The biggest event of the year in country was when Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake tore it down at the CMA Awards singing Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” and JT’s “Drink You Away.” Rumors of Justin making a country album have been going around for a while and now he just released “Drink You Away” to country radio. Word also has it he purchased land and is building a home in Nashville. I’ve had a mancrush on JT since he started doing the history of rap with Jimmy Fallon so we’ll welcome you to country with open arms! Bring it on!!
If you haven’t heard “Drink You Away” in it’s original version from Justin’s 2013 album The 20/20 Experience, check it out…
He’s a man of many talents. Here’s one of my favorites from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where Jimmy and Justin rap it out!
