Tyler Farr, ‘Whiskey in My Water’ [Listen]
Tyler Farr finds love with his new single ‘Whiskey in My Water.’ It’s the fourth from the ‘Redneck Crazy’ album, a collection that just hit stores last month. While he takes chances elsewhere on the project, this ballad plays it safe with a familiar storyline.
“In my truck, flying down a dirt road / Pickin’ you up, feelin’ kinda crazy / Think I’m in luck cause I know my baby,” Farr sings to begin the song.
The genuine hurt he portrayed during ‘Redneck Crazy’ is stronger than the love he feels during this track, but that could be because the album’s title track was a more unique opportunity. While not a true vocal showcase, ‘Whiskey in My Water’ is an opportunity for Farr to show off his strong vocal abilities.
“Cause when the sun goes down it will get a little hotter / Make an old boy’s heart beat a little harder / I know I can’t lose cause it’s going down smooth tonight / One ain’t enough man may I have another / Sitting ’round the fire gettin’ drunk on each other / Every day I pray I thank God I got her / She’s the moon in my shine, the whiskey in my water,” he sings during each chorus.
The instrumentation is fairly straight-forward, leaving the singer to carry the song. He’s more than capable of doing just that.
Why Fans Will Love It: Love songs involving country roads, quiet nights and a bottle of something strong are very popular right now.
Key Lyrics: “When we’re past Flint Bridge, we’ll break out the bottle / Drop it down low, crank up the throttle / I’m good to go, cause I got you tonight”
Did You Know?: Country boys love the Flint River. Aside from Farr, Luke Bryan (‘My Kind of Night’ and ‘We Rode in Trucks’) and Justin Moore (‘If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away’) have mentioned it in songs. The waterway runs through western Georgia.
