Morgan Evans is giving fans a glimpse inside his recent Hawaiian vacation with Kelsea Ballerini through his new music video for “Day Drunk.” The infectious summer jam has the singer crooning of spending his day with his beautiful bride as they shut the world out and sip some drinks by themselves.
The three-minute video was shot by Morgan and Kelsea during their romantic getaway in Hawaii. The adventurous side of the couple comes across throughout the clip as they can be seen surfing, swimming and exploring the island of Kauai on ATVs and in a helicopter.
“I’ve never been the drinking song guy, but this song came from a real place and is really more about spending a day with your person than it is about just going getting drunk,” Morgan tells Entertainment Tonight. “There’s a reason why I love it so much and feel like I can sing it.”
The video was filmed by the couple using a GoPro. Additional highlights include the newlyweds swimming beneath a waterfall and ring shopping after Morgan lost his wedding band while surfing. It wasn’t his real wedding band, though, and instead a cheap silicon band he bought from Amazon.
Morgan says the feel-good “Day Drunk” was inspired by one of Kelsea’s past birthdays. Unbeknownst to his bride, he had planned an elaborate celebration but she opted for a low-key night instead.
“She had come home from being on the road . . . and she was like, ‘Can we just shut the front door and maybe just open a bottle of champagne and start there?’ And that’s all we did and it ended up being an awesome day,” he recalls.
“Day Drunk” will be featured on Morgan’s forthcoming major-label debut, alongside current single “Kiss Somebody.” The singer is set to perform his latest single on The Bachelorette on Monday evening (July 2).
