It takes a certain kind of song to tug at your heartstrings and make you feel deep emotion. The lyrics have to be relatable, and the accompaniment has to be produced just perfectly to drive the message home.
Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss were both famous in their own right, but their chart-topping duet made fans weep. “Whiskey Lullaby” is a gut-wrenching tune about trying to forget about the love of your life when you’re no longer together.
The heartbreaking reality comes through in Paisley’s crisp vocals when the duo performed at The Grand Ol’ Opry. Krauss’ voice is just as powerful, especially later in the song when there are impressive notes she hits with ease.
Their voices together make a one of a kind sound. There’s no denying why “Whiskey Lullaby” went platinum multiple times. Though it’s sad, it’s a tune we can’t help but replay over and over again.
