This song finds Krystal singing about a single mom who strips in order to put food on the table. The singer penned the song with Rodney Clawson and Lynn Hutton. Krystal recalled to Taste of Country
: "That was a really fun day of writing. Rodney Clawson thought that I was 17 and and I said, "I wanna write a song called 'Whiskey and Lace,' I'd love for it to be my album title."
"We were talking about story lines and they were like, 'You can do the one-night stand thing... You could do the longtime lovers that have lost their spark that are trying to get it back,'" Krystal continued. "And Rodney, being ornery, was like, 'Well what if we just make it about a stripper?' I was like 'Yeah!'"
"We got about a verse in and he goes, 'You know your dad is gonna kill me for this!,'" she added. "I was like Rodney, I'm 25 and I'm married. The stripper is going to be the least of my dad's worries."
