If you’re a fan of country music, you’ve probably heard a few songs about whiskey. These songs usually deal with heartache and how whiskey can be soothing. Country musicians such as George Jones and Chris Stapleton have all had hit songs about whiskey. Both singers have said that whiskey is one of their favorite beverages.
Willie Nelson’s “Whiskey River”
Although the song has been a staple of Willie Nelson’s live shows for over forty years, it’s not an original. Originally written by Johnny Bush, it was covered by Nelson in the ’70s. Bush was a Texas native who was connected to RCA executive Jerry Bradley in Nashville.
The two country greats had a lot in common and worked together on various projects. The two of them were friends and played in each other’s bands. In Johnny Cash’s band, they played in the Hillbilly Playboys, the backing band for Ray Price. Both played in the same band, and in a song entitled “Whiskey River,” they helped brand Kentucky bourbon brand Old Whiskey River.
The two men had a long history of friendship. In the late 1970s, Nelson recorded “Whiskey River,” which was a hit for George W. Bush. Nelson’s version first appeared on his 1973 album Shotgun Willie. It was a Top 20 hit, peaking at No. 12 on the Hot Country Songs chart. It is now a staple of Nelson’s live performances. He recorded a new version of the song with Trick Pony in 2002.

The song was released as part of a special Mother’s Day celebration by Capitol Records. The release coincided with Mother’s Day, which is June 19.

He has made millions in the music industry and is a highly respected name in the country music industry.

Morgan Wallen’s “Whiskey Glasses”
“Whiskey Glasses” is one of the unexpectedly successful country songs of 2018. The track was certified platinum and has received over 125 million streams on Spotify. It became Wallen’s second No. 1 and topped country radio charts for three weeks this summer. The song is about a broken relationship, and Wallen knows only that whiskey can help her get over the breakup.
The music video was directed by Justin Clough, and it shows the singer coping with the pain of a broken heart by consuming alcohol. The video quickly became one of the most popular solo videos of all time and has over 144 million views. It features lyrics written by Ben Burgess and Kevin Kadish.
The song focuses on a breakup, which is a common theme in country music. Wallen’s ‘wonderful’ song takes that mental image and turns it into a happy melody. The song contains a double entendre, as Wallen relates to the breakup many times throughout the song. The lyrics also help to reinforce the breakup mental image.
Cole Swindell’s “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”
Cole Swindell’s self-titled debut album is in the Top 5 for the third time, and the latest single, “Ain’t Worth the Whisket,” is among the most popular country songs on the charts. The song features a music video directed by Michael Monaco and shot in Nashville’s Silver Dollar Saloon. It features Swindell and US Special Forces soldier Kyle Davis, who served five tours in Afghanistan. In the song, Cole Swindell salutes Davis with a glass of alcohol.
Ain’t Worth the Whiskey was written in 2011 by Cole Swindell and Adam Sanders. It’s a funny country drinking song that has gained Swindell critical acclaim. The song’s lyrics are very different from other drinking songs and stand out from the crowd. The song’s songwriting process involved Martin creating guitar riffs, while Swindell came up with the melody and lyrics.
The song received positive reviews from critics, and also went to number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. It was Swindell’s third consecutive number-one country single. With this single, he became the first male country artist since Darius Rucker in 2009 to reach three number-one country singles. It also went to number three on the Hot Country Songs chart and number 43 on the Hot 100.
The song is an example of country music with an underlying message. It’s about a man who’s been drinking to celebrate a breakup. Cole Swindell’s song was written after his breakup with his girlfriend. But, he denied writing it about her at the time.
