In a recent in-depth profile piece, Taste of Country tells the story of the duo’s journey with “Hey Whiskey:” “When it came time to choose a single for terrestrial radio, they went with the hit. “Hey Whiskey” is the song fans demanded, and when you’ve worked this hard to get to a point that real radio airplay is a possibility, you’re humble enough to honor public outcry instead of the ego of the inner-artist.”-Taste of Country
