There are a TON of things that seem to go hand-in-hand with country music: summertime, cute girls, alcohol, breakups, makeups, this list could go on for a while. Something that I have picked up on, maybe it is because it is something I enjoy, is the constant mention of Jack Daniels, or whiskey in general. SO, in this addition of Country Playlist, I am dedicating it to everyone’s favorite, JD.
1. “Jack Daniels” – Eric Church
I mean, this should be enough said. The Chief has his own line of Jack Daniels, so it was only right for him to have a song about the lovely drink too. While any Eric Church song is a good one, sometimes you need a little reminder about what Jack can do.
2. “Hey Whiskey” – Smithfield
I discovered this song thanks to The Highway (surprise, surprise) and it is something that I feel a lot of people can relate to. It is also really catchy.
3. “Tennessee Whiskey” – Chris Stapleton
You may have seen this song around thanks to a dad’s cover posted by his daughter. But Chris Stapleton is a mastermind with music, and this song proves that just as much.
4. “Whiskey Girl” – Toby Keith
Going what is probably now considered old school (and this video was posted seven years ago which kind of scares me) Toby Keith is a country music king. Between songs like “Beer For My Horses” and “Angry American” he pretty much sums up ‘Merica.
5. “Sunshine and Whiskey” – Frankie Ballard
Frankie Ballard just has an awesome vibe to all of his music. I wish I could take this one literally though, I would love to be chilling on a beach right now.
I could probably keep going with this list, but I try to keep the playlists short. Although, I have ONE MORE that needs to make this list:
6. “Whiskey in My Water” – Tyler Farr
I have loved Tyler Farr ever since I went to his first CD release party here in Jersey, and he continues to be one of my all-time favorite artists. His voice just makes me so happy!
OKAY! That is IT! Thanks for another round of Country Playlist, until next time…. which probably will not be long from now 🙂
