81 Sad, Slow, and/or Heart-Tugging Texas/Red Dirt Tunes from 2016

One of my favorite traditions during the holidays is to find a nice bottle of whiskey, light a fire outside, and listen to the saddest songs I’ve come across that year.  You know, the kind of tunes that that make you close your eyes and wail along to when you’re a couple drinks in. There’s something about a sad or slow song that’s really special to us, especially when it’s paired with whiskey, a fire, and the outdoors.  So we’ve put together a playlist of our favorite sad, slow, and/or heart-tugging songs from 2016 and thought we’d share it with you guys. 

Enjoy (or don’t) 🙂 !
