Country music is hard hitting, straight shooting, and whiskey drinking! An ever growing list of whiskey references in country music.

“Whiskey Girl” – Toby Keith

She ain’t into wine and roses
Beer just makes her turn up her nose and
She can’t stand the thought of sipping champagne
No Cuervo Gold margaritas
Just ain’t enough good burn in tequila
She needs somethin’ with a little more edge
And a little more pain
She’s my little whiskey girl, she’s my little whiskey girl
My ragged on the edges girl, ah but I like em rough

“If You’re Going Through Hell” – Rodney Adkins

You step off the straight and narrow
And you don’t know where you are
Use the needle of your compass to sew up your broken heart
Ask directions from a genie in a bottle of Jim Beam
And she lies to you
That’s when you learn the truth

If you’re goin’ through hell keep on going
Don’t slow down, if you’re scared don’t show it
You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there

“Whiskey Lullaby” – Brad Paisley

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I’ll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby
