“I used to spend my nights out in a bar room
liquor was the only love I’d known
but you rescued me from reaching for the bottom
brought me back from being too far gone

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
you’re as sweet as strawberry wine
you’re as warm as a glass of Brandy
and I stay stoned on your love all the time

I looked for love in all the same old places
found the bottom of the bottle’s always dry
but when you poured out your heart
I didn’t waste it
‘cause there’s nothing
like your love to get me high

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
you’re as sweet as strawberry wine
you’re as warm as a glass of Brandy
and I stay stoned on your love all the time
I stay stoned on your love all the time”.

Tennessee Whiskey was originally recorded by American country music artist David Allan Coe for his album of the same name Tennessee Whiskey. It peaked at number 77 on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1981. The song was covered by American country music artist George Jones, whose version was released in August 1983 as the third single from his album Shine On. Jones’ version reached number two on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in November 1983 and number-one on the RPM Country Tracks chart in Canada. Coe joined Jones onstage to sing a chorus on the song at the inaugural Farm Aid in 1985. It remained a mainstay in Jones’ live set, with the singer often substituting the name of whatever city or town he was in for “Tennessee” in the second chorus.
On November 4, 2015, Chris Stapleton performed the song, a cover version from his debut album Traveller, at the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards as a duet with Justin Timberlake. The performance was described as “stunning” and “career-making” by music publications. Based solely on two days sales after the broadcast, it reached number-one on the Hot Country Songs chart, and number 23 on Billboard Hot 100, selling 131,000 copies. It peaked at number 20 the following week, selling a further 118,000 copies. It was certified Platinum by the RIAA on May 4, 2016, and reached over a million in sales in the US in January 2017. It has sold 1.2 million copies in the US as of June 2017.
Deana Martin gave “Tennessee Whiskey” a new beat when she recorded it for her 2016 album Swing Street. A Youtube video featuring Kris Jones at the wheel of his pickup truck, recorded by his daughter Dayla, went viral and has gained over 35 million views. It led to a performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In 2017 Stan Walker and Parson James released a version as a single”.
