Recorded in Nashville at John and Martina McBride's Blackbird Studio, Dave Stewart's The Blackbird Diaries features a band of studio musicians who include guitarist Tom Bukovac, drummer Chad Cromwell, bassist Michael Rhodes, steel guitarist Dan Dugmore and pianist Mike Rojas. Stewart decided to record his project in Nashville after visiting the McBrides. "I ended up just falling in love with the whole idea of Nashville and the whole idea of recording there," he told Billboard magazine. "Two weeks after I met John and Martina, I flew back and started recording the album, but I forgot that I didn't have any songs, so I had to write them all on the spot."
This closing track features The Secret Sisters, who are a new-age traditional Country music duo, consisting of real-life sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers.
Stewart quickly wrote the track after he realized he hadn't penned a Country song for the album. "I couldn't believe I'd been in Nashville with all these great country players and didn't write one country song, so 15 minutes later I came out with 'Country Wine,'" he told Billboard magazine. "This is how Nashville made me feel. We all sang it and played it live together and that was the end of the album. It's like a sweet little end to the story."
