84 Sad, Slow, and/or Heart-Tugging Songs from 2017

When the weather finally turns cold, one of my favorite things to do is to find a nice bottle of whiskey, build a fire outside, and listen to sad, slow, emotional, heart-tugging songs. You know the kind of tunes that that make you close your eyes and wail along when you’re a couple drinks in.  The tunes that talk you in to having one more drink and stay by the fire just a little longer.  The tunes that may or may not put a tear in your eye, make you yell the lyrics or put goosebumps on your arm. 

There’s something so specially about a song that can impart such strong emotions on the listener and are no doubt our favorite kind of songs!   So we’ve put together a playlist of our favorite sad, slow, and/or heart-tugging songs from 2017. Enjoy, or don’t 🙂 !
