Old No. 7

Album: Tears, Lies & Alibis (2010)
  • Shelby Lynne's "Old No.7" refers to Jack Daniel's charcoal mellowed Tennessee Whiskey - her poison of choice on her Tears, Lies & Alibis album. She sings: "But baby, oh baby, I'm going, yes going crazy. Please help me make it a double Old #7."

    In reality, it was the Old No. 7 that was making Lynne a bit crazy. "Mean as hell!" she described herself. "That's why I got off the stuff." We got a taste of her cantankerous side in our 2012 interview with Shelby Lynne.
