Matraca Berg is the kind of songwriter who is best known for the hits that other artists have had with her songs, but no one does her stuff any better than she does. This year, Matraca released her own version of "You and Tequila" on her latest album, The Dreaming Fields,her fifth. We were delighted to find that she had also made a video for "You and Tequila".
Deana Carter co-wrote "You and Tequila" and recorded her own version back in 2004. Interestingly, Matraca got her first big break as a songwriter in 1997 when Deana had a major hit with Matraca's "Stawberry Wine", which went on to win song of the year from the CMA. Here is the video.
We can't stop now, for an extra bonus video this week, we found a nice live version of "Strawberry Wine" by Matraca.
