In Nashville, Record Labels Also Sell Vodka

Country music and drinking go way back. Fair? So maybe it's no surprise that one of country music's premiere record labels has gotten into the liquor business.

Big Machine Records, home to artists including Taylor Swift, Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett and Brantley Gilbert, has launched Big Machine Platinum Filtered Premium Vodka. The stuff is the real deal, too. The high-octane spirit is being distilled in small batches at Tenn South Distillery in Lynnville, TN, a tiny town of less than 300 about one hour south of Nashville.

"Over the past 11 years Big Machine has provided the soundtrack to millions of fans worldwide," notes label CEO Scott Borchetta (pictured) in a statement. "With the launch of Big Machine Premium Vodka, we are now offering a superior product that perfectly complements the music we take such great pride in."

Customers are being encouraged to "Pour It On…Turn It Up…Lean In…Or Lean Back…And Indulge," per the brand's catchy tag line. If that sounds good, just prep for some travel. Those looking to wet their whistles will have to make their way to the Middle Tennessee region to get their hands on it for now.
