weekly playlist #28: all about the south

 

As The Cadillac Three said quite succinctly – it’s all about the south. This week’s playlist is full of southern celebration: from Hicktown to God’s Country and everything in between.

 

This week’s highlights are some of my all-time favourites. All About The South is the inspiration for the whole collection, and one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite bands. You all know I adore TC3 and their swampy, boozy and bluesy variety of country – and this collaboration with Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Mike Eli fits right in.  I can also confirm it is hella fun to roll your windows down and sing along to.

 

God’s Country is one of my favourite recent hits. I remember hearing it for the first time and being blown away by the sound, the imagery and the emotion it evoked. It was a visceral reaction, and the song still hits hard even now.

 

This week’s final highlight is Southern Ways, simply because it oozes that low, slow, summer nostalgia and as the weather tends towards winter now, I am fully on board with heading back to those southern ways!
