There are waaaaaaaay too many covers of “Tennessee Whiskey” on YouTube.
A LOT of them are really, really, bad.
However, every so often you stumble across one that does this classic song justice. Everybody has their favorite version (David Allan Coe, George Jones) of the song which was originally released in 1981, and while nobody covered it quite like Chris Stapleton, this dude did a damn good job.
His name is DeAndre Nico, and his version went viral after he performed it in a barbershop (apparently this guy was eventually on The Voice, but I don’t watch that show because I think it sucks).
Watch DeAndre light the room up.
Imagine getting your haircut here? Sure beats the hell out of whatever Great Clips you’re going to.
And while were on the topic, of great “Tennessee Whiskey” have you seen Chris Klafford, AKA the Swedish Chris Stapleton?
