“Whiskey Wears Off” by Dane Louis is a country sing-along sure to make you stomp your boots. The song opens with Louis’ warm and twangy good ole boy voice accompanied by a classic electric guitar. The listener is immediately transported to a Nashville bar, which also happens to be the setting of the song. The story begins with woman talking to Louis’ character at the bar and when the question arises about continuing the night, Louis warns her by singing, “Just looking for a little bit of healing tonight/ something about it doesn’t feel right/ like a radio played an old worn out song/ I might not love you when the whiskey wears off”.
The story continues as the relationship goes sour. Louis poetically compares it to “a ship out at sea with no water to cross”. He forecasts the end of the relationship in the cleverly written bridge, “Whether its headaches whether its heartaches somewhere in between/there will never be an ever for you and me.” Turning a sad story into a honky tonk sing-along takes smart writing, and Louis accomplishes the job effortlessly. “Whiskey Wears Off” is a classic country tune that is easy to dance to and difficult to get out of your head.
