Proud Canadian boy Brendan Gallagher has spent his share of small town summer nights jamming out to country hits by a bonfire.
Growing up in Western Canada, Gallagher learned that there's no moment - from driving to the rink to chilling by a lake - that can't be improved with an acoustic guitar and a little twang. Ahead of the team's trip to Nashville, we asked the Canadiens' resident country expert to curate a playlist to help set the mood for the boys in Music City.
No surprise, Gally went all out. With 40 songs to choose from, this exhaustive mix is sure to please everyone from country newbies to honky tonk purists.
Note that some tracks may contain explicit lyrics. Listener discretion is advised.
