"Wink" is a song written by Bob DiPiero and Tom Shapiro, and recorded by American country music singer Neal McCoy. It was released in April 1994 as the second single from his album No Doubt About It. Also the second consecutive Number One from that album, "Wink" spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. In 1996, the song received the Robert J. Burton award from Broadcast Music Incorporated for being the most-performed country song of the year.[1]


It is an up-tempo song in which the narrator states that, no matter how he is feeling on a particular day, he feels better once his lover winks at him.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Martin Kahan and premiered in mid-1994. It shows McCoy performing the song at an event, as well as trying to get his lover to wink, which she refuses.
