Our Favorite Country Drinking Songs

On December 5, 1933, America had a big reason to hoist a glass skyward—that day marked the end of the Prohibition Era. Beginning in mid-January 1920 and lasting nearly 13 years, Prohibition laws outlawed the manufacture and transporting of all alcoholic beverages. It wasn’t illegal to drink ’em if you had ’em (and illegal activity flourished, besides). But 77 years ago this week, you could come out of hiding and raise one with a pal at the corner tavern—which is really the whole point, isn’t it?

In honor of the anniversary, here on tap are country’s top tunes about tippling (in our humble opinion).
