Country music is never complete without the drunken country songs on Jack Daniel’s. These drinking songs are one of the basic themes of the genre, just like heartbreak, infidelity, and incarceration, and even considered an American institution. Some of these contain beer, moonlight, and most often the popular Old Time No. 7 Brand Whiskey, Jack Daniel’s signature charcoal Tennessee whiskey. This 150 year old brand has been country music’s staunchest companion through all of life’s pains and struggles.

4. Jack Daniel’s, you lied to me again by Ray Stevens
One of the many things to experience with Jack Daniel’s is that it gives you that immense confidence that makes you think your life is so well organized.

All he could do was say, “Jack Daniel’s, you lied to me again.” “
