90’s Country Music Spotlight: The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’ (1992)
Take one part Country Music Superstar.
Oh...and then add one part Country Music Superstar.
Mix in some great Country Music creativity and songwriting and what do you have?
Released in November of 1991, by the time 1992 rolled around we were all singing along with the fella's (admittedly on my part, very poorly but hey, I'd crank it up!). And the video above just added to the fun! Who doesn't like a couple good ol' boys getting into a bar fight over a pretty lady.
Two of the biggest names in country music now, these guy's weren't exactly unknown's when 'Whiskey' rocketed up the charts. Travis had already wowed us with 'Country Club', 'Help Me Hold On', 'Anymore' and other hits. And Marty had us 'Hillbilly Rock'ing and 'Burn Me Down' was going to be joining 'Whiskey' on the charts.
So when you take the musical genius of Travis and the musical genius of Marty, you come up with a country music (now) classic that still has that 'crank it up' power!
And by the way, all of us who love country music were in for another treat...the duo released 'This One's Gonna Hurt You' in June of 1992. And yes of course, it was another huge hit.
So how about it guys...how about a new full album of more Travis/Marty magic?
