Trey Smith and Jennifer Fiedler describe themselves as “Texans at heart, coffee addicts, and fitness junkies” on social media, but they’re also one of the hottest new duos in country music right now. After the success of their debut single, “Nothing But The Night,” Smithfield is at it again with a new single that’s sure to pull at your heartstrings.
Taking a slight detour from their previous upbeat single, “Hey Whiskey” has proved that Smithfield are a multi-dimensional duo – able to sing songs fit for a party and songs for when you won’t admit you need a good cry. The song begins with a very gentle tone and you might get the impression that it will be a smooth, relaxed ride as a listener. However, these lyrics call for more than that as the emotions break through and you can imagine the pain of going through such a situation.
“…and he starts pouring out all the words he never said…Hey Whiskey, why you gotta make him miss me…Hey bourbon, why you gotta leave him burning, feeling that old flame.”
Jennifer Fiedler’s voice shines as the lead vocal throughout the track with Trey Smith providing solid background support. This song has the potential to be a true sing-a-long, windows down, top of your lungs in the car type of tune.
“Hey Whiskey” recently made its debut on Sirius XM The Highway and the exclusive premiere of the music video for this captivating single is currently being featured on CMT Country. Written by Smithfield, Adam Wood, and Casey Derhak, “Hey Whiskey” is guaranteed to connect with a wide audience of fans as they continue to build their legacy as powerful vocalists and seamless collaborators in country music.
