How does a singer whose most famous song opens with “We don’t smoke marijuana in Muskogee”, end up almost releasing his own line of marijuana from beyond the grave? The truth, like country music’s own relationship with illicit substances, is complicated - for country music isn’t all godliness and grace. In fact, a 2017 study found that country contained more drug references than any other genre.

Some are more brazen - or blazin’ - than others. For every hazy reference to wildflowers, seeds and stems, there’s a straight up call to arms; “When the straight and narrow gets a little too straight roll up a joint,” sings Kacey Musgraves on ‘Follow Your Arrow.’

As ever, country music’s real skill when it comes to songs about gettinghigh is the ability to elevate often truthfully mundane realities into something capable of relieving the mundane truth of everyday life. Self-medicating the pain of broken hearts, domestic boredom and bereavements, our ordinary lyrical subjects disappear into a purple haze and emerge fables, warnings, lessons, legends.

Hold on to your bucket hats; here’s Holler’s pick of the Best Country Songs About Getting High.
