  • This is a track from the Target Deluxe Edition of Crash My Party. It finds Bryan comparing the buzz of being around his girl to the buzz of whiskey. According to the singer, the title of the song pretty much tells it like it is. "We all know how rough whiskey can be on you, and I'll just say this guy is getting burned pretty good by her," he explained. "It's [a] cool, really cool song. I love the style. It's kind of got that classic verse, and then when the chorus kicks in, it's just a big ole in your face rock and then drops down to that cool open kind of chilled out dancing cheek-to-cheek thing."
