Ledbetter and his Unapologetically Country band are entertaining, yes. But there’s more to their music than that. The simple, yet poignant lyrics, the singer’s unapologetically, stone cold country vocals, and the steely glint of blue eyes that peer out from beneath the wide brim of a real cowboy hat…. These things consistently and completely grab listeners by the heart and pull them into a song.
Dennis Ledbetter - It Might Be The Whiskey - Digital Music Video
A new original song from unapologetically country singer Dennis Ledbetter, explores the pain of knowing you screwed up a perfectly great relationship—and now there’s no going back and fixing it. It’s too late, the fiddle wails, and there’s no one to blame but yourself. It may be the whiskey consumed in an attempt to numb the pain. It may be depression on the brink of self-induced insanity. Whatever the vehDennis Ledbetter - It Might Be The Whiskey4icle, this guy has found his way to the bottom and he can’t find a way to stand up and start over. Dennis Ledbetter possesses the heartbreak-inflected, George Jones-tinged country vocal to tell this “three chords and the truth” song. If you prefer heartache to happiness in your country music, this song is for you.
JD’s My Whisky (Not My Name)" There’s something undeniably satisfying about a cryin’ in your beer country shuffle that sports twin fiddles and a no-frills lead guitar laying down the heartbreak beat. Dennis Ledbetter’s vocal quality and delivery bring Hank, Jr. to mind on this song about a country picker who has sacrificed too much in his personal life for his music. JD (Jack Daniels) is the singer’s whiskey, not his name, is the conversation starter with the pretty lady three stools down the bar at some old club on Lower Broad in Nashville. If you like your country music to sound like country music, you’ll find that co-writers Ledbetter and Chris Bellamy have hit the nail on the head with this clever original.
