Sunday Sesh: The Tennessee Episode
Guess what, boners? I’m writing this post from Tennessee. Yes. That Tennessee. You know what that means. We doin’ this Tennessee style. Get in here to give me recs for a Mountain-Smokin’, chicken-fryin’, lake-cruisin’ playlist of Tennessee hits.
Prior to this trip, everything I knew about Tennessee I learned from the Space Ghost Coast to Coast episode Kentucky Nightmare (yes, I know that that episode is technically about Kentucky, but they’re the same place, so just go with it, Scully). That knowledge amounted to whiskey (only Irishmen and weirdos spell it whisky) and the friendship shared between sharks and bears. Oh, there’s also something called the Gran Ol’ Opry here, but the less said about that, the better.
But, friends, let me tell you, there’s a lot more to Tennessee than those things. As I sit here in a lakeside chalet in the booming metropolis of Dandridge, I’m happy to report that there are at least three more things in the great Volunteer State. There’s a river named after some French broad. There’s a pretty cool mountain range that gets all smoky like the Misty Mountains in The Hobbit. There’s also a giant resort called Dollywood. Oooh, buddy. Dollywood!
Needless to say (but I’m saying it anyway, for your edification), Tennessee is a magical place. ToiletAdvisor gives Dandridge 5 out of 5 stars.
But, there was one critical fault in this trip. I failed to secure a proper Tennessee metal playlist for the voyage before departing Chapel Thrill. So disappointed with my momentous failure was Dr. Mrs. W. that she wrested control of our musical selection away from my clammy paws. TRAGEDY!
So this is why I’ve gathered you all here today, to crowd-source an adequate Tennessee playlist (and to proselytize you about the wonders of Ms. Parton’s resort). In the comments below, share your choice for a Tennessee playlist. I’ll start.
