The 20 Best Country Songs About Wine

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," Toby Keith asked us to raise our "Red Solo Cup," Luke Bryan enjoys counting margarita and pretty much everyone in Nashville nowadays croons about downing a shot of tequila.

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 sipping a glass of wine. Sit back, grab your favorite champagne, chardonnay, or bottle of red and listen to our playlist while you're drinkin'. While there are tons of songs out there perfect for the wino in your life — "Champagne Supernova" by Oasis, "Red Red Wine" by UB40, "Blood Red Wine" by the Rolling Stones, and "Elderberry Wine" by Elton John, these are all of our favorites.
