Country’s Best Drinking Songs, No. 17: Marty Stuart and Travis Tritt, ‘The Whiskey Ain’t Workin”

Cheers-worthy lines:They knew my name at every bar in town / And they knew all of the reasons why I was coming round / ‘Cause in my mind peace I’d find when they’d start to pour / But now the whiskey ain’t workin’ anymore.”

In 1995, Marty Stuart and Travis Tritt released “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin” and it resonated with anyone who’s ever had a broken heart. The two country stars sing of

These drinking buddies also sing the booze-fueled duet ‘Honky Tonkin’s What I Do Best.’

I need one good honky tonk angel to turn my life around
That’s reason enough for me to lay this old bottle down
A woman warm and willing, that’s what I’m looking for
‘Cause the whiskey ain’t workin’ anymore
