Whiskey Whispers (feat. Shannon Schmitt)

Story Behind The Song

Whiskey Whispers is the debut single by country singer/songwriter Jarred Grant featuring award-winning guest vocalist Shannon Schmitt. It is poignant duet about two lovers from opposite walks of life who come together over their shared appreciation for country music. Whiskey Whispers was written and recorded in Boston, MA and released for digital download in July 2012. The twang of the lap steel over the percussive sound of the acoustic guitar sets the tone for this mid-tempo country song right out of the gate. Shannon's reflective vocals blend perfectly with Jarred's deep, rich drawl bringing to mind such greats as Johnny & June Carter Cash or Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. Whiskey Whispers will also be available on the up coming full length album tentatively scheduled for release in the winter of 2012

Lyrics

When I was young
I never thought I'd be a cowgirl
but now I'm singing country songs
with the band.

The twang of your guitar
is going to carry me away.
So I'll sing about tomorrow
and how it will be
as great as today

I grew up in these cowboy boots
and the sounds of the west.
Now your whiskey whispers
like an angels' kiss
will carry me away.

I'll keep singing about tomorrow
and how it will be like this forever
How tomorrow's come and gone
and those cold winter nights
were dark and long.

Oh cowgirl, you sing so sweet
Oh cowboy, play your song for me

But through all these years
you have kept me warm
and still your whiskey whispers
Like the sound of an old guitar
will carry me away.
