Different drinks can have drastically different effects on people, and in this song, a girl is prone to erratic behavior when she drinks tequila. Whenever she does, she comes home wearing less than she left with, although other alcoholic beverages don't seem to effect her.
The Nashville songwriters Gary Hannan and John Wiggins wrote this song. When we spoke with Joe Nichols, he explained: "They wrote it on a cocktail napkin as they were getting drunk."
Nichols tells us that the second time was the charm when it came to recording this song. "We cut that song twice," he said. "The first time we cut it, I did not feel it. It felt flat to me. I loved the playful nature of the song, but when we cut it the first time, the track did not live up to what the lyric could be. So we went back and recut it sloppier, and the sloppier, angry guitars made it just right."
Women in the audience have been known to get a little wild when Nichols performs this song. He's says various items of clothing sometimes end up off their bodies and onto the stage. "The most dangerous thing is when they throw their shoes up there," he says. "That hurts, man."
This song mentions Bacardi - a type of rum; Smirnoff - a type of vodka; and Patron - a type of tequila.
