We love when Blake Shelton covers classic country songs because they are always amazing! Blake's cover of Johnny Paycheck's "Georgia In A Jug" was nothing less than spectacular! 

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!

Check out the video to hear Blake Shelton's cover of Johnny Paycheck's, "Georgia In A Jug", and you'll be glad you did!

Mason jars on the dresser
Filled with quarters and dollars savin em for our trip around the world
But now you've changed your tune
There'll be no honeymoon
So I'm going there without you girl

I'm going down to Mexico in a glass of tequila
Going down to Purto Rico in a bottle of rum
Going to Honolulu in a mai tai mug
Then I'm coming back home to
Georgia in a jug.

We'll never ride that bus to Mexico City
It's a pity we'll never sail our ship into Waikiki and
We'll never share that brick suburban home
Today I'm taking that money out of the jar
Tonight I'll buy my ticket down at the corner bar

I'm going down to Mexico in a glass of tequila
Going down to Purto Rico in a bottle of rum
Going to Honolulu in a mai tai mug
Then I'm coming back home to
Georgia in a jug.
