Kids today do not understand the struggle of having to unwrap tape from a hungry tape player, then not being able to find a pencil or pen. Or, putting coins on the needle to try and prevent LP skipping. Or having a collection of 45s that cannot be played because you lost the spindle adapter.
A post on the whiskey thread earlier today got me thinking about whiskey songs other than Willie Nelson’s great Whiskey River. Three that may be newer, yet are deep in that same current.
I know almost nothing about country music, but that Tennessee Whiskey song is a good one. I ran across it through this amateur cover/sing along:

- that “cum” in the title…
- even though I have been an avid listener or heave, thrash, death and other deviated musical genres, there’s something about his voice that I find stressful. Man, calm down and stop shouting.
