Atlanta-based father-daughter duo The Brookses have a song for when absolutely nothing is going right and all you can do is laugh.
"If Tears Were Whiskey," the latest release from the duo's forthcoming LP Lucky Charm, is about a wandering soul who's unlucky in love and pretty much everything else
"I tried to sell my soul to the devil today/ He took one look and said 'Man, no way'/ Boys give me a nickel 'cause I can't keep a dime/ If tears were whiskey, I'd stay drunk all the time," the duo sings on the country-folk number.
Jim Brooks says the song was inspired by revered songwriters, such as Harry McClintock and Woody Guthrie, whose songs could often be as funny as they were impactful.
