Josh Abbott Band, ‘Texas Women, Tennessee Whiskey’ [Listen]
Josh Abbott Band's "Texas Women, Tennessee Whiskey" is a danceable, good-time country song that's a little bit of a 180 for the independent Texas country-rockers.
The mid-tempo song opens with a classic rock-esque electric piano that quickly bleeds into a modern country production with horns reminiscent of Lady Antebellum's recent hit "You Look Good." The extended intro (35 seconds) sets the right vibe for the playful first verse lyrics:
"I can quit dipping that dip / Yeah put it down in nothing flat / I can stop fishing them fish / No I ain't hooked on stuff like that / I don't need to lay back / On some chilled out beach / When I think about life all a man really needs is / Texas women and Tennessee whiskey."
It's not rocket science and it's not meant to be; the song's only objective is to be groovy and fun. The band is simply blending a little bit of Texas song with a little bit of Nashville production and hopefully meeting everyone in the middle on the dance floor.
Look for "Texas Women, Tennessee Whiskey" on Abbott’s forthcoming Until My Voice Goes Out album.
Did You Know? JAB's last album, 2015's Front Row Seat, topped the Billboard Independent Albums chart. Their new album, Until My Voice Goes Out, is set for release on August 18.
