels something is drastically wrong when he walks into her bedroom with a worried look on his face. Instead of dragging things out, she feels it would be best for him to lay everything down on the table because she knows what’s about to happen next. She agrees, no need to sugarcoat it, the proof is already in the pudding. Therefore, she tells her soon-to-be-ex that he doesn’t need to tell her, “You know, I’ll always love you and this is only a break. We’ll get back together.”

“We’ve all had our share of breakups. We can sense when it’s coming but want to ignore the signs until it’s upon us and we are hearing those all too familiar words. The words are meant for our benefit, to let us down easily, and help lessen the guilt of the one breaking up. But there is no easy way. Even the kindest words still cut like a knife. You know it’s not you, it’s me. I’ll always love you and it’s only a break. It might work out later, we’ll still be friends. What I love about this song is as heartbreaking as it is, it’s also empowering because I’m saying, ‘Save your breath, your words are like a broken record. I’ll say it for you ‘cause I know the drill.’ This song is so relatable. No matter which side of a breakup you’ve been on, you feel the pain. And ‘The Drill’ lets you know you aren’t alone in your heartache.” – Caitlin Quisenberry explained

‘The Drill’ contains a relationship-on-the-verge-of-breaking-up narrative and ear-pleasing-vocals that will resonate well with fans of Maggie Baugh, Hannah May Allison, and Halle Kearns. The gloomy tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation bursting with a warm contemporary Country vibration. Furthermore, “The Drill” follows hot on the heels of Caitlin Quisenberry’s previously released single, entitled, “I Always Wanted To,” a Cody Johnson cover.

“From the second you said you had something to say, I knew it wasn’t gonna be, ‘You look pretty today.”
