NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 29, 2023) - Chancey Williams is turning to a “surefire cure” for heartbreak in his new song, “I’m On the Whiskey,” available everywhere today. The true blue twang-filled track premiered exclusively with Whiskey Riff yesterday (9/28), who declared it a “good ole’ fashioned heartbreak tune” that “will have you ready to slide up to the bar for a glass of that black label.”

Williams penned “I’m On the Whiskey” with Jody Stevens and Trent Wilmon, spinning a tale of a down-home narrator whose lover left him for a man with a much higher net worth. He takes his sorrows to the bar and starts in on the whiskey, imagining his ex enjoying the finer things in life like private jets and islands.

“She’s on cloud nine / I’m at a dive,” Williams sings in the chorus. “She’s drinking that champagne / I’m getting sky high / On this surefire cure from Lynchburg, Tennessee / She ain’t coming back, so bartender hit me / She’s on a plane and I’m on the whiskey.”

Produced by Trent Wilmon, the song maintains Williams’ signature credibility when it comes to cowboy life, which has become a key part of the connection he’s forged with his fans. A Saddle Bronc athlete-turned artist, there’s no taking the country out of Williams’ voice, which shines through the song.

“Well, this ain’t a love song,” laughed Williams, “but it’s not really a regular heartbreak tune either. The ol’ boy in the song loses his girl to a rich guy. He’s bellied up to the bar while she’s flying around on private jets, but it’s kinda hard to tell who’s havin’ more fun.”

“I’m On the Whiskey” is the latest in a lineup of new music Williams has shared with fans this year. After releasing his sixth studio album, One of These Days, in March, the Wyoming native kept the music coming with new song “It Ain’t You” in July, telling an ill-fated love story from a perspective only a true cowboy can. The ‘90s-inspired track premiered with Wide Open Country, who called it “a vibrant and fun song that dives into the challenges many cowboys face while trying to sustain a romantic relationship.”

One of These Days and its 12 tracks received raves from People, Billboard, Taste of Country, Whiskey Riff, Holler, Saving Country Music and more. One of These Days highlights Williams’ brand of “hearty music” (PEOPLE) and is filled with “gems” (Billboard) anchored by the singer’s “pleasant baritone,” with Whiskey Riff declaring Williams “the real deal” and “a damn good songwriter.”
