Somehow, the song only peaked at #9 on country radio back in 2009, but it did go on to win an ACM Award for Song of the Year, along with two Grammy nominations.
Is it the best country song of all time? Who knows, it’s hard to say. But if one thing’s for sure, when that song comes on, it has the power to instantly grab your attention, stop you in your tracks and remind what truly great country music really is.
So in my book, yeah, it’s one of the best ever.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
