The latest hit single from Saint & Sinner Records. “It Might Be the Whiskey”

Chorus:
It might be the whiskey, me still doing time
It might be the fact, I’m going out of my mind
I have no one to blame, I crossed that line
Help me I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up
Verse:
Her memory haunts me, She’s calling my name
I’m trying to fight it, by pouring whiskey on pain
My life flashed before me, I might be dead
Cause the woman I’m loving, is just a ghost in my bed.
Chorus:
It might be the whiskey, me still doing time
It might be the fact, I’m going out of my mind
I have no one to blame, I crossed that line
Help me I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up
Instrumental: Same as chorus
Verse:
Along about midnight, four walls closing in
The lights start to flicker, as her spirit moves in
She was my woman, I was her man
Broke the vows that were taken, gotta pay for my sins
Chorus:
It might be the whiskey, me still doing time
It might be the fact, I’m going out of my mind
I have no one to blame, I crossed that line
Help me I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up
Tag:
I have no one to blame, I crossed that line
Help me I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up
Help me I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up

Publishing: Saint & Sinner Publishing – BMI“It Might Be the Whiskey,” a new original song from unapologetically country singer Dennis Ledbetter, explores the pain of knowing you screwed up a perfectly great relationship—and now there’s no going back and fixing it. It’s too late, the fiddle wails, and there’s no one to blame but yourself. It may be the whiskey consumed in an attempt to numb the pain. It may be depression on the brink of self-induced insanity. Whatever the vehicle, this guy has found his way to the bottom and he can’t find a way to stand up and start over. Dennis Ledbetter possesses the heartbreak-inflected, George Jones-tinged country vocal to tell this “three chords and the truth” song. If you prefer heartache to happiness in your country music, this song is for you.

JD'S My Whiskey (Not My Name)

JD’s My Whisky (Not My Name) – AWA Pure Country Song of the Year Finalist

JD’s My Whisky (Not My Name) – Academy of Western Artist’s Pure Country Song of the Year – Top 5 Finalist

There’s something undeniably satisfying about a cryin’ in your beer country shuffle that sports twin fiddles and a no-frills lead guitar laying down the heartbreak beat. Dennis Ledbetter’s vocal quality and delivery bring Hank, Jr. to mind on this song about a country picker who has sacrificed too much in his personal life for his music. JD (Jack Daniels) is the singer’s whiskey, not his name, is the conversation starter with the pretty lady three stools down the bar at some old club on Lower Broad in Nashville. If you like your country music to sound like country music, you’ll find that co-writers Ledbetter and Chris Bellamy have hit the nail on the head with this clever original.
JD’s My Whiskey Not My Name – Lyrics
Verse:
She sat down in the bar room
Just three stools from a fool
She leaned my way and asked me
What’s your name ……..
You don’t want to know me 
My life…. is filled with pain
The waitress calls me JD, but
That’s my whiskey not my name.
Chorus:
JD’s my whiskey not my name.
I went out searching for my wealth and fame
But all I found was heartaches
While I played honky tonk games
Now it’s me and old JD
With no one else to blame
Instrumental – (Same as chorus)
 Verse: 
My mind drifts back to yesterday
Right here on Broadway
When pedal steels and fiddles ruled the day.
What was it I thought I heard… Hank Williams say
Now it’s me and ole JD headed down a lost highway.
Chorus: 
JD’s my whiskey not my name.
I went out searching for my wealth and fame
But all I found was heartaches
While I played honky tonk games
Now it’s me and old JD
To help me ease the pain
Tag: 
JD’s my whiskey not my name.

Saint and Sinner Records, is proud to announce the digital release of Dennis Ledbetter’s new album Opposite Walls on September 2nd 2019. Fans will hear a good deal about both sides of life and love in the twelve songs on his new recording, Opposite Walls. Ledbetter tells his stories in a whiskey-drenched, stone cold country singing voice that just about anyone can relate to. The songs remind you of things your own friends have said and done. If you’re honest, you’ll admit that some of them could have been written about you. Ledbetter’s album is kind of like a 40 minute therapy session/ sermon set in a vintage Honky Tonk, or at times on the back porch at the lake house.

For those who have been missing authentic country music, it’s here in spades, complete with wailing steel guitars, Honky Tonk piano, screaming fiddles, hard-edged electric guitars with a slightly distorted edge, and all the other musical fixings necessary for this country diner menu of love stories that range from rock bottom loneliness and cheating songs to the thrill of new love and the satisfaction of the lasting kind. If you miss the heart and soul of real country music in voices like George Jones, Merle Haggard, Johnny Paycheck, and Hank, Jr., you’re going to love Dennis Ledbetter.

A Louisiana native and a lifelong student of country music (the real stuff), Dennis Ledbetter brings a fresh, but achingly familiar voice to the stage and radio airways. His classic instrumental arrangements and vocal style harken back to country music of the 1970s and 80s when the genre still had its trademark twang and was damn proud of it, thank you very much. He’s spent years onstage at Honky Tonks and clubs in the South, honing his craft and earning the tears and smiles that are reflected in his authentic voice.

Country radio has fallen in love with Dennis Ledbetter’s music. The debut album, If You Drive Me to Drinking (I’ll Buy the Gas), generated five #1 singles on the New Music Weekly Charts. His sophomore CD, My Life Is a Country Song, garnered three #1 singles on the same charts. The EP It Might Be the Whiskey produced another # 1 single. 

Good songs and stories the ones that leap through the lines of music to touch your heart with characters that seem as real as the friends and family you interact with everyday aren’t portrayed effectively in shallow, bro-country ditties with a five-note vocal range. The kind of country songs that Ledbetter writes and sings are the ones that can be a little tough to get through without tearing up because they’re so incredibly sad and true-to-life. As a country singer and also a songwriter, Dennis opens a vein, and lets true life stories and emotions flow. The simple, yet poignant lyrics, the singers unapologetically, stone cold country vocals, and the steely glint of blue eyes that peer out from beneath the wide brim of a real cowboy hat. These things consistently and completely grab listeners by the heart and pull them into a song. 

Friends and fans will be pleased to hear Ledbetter’s new Album, which will be available on September 2, 2019 to radio and available for sale in all digital formats including CD Baby, Amazon, ITunes, & Google Play. The tunes will be available on the streaming sites Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, Tidal, and Napster.
