Song #7 On My MP3 Player - 16 Days by Whiskeytown

'16 Days' by Whiskeytown is the seventh song on my MP3 player and is featured on Whiskeytown's 1997 major label debut titled Strangers Almanac. Whiskeytown was an alternative country band from Raleigh, North Carolina that featured Ryan Adams on vocals.

Alternative country is a term used to describe bands that are influenced by country music but produce a style of music that has the country sound mixed with other genres like rockabilly, hard rock, or punk. Uncle Tupelo is a good example of alternative country. I'm a fan of this genre and you can't go wrong with Whiskeytown's Strangers Almanac.

'16 Days' is on my MP3 player because it is a damn good song. Ryan Adams and Caitlin Cary do a great job on vocals. If you like songs that tell a story then '16 Days' is right up your alley. However '16 Days' is a story of a relationship that's falling apart. Maybe it's over. Who knows. All I can tell you is that '16 Days' is awesome, and I've included a live performance below, so enjoy today's song.
