Never before has there been a song that impacted country music like the new single Ain’t No Whiskey Worth That, written and recorded by Will Gunnell. Without a doubt, drinking has made an impact on country music just like pickup trucks and steel guitars. It’s become a common topic, but few have addressed what impact alcohol has on personal lives and the toll it can take in the long term. This hit song take the listener through a story of how easy it starts, and with continued use, how drinking involves and damages everything and everyone around us, slowly robbing us of everything that really matters, revealing there’s no alcohol more valuable than you’re family. But, it doesn’t leave the listener hanging without a possibility of change. By the end of the song, the theme changes from hopelessness to hope with a simple and heartfelt prayer. With every truthful word and emotional melody, this song delivers a hard dose of reality everyone needs to hear, whether you know someone struggling with addiction or it’s your own personal battle.
