Whiskey Lullaby

Brad Paisley - Whiskey Lullaby ft. Alison Krauss

This song isn't only a beautiful song, if you listen closely to the words you'll notice it has a complete story behind it. The song is set in the World War II era. When the song begins you see the soldiers wife tell him when he comes home they will start their family. When he comes home, without her expecting it, he walks in the house. Stops for a moment looking at the pictures of his wife, replaying her voice in his head of what she said. When he hears his wife's voice upstairs, we discovers his wife in the bed with another man. So he drank his pain away. Once it killed him, his wife blamed herself for it all. She couldn't get him off her mind, she drank her pain away. They are now both buried side by side underneath the willow. This song shows how some women of soldiers turns their back on them and disrespects them while they are fighting for our country.
