Album: Nothing Shines Like Neon (2016)

  • Lyrics
  • Here, Randy Rogers sings about a hard-drinking woman. The song came from a conversation he had with an old friend prior to a show in Houston. "He said something about a girl he had seen the night before, and that he could see the tequila in her eyes," Rogers recalled to Billboard magazine. "Of course lights went off in my head; I jotted it down in my phone. I told him, 'I'm gonna write that song.'"
