It's hard to let someone you love go, but sometimes, they're "Better Off Gone" ... which is the premise of country singer/songwriter Logan Mize 's new single.
"Better Off Gone" is off of the Kansas native's album Come Back Road and was written by Abe Stoklasa (who co-wrote Chris Lane 's "Fix" and Charles Kelley 's "The Driver") and Donovan Woods . Mize explained to iHeartRadio of how the song came about, "I heard the song ... my friend's Abe Stoklasa and Donovan Woods wrote it. And we were about to finish up my album and I begged to put the song on there because I loved it. I think it translates because it seems to be the song that our fans are loving the most, so they've been singing it back to us for an entire year on the road."
Fans can expect to see Logan out on the road a lot this year. He is currently finishing up "The Way Back Tour" with Russell Dickerson and Carly Pearce , and told iHeartRadio of the trek, "I love touring with Russell and Carly mostly because I have no responsibilities other than just showing up with my guitar and playing for their fans, which is a great change of pace. Russell's a great guy, Carly's a really cool chick and just a lot of fun. I've known Russell for a long time, so it's good to be out on the road with other friends who have been kicking around in Nashville for a long time trying to make something happen."
While catching up with Logan, he also played a game of "Me vs. Drunk Me." We presented the Mize with several real-life situations and asked him to tell us "Me" or "Drunk Me." Read on below.
When you order pizza after midnight
"That's drunk me and sober me because I'll eat pizza, or anything, at any time of the day. Usually, I like taco pizza; a good taco pizza from Gambino's in Kansas."
When you hit the karaoke mic
"That's definitely drunk me because I usually try to avoid the microphone at all costs ... which is weird since I'm a singer. My go to karaoke song is 'Little Rock' by Collin Raye ."
When you make plans and then forget that you made plans
"That's drunk me and sober me, because I forget everything."
When you lose all your things
"That's just regular me. I lose everything, my wallet, my keys, my phone, all day, every day."
When you make friends with complete strangers
"That would be drunk me and sober me. I'm a pretty social guy. "
When you're creeping on someone's on social media
"Well I'm married, so it's never really a girl thing, it's usually like, scouting out how I can be friends with, you know, Eric Stonestreet, for instance ... who's another raging Kansas City Chiefs fan. That's at all hours of the day, sober me."
