Randall King and his girlfriend Brittany Warthan teamed up for an acoustic duet of Kenny Chesney’s “You and Tequila” that I can’t get enough of.
The song was originally written by Matraca Berg and Deana Carter, and released as the fourth single from Kenny’s 2010 album Hemingway’s Whiskey. His original also features a guest vocal from Grace Potter, who you might know as the lead singer of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
It was also nominated for two Grammys for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012 and peaked at #3 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart.
I’ve always loved this song, and hearing the two of them sing it together with just an acoustic guitar is something special:
Randall most recently released his major label debut album, Shot Glass, that you definitely need to check out if you haven’t yet. It’s full of good, solid honky tonk country, and of course, we’d expect nothing less from the Texas native who often draws comparisons to George Strait with his smooth, pure and twangy vocals.
