Mid-February Battle of the Bands
It’s still the month of LOVE, so I am using a song that fits in with the theme.
Wikipedia tells us this about the song:
"Tennessee Whiskey" is the title of a country song written by Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove. It was originally recorded by American country music artist David Allan Coe for his album of the same name Tennessee Whiskey, whose version peaked at number 77 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1981. George Jones' 1983 version of the song was included on his album Shine On, and reached number 2 on the Hot Country Singles chart. The song has been covered by several artists, including Chris Stapleton, whose version was performed at the Country Music Association Awards with Justin Timberlake, and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
I have listened to many many covers of this song. I believe I have found two worthy contenders for you to consider. I know who my favorite is, but which will be yours?
Contender One: Chris Stapleton
Contender Two: Whiskey Lane
As usual, cast your vote for your favorite of the two in the comments below. Voting will remain open until Sunday, Feb 25 @ 3pm EST. Results will be posted on Monday Feb 26.
This post is part of a blog hop. It would be splendid if you visited the other participants and gave them support as well. You can find a current list on Stephen’s blog (you can also request to join the battle of the bands blog hop there as well - we'd LOVE to have you join in the fun!).
