“Tennessee Whiskey” is a classic country song that tells the story of a man who compares his love for his woman to his love for Tennessee whiskey. George Jones’ version of the song, recorded in 1983, made it a true classic thanks to its soulful and bluesy sound. However, it was first recorded by David Allan Coe in 1981.
In 2015, a performance of the song by Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake at the CMA Awards brought it back into the spotlight and inspired new artists to cover it. Clark Beckham and Madison Ryann were among those artists, and their duet of “Tennessee Whiskey” has since garnered over three million views.
Clark’s soulful vocals and electric guitar skills, combined with Madison’s infectious harmony and captivating solo, create a performance that pays tribute to George Jones’ legacy in a manner that would make the country legend proud.
Despite being over 40 years old, “Tennessee Whiskey” remains a beloved classic that has stood the test of time. Its timeless lyrics and soulful sound continue to inspire new generations of country music fans and artists alike.
