GRAMMY AWARD WINNER AND MULTI-PLATINUM SELLING PERFORMING ARTIST, DAVID BALL, TOPS THE CHARTS 25 YEARS AGO WITH “THINKIN’ PROBLEM”
Twenty Five years ago today, Grammy Award winner and multi-platinum selling performing Artist, David Ball, charted at number one on the RPM100 Country Music Chart with “Thinkin’ Problem.” A fan favorite, it also landed at number two on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart. The popular song was produced by Blake Chancey and penned by David Ball, Allen Shamblin and Stuart Terry Ziff and released by Warner Bros. Nashville. The same year it received a nod for a Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance at the 37th Annual Grammy Awards in 1995. “Thinkin’ Problem” is available for streaming and download on digital music platforms or on his website at davidball.com.
...Yes, I admit I've got a thinkin' problem
She's always on my mind
Her memory goes round and round
I've tried to quit a thousand times
Yes, I admit I've got a thinkin' problem
Fill the glass up to the top
I'll start with lovin' her
But I don't know when to stop
I keep on remembering
How good it used to be
Gettin' stoned all alone
On my favorite memory..
"I’m so grateful for all the things that happened to me, all the fantastic people I’ve met over the years, from this collection of songs. To all the people, from Warner Brothers Nashville, to my record producer Blake Chancey, my sincere thanks for making it happen,” said David Ball. “It was a blast for sure."
Deborah Evans Price, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably calling it a "perfect combination of retro sensibility and '90s production, and a pure honky-tonk delight."
Ball is currently on his Thinkin’ Problem 25th Anniversary Tour, playing more music than ever before from that landmark debut album. You will also hear songs from his 10th studio album, Come See Me (2018), available for download on digital platforms Amazon Music and iTunes and can be ordered from his website davidball.com.
