142: Tennessee Whiskey

I came upon this video on Youtube featuring Nashville singer Kayla Kroh and I cannot stop watching and listening to it:

Kayla Kroh is amazing! This particular video went up on Youtube in December 2022, so I am guessing Kayla is about 25 years old here. As for her voice and soul, well, they are timeless. REMARKABLE that these two – vocalist Kayla Kroh and guitarist DØVYDAS had never met before the moment of performing this song together. Here are the lyrics to "Tennessee Whiskey" (Kayla sings a version of these)


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's 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


Mind you they appear to be performing in what appears to be something like a mall in Nashville. Incredibly, it looks like world-famous Ryman Auditorium outside the window behind them. For my money, center stage at Ryman is where they belong. Fortunately, Youtube magic makes this performance available over and over and over again. Smooth. Sweet. Warm. Wow, Kayla!
