Carrie Underwood on Wednesday premiered the video for “Drinking Alone,” the latest single from her sixth studio album Cry Pretty.

The video, directed by Randee St. Nicholas, shows the country star performing in a cabaret and zeroing in on a hot guy drinking alone.

Underwood performed the track, which she wrote with David Garcia and Brett James, live at last week’s CMA Awards.

On The Ty Bentil Show, the singer recalled the origins of the song.

“I had the title, just 'Drinking Alone.’ Brett was like, 'I feel like we could do something more with that. What if it was like, drinking alone together?’ I was like, 'Ooh, I like it,' so we ran with it, and tried to put together this whole storyline,” said Underwood.

“I didn't want it to be like, 'We meet up at a bar and go home together,' because that's not me, on any level, and I couldn't relate to telling that story very well. So it was so much about both getting over somebody. We're just here. This is nothing, but let's just be miserable together, and just forget about all of that and have this fun night right here in this moment, and after that, peace out. Not a thing.”
