"Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" is a song written by Gary Hannan and John Wiggins and recorded by American country music artist Joe Nichols. It was released in August 2005 as the first single from Nichols' album III. The song became Nichols' second number one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in late 2005.

One of the song's co-writers, John Wiggins performed with his sister Audrey in the mid-1990s as the country duo John & Audrey Wiggins.

Content[edit]

The song's narrator discusses how his wife carelessly misplaces her clothes when she drinks tequila.

Reception[edit]

Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song a negative rating, saying that it was "mind-numbingly inane."[1] In his review of the album, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic discussed the song favorably, saying that while it has a "silly name and would seem like a throwaway novelty, it is genuinely funny". He also said 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]

Chart performance[edit]

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