wrote this song after a long battle with alcoholism that cost him his marriage and sent him into a depression. "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" came to him very quickly - it took him only about 40 minutes to write. The "you" in the song is alcohol, which was so important to him for so long that it seemed to take on its own persona. Sober, he can drink good coffee every morning, but he'll never completely get over the whiskey.
In 2007, he released a more direct song on this topic: "I Wish I Was Still Drinking."
