Lance’s Story

Lance Woolie’s story


Lance Woolie (former lead singer of Hogleg Band) launched his solo career with his debut single “Too Drunk” depicting the true determination of a avid drinker. This song features legendary guitarist Brent Mason plucking along with Lance and his group of stellar mucisians.

“Too Drunk” is a rambunctious country anthem that celebrates the high spirits and unabashed revelry of game day and good times. With its foot-stomping rhythm and catchy chorus, the song perfectly captures the defiant joy of someone who lives life on their own terms. The lyrics humorously explore the idea of being just the right amount of tipsy to enjoy life’s pleasures—from watching football and fishing to making love and listening to country music—while playfully acknowledging the limits of intoxication
