Country music has plenty of drinkin’ songs to go around. But if whiskey is your “poison” of choice, we’ve got just the thing for you. Check out these country songs about whiskey!
1. “Tennessee Whiskey” – Chris Stapleton
If you’re “drunk on love,” this is your song. Chris Stapleton’s singing is “as smooth as Tennessee whiskey” as he sings about his woman’s love.
2. “Jim and Jack and Hank” – Alan Jackson
When your lover goes packing, this song will let ’em know you don’t need any of their stuff, anyway. You’ve got Jim and Jack and Hank to keep you company.
3. “Whiskey Lullaby” – Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss
Probably one of the saddest country songs about whiskey, this is a love song gone wrong. Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss add even more emotion to this haunting song with their performances.
4. “Whiskey River” – Willie Nelson
Willie knows how to sing about heartbreak. In this classic song, he asks a “whiskey river” to carry him away from the memories of a past lover.
5. “Whiskey Under the Bridge” – Brooks and Dunn
Forget “water under the bridge!” Brooks and Dunn are moving on from bad experiences with whiskey instead. As they say in the song, maybe “heartache is just a waste of time.”
6. “Cheap Whiskey” – Martina McBride
Even the best whiskey isn’t worth sacrificing relationships over. This Martina McBride song tells a sad story of a man who used to have the love of a woman, but now all he’s got is “the smell of cheap whiskey and the sound of goodbye.”
7. “Sunshine and Whiskey” – Frankie Ballard
Whiskey might be best mixed with water… or in this case, sunshine! Frankie Ballard compares falling in love to the buzz he gets after a stiff drink and a day in the sun.
