In the exclusive Front and Center clip above, Bentley explains that he was dealing with a bit of writer's block before fellow writer Josh Kear suggested the title "Drunk on a Plane." That's when everything changed.
"I was like, 'We gotta write that song, man,' " Bentley recalls. "I do like having some drinks and I like planes, so it worked out pretty good."
As for Bentley's personal mile-high moments? He's staying mum. But one thing is for sure: He's enjoying the song.
"It's been a fun song to write and an even more fun song to watch the crowd sing on the road," he says. "The video was pretty fun too – so it's been a fun song."
