Country Covers of Classic Country Songs (Part 1)

Country Covers of Classic Country Songs (Part 1)
Can’t think of a better place to start than with the amazing Chris Stapleton who is a throwback to the great voices of Country music. Here he takes a classic by one of the celebrated singer songwriters of Country Music, ironically though he didn’t write this one…but what a fantastic song. And no far as I know they aren't related.
“Tennessee Whiskey” by Chris Stapleton, written by Linda Hargrove and Dean Dillon.

First was the original, Dec. 24, 1988 by Keith Whitley, #1 on US Hot Country Songs (Billboard).Next Alison Krauss hit #3 in 1995 and then Ronan Keating in 1999 where it hit #1 in the UK, Ireland, and New Zealand. Personally I came to this song through Alison Krauss, how about you?
