The song was co-written by Gary Hannan and John Wiggins, who, along with his sister Audrey, performed in the mid-1990s as the country duo John & Audrey Wiggins.

Content[edit]

The song's narrator discusses how a woman's clothes disappear when she drinks tequila.

Reception[edit]

Kevin John Coyne, reviewing the song for Country Universe, gave it a negative rating. He summed up his review by calling it "mind-numbingly inane."[1] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic in his review of the album, discussed the song favorably saying that while it has a "silly name and would seem like a throwaway novelty" it is genuinely funny. He goes on to say that Nichols "delivers it with sly humor and a low-key swagger that shows more character, as a vocalist, than he did on his previous albums."[2]

The song debuted at number 59 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs on the week ending August 6, 2005.
