Love and Theft‘s new music video for “Whiskey on My Breath” is a poignant story of redemption. In the clip, Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson are shown performing the stripped-down track together on acoustic guitars. Soon, though, the focus turns to an older man lying on his couch with a pounding head and nearly empty bottle of whiskey in his hand.

As the country duo sing “there was a little, little bit left so I picked it up and I killed the rest,” the man takes the final sip from the bottle before he gets a call from his daughter. He sets his phone down without answering it, but it’s this call from his Baby Girl and finding a photo of her on his dresser that is enough to convince himself that he needs to clean up his act, if not for himself then for his daughter.
