It was bothering me.  The new song by Florida Georgia Line was bothering me.  It's literally littered with great phrases that catch and hold attention.

Twist off sip a little pass it around.

Hope she's gonna wear those jeans with a tear her mamma never fixed.

But what kind of Whiskey are they talking about?  Fireball Whiskey.  I thought it was just a term that southern folk used to describe some sort of moonshine.  Let's head to google...Oh, 'Fireball Whiskey' is actually a brand of spirits! Tastes Like Heaven, Burns Like Hell!  (that's their slogan) According to,

Rumor has it that Fireball Whisky was forged sometime in the mid-80s during the coldest winter Canada had ever seen when a mixologist turned mad scientist accidentally created a permanent solution to frostbite. The concoction slowly and quietly made its way around North America for a few years as a secret handshake between veteran bartenders. Fireball took an important turn when several bottles were smuggled to the lower 48 from Canada. Word got out and now we're just trying to make it fast enough to keep the fire burning.

I love a well written song.  Round Here is one of them.  Florida Georgia Line is hugely popular right now. It's songs like this that get your ears itching that are going to keep them popular...for a long time!

Hammerin’ a nail
Stackin’ them bales
I’m dog tired by the 5 o’clock hour
But I’m ready to raise some hell
And Jesse’s gettin’ ready
I’m gassin’ up the Chevy
I’m gonna pick her up at 6
I hope she’s gonna wear the jeans with a tear
That her mama never fixed

The moon comes up and the sun goes down
We find a little spot on the edge of town
Twist off, sip a little, pass it around
Dance in the dust, turn the radio up
And that fireball whiskey whispers
Temptation in my ear
It’s a feelin’ alright Saturday night
And that’s how we do it ’round here
Yeah that’s how we do it ’round here

Mud on the grips
Wild cherry on her lips
I’ve been workin’ and tryin’ and flirtin and dyin’
For an all night kinda kiss
And country on the boombox
And candles on the toolbox
Doin’ everything right
Got the country boy charm
Turned all the way on tonight


Yeah that’s how we do it ’round here
Yeah that’s how we do it ’round here
