MP3 of the Day: Miss Leslie & Her Juke Jointers

It seems for every great female country singer, there's a man who has invented a new way to break her heart, be it by leaving or simply not returning her desires. The latter is the case on Miss Leslie's HPMA-nominated

"Between the Whiskey and the Wine."

This song will make your heart ache. This is traditional country all the way, complete with whining guitar that'll pulls at the heartstrings. Vocally, Miss Leslie takes a page from prominent country artist like Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton, using her powerful vocals to add conviction to the lyrics. Though this is a story that everyone can relate to, they're just words - it's Miss Leslie's voice, which leans more towards gospel at times, that makes the "Whiskey" so damn believable.
