Deana Carter's super-hit single was just released and is completely intoxicating.  

The debut album for Deana Carter, "Did I Shave My Legs For This", was originally launched in the UK, but failed to chart due to the label folding just under a year later. 

Re-released in the US, her single "Strawberry Wine" soared to the top of the charts in 1996 reaching the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country Chart and securing her six nominations during the 1997 Country Music Association Awards. 

Up against talented acts like George Strait, Pam Tillis, Tim McGraw, and Faith Hill, Carter surprised everyone when she won Single Of The Year and Song Of The Year for her sensational hit.  

Certified 5x Platinum, her superstar album served as a rocket for her career. Not only would she shoot out more hits as an artist, but she would also receive tremendous recognition as a songwriter; penning hits like "You and Tequila" by Kenny Chesney

Watch Deana Carter as she wins Single Of The Year and then performs her chart-topper in the videos below!

LYRICS BELOW

He was working through college
On my Grandpa's farm
I was thirsting for knowledge
And he had a car

Yeah, I was caught somewhere between
A woman and a child
One restless summer
We found love, growing wild

On the banks of the river, on a well beaten path
It's funny how those memories they last

Like strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh, bittersweet
The green on the vine like strawberry wine

I still remember
When thirty was old
My biggest fear was September
When he had to go

A few cards and letters and one long distance call
We drifted away like the leaves in the fall
But year after year, I come back to this place
Just to remember the taste

Of strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh, bittersweet
The green on the vine like strawberry wine

The fields have grown over now, years since they've seen a plow
There's nothing time hasn't touched
Is it really him or the loss of my innocence
I've been missing so much? Yeah

Strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh, bittersweet
And green on the vine

Like strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh, bittersweet
The green on the vine like strawberry wine

Strawberry wine
Strawberry wine
