DOUG ADKINS`S NEW SINGLE “Not Enough Whiskey”

Doug Adkins is a singer-songwriter from Montana and released on April 30th, 2018 one of his most significant albums of his career – the album “DIRT ROADS AND FENCE LINES“. This album comes with 12 amazing, unforgettable songs – traditional country music where you will tap your foot or dance all the way through…

The first radio single “SECOND HAND HEART” off the “DIRT ROADS AND FENCE LINES” CD was for 5 weeks in the top 20 on U.S. Roots Music Report Chart in both the Singles Country Chart and the Singles Americana Country Chart.  The 2nd single  is the #5 song on the CD with the title “NOT ENOUGH WHISKEY

What is the song “Not Enough Whiskey” about?  

“Yes it’s a relationship song, but not in the traditional (I’m lonely, missing you, want you back, trying to get over you) theme that so many relationship songs use.  At first glance the listener may think this is a song only from a man’s perspective, but I was careful when writing this song to make sure the song worked well from either a male or female point of view! I guess a lot of folks, whether you’re a man or a woman have that special someone in their past where they can look to them and honestly say, “there’s just not enough whiskey here to drink, to convince me to sit and listen to one more night of you telling my how wrong I am!”

“Then I have a little fun with the song when I say in the 2nd verse “not only is there not enough whiskey, but there’s not enough money down in the bank to give your lovin’ one more try!”  And of course what’s a good country song if you don’t talk about driving your pick-up truck and running out of gas? So, in the last verse I had to talk about that and of course my beloved dog that she hated! The words are “There’s not enough gas left in my truck, to turn around and bring you with me… so I’ll head on down the road, me and that dog you say you hate, and my favorite radio!  The poor dog, well of course she hated the dog!  It was my dog! Enjoy!”

Lyrics Not Enough Whiskey“, written by Doug Adkins

Not enough whiskey here to drink
To listen to another night of your preachin’
I’m sure somehow it’s all my fault,
know you got it all figured out
But I don’t care now cause I’m gone
 

Don’t give a damm about what you say
I  wasn’t the one who done us wrong
You were makin’ up things there in mind
Creatin’ stories all the time
Long before I moved along

 
There’s not enough money down in the bank
To give your lovin’ one more try
You know it really wasn’t all that good
You can find someone else… to chastize…
Now that’s a big word… let’s ride

 
It ain’t so hard for me to see
how you’ll better off without me
Always there to critisize
finally have your peace of mind
instead of ruinin’ what’s left of mine
 

Not enough gas left in my truck
Turn around and bring you with me
So I’m just headin’ on down the road
Me and that dog you say you hate
and my favorite radio
 

Not enough whiskey here to drink
To listen to another night of your preachin’
I’m sure somehow it’s all my fault,
know you got it all figured out
But I don’t care now cause I’m gone
… we’re outta here!

 

That’s all I got to say about that
Feeling better all the time!

The Single “Second Hand Heart” – The Story Behind The Song (new Album “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines)

Doug Adkins, traditional Country Music singer and Songwriter is writing his own lyrics.

Next month his Single “Second Hand Heart” of the new Album “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines” will be released.

For this CD, “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines” Doug Akdins wrote all 12 songs in about 2 1/2 weeks, so he had paper everywhere to the point that you wouldn`t know which piece of paper went with which song! But finally it got all sorted out.

For the first single, Second Hand Hearts, Doug Adkins didn’t want to reuse the same old story where guy meets girl in a bar, he convinces her he is the one even though she is hurting and they go off in la la land together. Doug Adkins wanted to give the guy a little more depth! So this particular guy in a bar is a little more attentive, and he actually notices that after their eyes meet, she turns away, and he can tell, that she’s still hurting. But he asks her to dance anyway, she accepts and while they are dancing she states she’s not sure she can ever love again, and the cowboy says, “I don’t need you to fall, I’m just happy here dancin’.”

Doug Adkins:

“I was really happy with that line when it came out because it helps build that depth I was referring to that most of we country boys are accused of not having much of! But also, I felt that would be something a woman who was hurting would like to hear because she certainly doesn’t need any pressure is she’s still hurting. And that’s the line that sets up the chorus and allows our cowboy to say; but, however, if you ever choose to love again, I’d be there if you called, I’d take your second hand heart and just maybe together, we can mend all the broken pieces. Second Hand Heart, Hope you love it , hope it says something to you, as it does to me!”

Today we want to share the lyrics of the new Single that Comes out on February 1st, 2018 – SAVE THE DATE!!!

“Second Hand Heart”… Written by Doug Adkins

Standin’ by the bar, I saw our eyes meet
You quickly turned away (an I knew right then), that you were still hurtin’
I asked you to dance, felt so good together
Movin’ like one, but you’re tellin’ me
That you could never
Let me into your heart, cause you’re still tryin’ to heal
You think you could never love again, that’s the way that you’re feelin’
But I don’t need you to fall, I’m just happy here dancing
But make no mistake, I’d surely be there, if ever you call
I’d take you’re second hand heart, the one that tore your world apart
You say it’s lying in pieces that can never be found
And maybe someday, somewhere, somehow, you choose to love again
And we can mend the broken parts of your second hand heart
Well I’ve been in your shoes
In love it seems we get all used
And there’s nothin’ like knowing that you’ve been the fool
but I swear on my soul, all the stars in the sky
I’ll never break your heart, I ain’t one of those guys
But I’ll take you’re second hand heart, the one that tore your world apart
You say it’s lying in pieces that can never be found
And maybe someday, somewhere, somehow, you’ll choose to love again
And we can mend the broken parts of your second hand heart
Maybe someday, somewhere, somehow, you’ll choose to love again
And we can mend the broken parts of your second hand heart
Together we’ll mend the broken parts of your second hand heart

Doug Adkins – Dirt Roads And Fence Lines / The Story Behind The Album – Recording in Nashville

20170403_091242.png

In 2005 Doug Adkins recorded the CD Whiskey Salesman in Nashville and released to radio in the U.S. and in Europe.

youtube

In Europe Whiskey Salesman was #1 for 4 consecutive weeks on the Hot Disc Charts that went out all over Europe, Australia, New Zealand.  As a singer-songwriter in need of a hit country song, that song gave a kick start to a slow moving career and Doug Adkins immediately was touring 100+ country concerts per year. During the recording of that CD he met a couple of the Nashville Greats, musicians such as Mike Chapman, Lonnie Wilson, Brent Mason and others. 

 

“Mike Chapman who played bass guitar and produced the sessions became a good friend of mine and was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Sadly enough, Mike passed away year before last and is truly missed!
I also met Brent Mason (Electric Guitar) and Lonnie Wilson (Drummer – Producer), and this album “Dirt Roads And Fence Lines” marks the 4th time we have gotten together to make some Country Music together! final version heller
Brent Mason has the hit country guitar CD “Hot Wired” as well as being the most recorded country guitar player in history and having won CMA guitar player of the year 6 times.
Lonnie Wilson is the former lead singer from the band Bandana which charted 10 Hot Country singles from 1982 to 1986.  Now Lonnie Wilson has arguably the hottest drum sound in Nashville, making him the go to guy for the new CD “Dirt Roads and Fence Lines”!

Check this link from the new Dustin Lynch song “Hell Of A Night”, where Lonnie is on the drums.”

Also working with Doug Adkins on his new album “Dirt Roads and Fence Lines” were Scotty Sanders on Steel Guitar and Jimmy Carter  on Bass Guitar. 

 

Scotty Sanders has one of the sweetest steel guitar tones period! He has recorded with hundreds of Nashville artists including Charley Pride, Randy Houser, Sammy Kershaw, Joey+Rory, Trace Adkins, Dean Brody. Jimmy Carter is a legend and has a one of a kind sound and drive. His great reputation led him to work in the studio with renowned artists such as Toni Braxton, Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Dustin Lynch, George Jones, Nancy Sinatra, and of course Doug Adkins

“To date this is our 4th CD together, and I believe it is by far the best country music we’ve done together!  I believe everyone knows that I’m country through and through!  When you buy a Doug Adkins CD, you are going to get some great music to listen and dance to!”
