“Tennessee Whiskey” by Chris Stapleton

Whiskey, or just drinking, is the best way to enjoy country music in my opinion. Also, Linda Hargrove and Dean Dillon, the song’s authors, compared love to the smoothness of “Tennessee Whiskey.” The song was initially recorded by David Allan Coe in 1981, but Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake’s performance at the CMA Awards with Timberlake propelled it to new heights.
