During a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, critically acclaimed actor, Ashton Kutcher opened up about the alcohol-induced moment that lead him to sing a Kenny Chesney song to his now wife, Mila Kunis, before confessing his love to her. 

While he may not have been very sober in the moment, Ashton admitted he can still recall the details of the night very clearly. 

“I remember it distinctly ’cause I came into her house and I was singing this Kenny Chesney song and I was like, ‘You and tequila make me crazy,’ cause there had been a little too much tequila consumed and they both make me crazy.”

The lyrics that Kutcher is referring to is the chorus of Chesney’s GRAMMY-nominated song, “You and Tequila,” which was co-written by Deana Carter and Matraca Berg. In May of 2011, he released the smash hit with guest vocals from Grace Potter and featured it as a track on his 13th studio album, Hemingway’s Whiskey

“’Cause you and Tequila make me crazy / Run like poison in my blood / One more night could kill me, baby / One is one too many, one more is never enough,” they sing in the chorus. 

“You and Tequila” went on to be nominated for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012. “You and Tequila” was certified 2x platinum by the RIAA on August 9, 2018.

Continuing with his story, Kutcher revealed that after serenading Kunis, he finally said the words he had come to her house to say.

“And then I told her that I love her and I meant it when I said it.”

Despite his confidence, Kunis wasn’t quite convinced that he was speaking the truth in his drunken state. 

“She was like, ‘Just tell me—say that in the morning,” he recalled. 

The actor granted her wish and luckily, his feelings still remained true once he sobered up the next day.

“I woke her up and I was like, ‘Hey, I love you.’ That’s how I woke her up in the morning, I remember distinctly,” he reiterated. “I don’t know how I remember because I was really drunk.”

“Sometimes though it is, it takes a little liquid courage to let the ol’ walls down,” Clarkson added in support. 

It’s no surprise that the That ’70s Show actor used a country song to emphasize his feelings on this milestone night as he has been a known fan of the genre for several years. 

The couple has been spotted numerous times sporting their cowboy hats, flannels and cowboy boots at Stagecoach, California’s massive country music festival. They have even had the chance to share the stage with superstars like Lee Brice, Thomas Rhett, HARDY and more. 

Kutcher has also attended a number of award shows including the 2012 American Country Music Awards when he presented Miranda Lambert the award for Female Vocalist of the Year.

As further proof of his love for country music and the artists, he recruited a few of his country music friends, Kenny Chesney and Thomas Rhett to help him prepare for the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon with Peloton.

The artists joined Kutcher in 2022 as part of the 10-week, 16-episode series, Our Future Selves with Ashton Kutcher.

His run with Chesney featured some of the country star’s biggest hits. 

“One of the greatest of all time, Mr. Kenny Chesney! It was an honor to run beside one of my idols and learn what motivates him,” he wrote, previewing the episode on social media.

The eight-time Entertainer of the Year was thrilled to join Kutcher in his marathon training journey, even though he’s never run a marathon himself. 

“I have never ran a marathon. What he’s doing is very inspiring. To get there, it’s a journey, it’s a grind,” Chesney acknowledged. “I’m very proud of him. I’m proud to be part of it.” 

Ashton Kutcher’s most recent project featured him in the starring role of Netflix’s new romantic comedy, Your Place or Mine. The movie, which also stars Reese Witherspoon, became available on the streaming service on February 10, 2023.
