Songfacts®:

  • Here, Jason Aldean finds himself killing time in "a long-lost highway town." When a girl joins him at the bar, they share a couple of rounds, and swop some stories. Their boozed up rapport leads to Aldean wishing she will "whiskey him away."
  • "Whiskey Me Away" is a play on the idiom "whisk me away." Having created a whiskey-abetted connection, Aldean wants the girl to take him away to a place where they can get more intimate.
  • "Sand In My Boots" hitmaker Morgan Wallen wrote the song alongside Rodney Clawson, Jeff Hyde and Drive Williams. Jason Aldean's regular producer Michael Knox came up with the country-rock production.
