Kiefer Sutherland YouTube Channel
Kiefer Sutherland earned his claim to fame as a Hollywood star, appearing in films such as A Few Good Men, The Lost Boys, and A Time To Kill. Though Sutherland is perhaps best known for his role as Jack Bauer in the FOX television series, 24.
But Sutherland has a passion other than acting. He also enjoys singing and songwriting. He has released two albums, 2016’s Down in a Hole and 2019’s Reckless & Me. Both albums are country in style, and Down in a Hole even charted at the 35th spot on the U.S. Country Albums chart.
In March 2016, Sutherland released the video for his debut single, “Not Enough Whiskey.” Sutherland co-wrote the song, along with the album’s ten other tracks, with producer Jude Cole. For Sutherland, songwriting has been a much-welcomed relief and way to express himself.
“This record is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary,” Sutherland said in a press release. “All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. There is something very satisfying about being able to look back on my own life, good times and bad, and express those sentiments in music.“
Even though Sutherland enjoyed writing all of the songs for his album, he was even more excited to finally share them with his fans. His music video for “Not Enough Whiskey” gave us all a glance into what his musical style is like.
The video follows Sutherland as he walks around a dingy motel, singing about his lost love and how “there’s not enough whiskey to make it all alright.” In an interview with Rolling Stone, Sutherland revealed that “Not Enough Whiskey” is deeply personal to him.”I’ve certainly been there, where something will happen in life, and one, two, three bottles of whiskey are not going to fix it,” he said.
Knowing Sutherland’s personal connection to the song makes the music video even more captivating than it already was. You can can check it out below.
