Music Monday: Used to spend…

This meme was created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song you really like and share it on, you guessed it, Monday.

I stumbled onto this meme through Mischenko @ReadRantRock&Roll. I love music and I love books, but I don’t always get a chance to make full playlists that pair music and books. Music Monday will let me do this whenever at all possible, one song at a time.

I am starting this meme on the blog with my absolute favorite Chris Stapleton song “Tennessee Whiskey.” It’s summer. Temperatures have already been in the three digits for the past few days and something as “smooth as Tennessee Whiskey” and “sweet as strawberry wine” is what I need during these warm summer evenings. I’d really like to see him live one day!


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 know, I know. This book just keeps popping up everywhere on the blog but hear me out. It’s the perfect pairing for the song’s message that love is like a drug. Grace tries to make it clear how much she loathes Ewan, but he is completely in love with her, willing to do what he must to stay by her side despite his past decisions. He confesses he would burn down all of London searching for her. Grace is Ewan’s drug. It’s a friends-to-lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers second chance romance with extreme groveling. (Review)

  1. I’m so glad you did MM! Gosh, I love this one. It’s arguably my favorite song by Chris, and it was one of the first I heard. He has such an amazing sound, and I’m not even a big country fan. 😊 Thanks for linking up with me!
