Country music is known for its drinking songs. Garth Brooks knows the power of “Two Pina Coladas” and a good “Beer Run,” George Jones and Alan Jackson told us all about “White Lightning,” and Toby Keith asked us to raise our “Red Solo Cup.”
And while there’s an endless supply of tunes from country artists about good ‘ole Tennessee Whiskey, there’s also plenty of country songs about wine. Sit back, grab a bottle of wine and listen to our favorite songs about the delicious drink.
