That’s how you do a damn country song right there.
I’ve been listening to Alan Jackson’s new album, Where Have You Gone, pretty much all weekend. And so far the standout for me is “Way Down In My Whiskey.”
A good heartbreak song from AJ about having a few drinks and being haunted by the memory of someone you lost, with a healthy dose of fiddle and steel guitar whining in the background? Doesn’t get much better than that.
Oh, and there was only one songwriter on the track: Alan Jackson.
It’s basically a clinic on how to make a damn country song.
