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

Academy of Western Artists Nominee

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

JD'S My Whiskey (Not My Name)

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.
