It all starts with Tequila. Spirits are no stranger to country songs but Tequila doesn't always get included. Beer and Whiskey tend to be the go to beverages in country lyrics. However there are a few songs that mention the liquor made from the Blue Agave plant. The latest big hit climbing the current country charts is thanks to Dan +Shay, simply called Tequila it is sure to go to number one. It is a soulful tune basically claiming that they can forget and move on until they "taste tequila". Then memories of this forgotten love returns.

Two more songs that are consider tequila anthems are Joe Nichols - "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off".

And my all time favorite which is Kenny Chesney teaming up with Grace Potter for "You and Tequila."

As we head into the Memorial Day weekend to officially kick off summer 2018 let's be sure to give a shout out to Tequila Tunes that have played a role in country music.
