Dennis Ledbetter – It Might Be The Whiskey – Animated Music Video
“It Might Be the Whiskey”
Saint and Sinner Records releases New Animated Video for “It Might Be the Whiskey” from the EP “It Might Be the Whiskey” The video was produced by Larry Simpson for Saint and Sinner Video Production
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.
“Motel Blues” is # 1 on the Main Internet Chart and the Top 30 Indie Country Chart. It is currently # 6 on the Main Chart
Dennis Ledbetter has been nominated by the Academy of Western Artist for 2016 Pure Country Male Artist. “My Life Is a Country Song” has been nominated for Pure Country Album/CD, and “Open A Vein” & “Motel Blues” have been nominated for Pure Country Song.
We have patiently waited for a while, but Dennis Ledbetter’s sophomore CD “My Life Is A Country Song” has finally arrived… and it was worth the wait. Don’t you just really miss country music, sometimes? The shuffles, twosteps and blue yodels, the twin fiddles and sobbing steel guitar.
