(New York, NY) - "Whiskey in my Water," performed by Tyler Farr and co-written by Razor & Tie Music Publishing's Phillip LaRue and songwriter John Ozier, has hit number one on the Country radio chart. The song, which has also been certified Gold by the RIAA, is Larue's first country number one.

Artist Tyler Farr explains that the song "just came out" while the three were together at a writing retreat in East Tennessee, "It's a guy's redneck way of saying how much his girl means to him - he tells her 'you're the whiskey in my water, and the moon in my shine.'"

Larue adds, "Songwriting can be serendipitous and this experience, that resulted in my first country number one, was special. Since Tyler's album was already complete, we were all just trying to write a great song. When it was done, we had no idea it could be eligible to even make it on the album - so we were thrilled to hear it was slated as his next single. We all wrote the song "in the moment" - the result was a true collaborative success."

"Whiskey in My Water" is the second #1 single off Tyler Farr's Redneck Crazy debut album. The Gold-certified hit gives Tyler back-to-back #1 singles. To date, the chart-topping single "Whiskey in My Water" has also surpassed over 3 million VEVO views and counting.
