The song, written by Tofer Brown, Karen Fairchild, Sean McConnell, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook was a fun moment of levity for the band and their co-writers and was completed in under an hour paying homage to friends named Jack, Jose, Brandy, Sherry, and Captain. “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” is featured on the band’s 9th studio album Nightfall, which debuted at the top spot of Billboard’s Country Chart upon its release in January 2020.
LBT (WBW) 1 OC: …we need right now. :22
“I really love the spirit of this song so much. We wrote it and it was really just like in the moment – ‘Hey, who wants a glass of wine or a beer or whiskey?’ And next thing you know we have a song, and now here we go, we’re putting it out. So, I hope the fans love it like we do. It’s a jam. It’s a party, and that’s what we need right now.”
