"Whisky Kisses is a song about the touchy subject of Domestic Violence, but I believe in talking about subject matters people try to avoid. I was listening to Patty Loveless and her "Mountain Soul" album, when the song "You'll never leave Harlan Alive" played. The sound was so eery yet so beautiful. It touched a nerve with me and I let the sound take me in a direction I had yet to write.

At first the song started out as a bluegrass song, simply because of the influence and I touched on parts of the song that sounded great, but didn't leave an impression. A publisher in Nashville listened to the initial version and said " If you are going to write about this, you need to go all in", and so I did. I appreciate it when people come up to me and tell me that I wrote their life in the song..." ~ Carrie Cunningham
