Originally released by Johnny Paycheck in 1978, "Georgia In A Jug" appeared on his album, Take This Job and Shove It. The song was very successful, and came in at #20 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. In 2003, before Blake Shelton was a household name, Blake released his second album titled, The Dreamer. On that album was his rendition of the classic song, "Georgia In A Jug". We like to think the song had something to do with his album peaking at #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Way to go, Blake!
The song tells the story of a man who has decided to take his honeymoon money and spend it on a vacation for himself. His lover left him, and he says, "But now you've changed your tune / There'll be no honeymoon / So I'm going there without you girl". He goes on to talk about his vacation plans, saying he's going to Mexico, Puerto Rico and Honolulu. We think that sounds pretty fun, enjoy!
