Drinking-Sheryl Crow (Warner Brothers)

From one of the best Country albums of the year, a pure blooded song about one of the two definitive topics of Country music songs. This here became one of my all time favorites the very first time I heard it last June. I’ve played it bunches since then and am still smiling every time I turn it on. I wouldn’t necessarily rate it higher than the classic drinkin’ songs by Merle and Willie and them guys, but it can certainly hold it’s own on the major league playing field with ’em.
