It is the 4th consecutive #1 NMW single for MTS Records.

“When Marshall Dane first came to me with ‘Alcohol Abuse,’ I knew that we had a hit record on our hands,” said Michael Stover of MTS. “It’s got a stand-out sound and amazing vocal delivery, matched with the memorable rapid-fire brand name chorus. It’s infectious and unique, at the same time. Great song, amazing performer! The fact that it is our 4th straight #1 NMW single is so humbling and gratifying. We’re also enjoying our first Music Row Top 70 (#68) with this song, too! So, thank you, to all of the radio stations playing the record, and especially to the fans, for requesting it.”

“Alcohol Abuse” is from Marshall’s latest album, One of These Days, released in May 2013. The song was written by Country Hall of Fame Songwriter Kim Williams (Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts) and Grammy Award Nominee, Billy Yates (Gary Allan, George Strait, Kenny Chesney.) In addition to Marshall Dane’s smooth-as-aged-whiskey vocal delivery, the track features Jeff Fountain (bass), Corey Thompson (drums), Mike Bonnell (keys), Dan Brodbeck (Guitar), Doug Johnson (steel) and Shane Guse (fiddle.)
