CHRIS STAPLETON - ALTERNATIVE FIRST DANCE SONG


As wedding photographers we attend a lot of weddings and hear a lot of first dances! There are the usual ones such as Ed Sheeran and John Legend. However I know couples sometimes struggle to pick a first dance so I am going to post a few blogs with different song ideas for you to listen to and see if they take your fancy.

My second choice……Chris Stapleton - Tennessee Whiskey

I have chosen to put the live video up of Chris Stapleton singing Tennessee Whisky as its UNREAL!!! His voice blows my mind. Also the backing vocals are sung by his wife….Incredible stuff



Lyrics

I used to spend my nights out in a barroom
Liquor was the only love I've known
But you rescued me from reachin' for the bottom
And 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 honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time
I've looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of a bottle 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 honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You're as sweet as strawberry wine
You're as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey

Enjoy!
