Justin Moore knew the moment he heard Priscilla Block perform live at an event that the two would make a powerful team. The pair previously performed at a guitar pull, taking turns singing acoustic renditions of their songs, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. That paved the way to the smash-hit duet, “You, Me, And Whiskey.”
Block, who recently released the deluxe edition of her debut album, gushed that she was “fan-girling” over the show with Moore. She remembered that he approached her afterward, saying, “‘If there is anything that I can do for you, let me know.’ And I was like, wow, that’s really nice.”
Moore joked, per his record label, that he offered his help and then asked “for a favor,” he said with a laugh.
“No, this is huge for me, are you kidding me?! I mean, obviously I haven’t had a hit yet at country radio, and when I heard this song I just knew that it was super special, and I’m very honored to be on it,” Block assured. “And you’ve had so much success, and I look up to his career. So, it’s just really, really cool that I get to be a part of it.”
“You, Me, And Whiskey” portrays a couple reflecting on the beginning of their relationship: “You, me, and whiskey/ All night long/ Sinkin’ to the bottom of them country songs/ Fire burnin’ hot, ’til the last drop’s gone/ Let’s turn it up/ Turn it up/ ’Til we take that black label buzz too far/ And say them things that stay in the dark/ Ain’t nothin’ as sweet/ Ain’t nothin’ as strong/ As you, me, and whiskey all night long.”
Moore, who will include the song on his upcoming album this year, previously said it was the “spiciest, sexiest, most sultry — whatever you wanna say — video that we’ve done.”
Moore is part of the all-star iHeartCountry Festival lineup on May 13, at Moody Center in Austin, Texas. Fans across the country will able to tune in to all of the incredible live performances at this year's iHeartCountry Festival as the event will be broadcast on iHeartRadio country stations nationwide, and on iHeartRadio.com as well as the iHeartRadio app on Saturday, May 13th at 8pm ET/5pm PT.
