Erin Enderlin returns with her new song “Somebody’s Shot of Whiskey,” an anthem for those who march to the beat of their own drum and embrace their unique qualities. Listen to “Somebody’s Shot of Whiskey” HERE.
“I got the idea from a t-shirt that said, ‘I’d rather be somebody’s shot of whiskey, than everybody’s cup of tea’ that just captured the way that I’m feeling these days,” shares Enderlin. “All I want to do is make music I love – preferably with a bunch of fiddle and steel – and be myself. I’m a 39-year-old woman singing old school country story songs, finding my people and loving every minute of it.”
“Somebody’s Shot of Whiskey” echoes the laid-back cool of 70’s Emmylou Harris with lines that evoke the unapologetic irreverence of Loretta Lynn. Amidst acoustic guitar, crisp snare and cheeky fiddle, Enderlin’s protagonist admits she’s not for everybody, then celebrates not just self-acceptance, but love with another person that can only be found when we are wholly and unapologetically ourselves.
Enderlin released her full-length album Faulkner County in November 2019 to critical acclaim, earning the #17 spot on Rolling Stone’s “40 Best Country And Americana Albums of 2019”.
A member of the 2018 CMT “Next Women of Country” class, Enderlin joins Tanya Tucker during the 2021 CMT Next Women of Country Tour on select dates in August and September.
