The studio version of "Tequila Does" was released in October 2019, the song emerging between the Wildcard singles "It All Comes Out in the Wash" and "Bluebird." "Tequila Does" was written by Jon Randall and Jack Ingram, and it's track No. 12 on Lambert's seventh studio album that arrived Nov. 1.

The singer's Wildcard Tour kicks off Jan. 16 in Tupelo, Miss., before making its way across the United States and Canada. Joining in the concert fun throughout most of the tour are 2019 Taste of Country RISERS star Cody Johnson and Nashville-based quintet Lanco.
"The essence of a wildcard is always having something up your sleeve, in whatever capacity that means to you," Lambert says in a statement. "Which is why I'm excited to kick off this tour with an incredible group of talented artists. We're going to have a blast!"
