She's Actin' Single (I'm Drinkin' Doubles)

I'm a music bloger because I love music, not because I love writing.

Putting music into words has always been a real struggle for me. Heck, music exists because it communicates in a way mere words can't. So it would be a fool's errand for me to try to explain, in mere words, the utter brilliance of Gary Stewart's She's Actin' Single (I'm Drinkin' Doubles).

Luckily, I don't have to. You can just listen and hear it for yourself.

(Of course, if I did have to call your attention to one especially great part of the song, it would be from 1:02 to 1:10, where Gary tell us that his heart is breaking "like the tiny bubbles." Wow. Good stuff!)

How about a double Crown Royal on the rocks with this one?
P.S. I've noticed—especially lately—that your comments on this blog have been superb. The extra information and insight you all provide really adds a lot. So, thanks for helping to make STWOF a truly collaborative experience.

So that's what Gary Stewart looks like. This song has been a favorite of mine for a long time, but I don't recall ever hearing it anywhere but on the radio.
