Tennessee has brought the world some astonishing sites and impressive individuals. For one, the Volunteer state gifted us the entertainer, storyteller and humanitarian Morgan Freeman. We don’t know what any of us would do without that heavenly voice portraying the world’s most moving narratives.
Be that as it may, Morgan Freeman wasn’t the lone extraordinary in the film business to emerge from Tennessee, Quentin Tarantino likewise calls the state home. Have you at any point known about the films… Reservoir Dogs? Pulp Fiction? Inglorious Bastards? Hateful Eight? Django?
However, it’s not just the rich, popular and insanely gifted… Tennessee is home to Jack Daniel’s Whiskey. Which, interesting story regarding this… the gent who came up with Jack Daniels… Jack Daniels himself… actually died after getting frustrated at a broken safe and kicking it. He kicked it so hard that the damage ultimately led to an infection which eventually led to him biting the dust. The moral of the story? Don’t get mad and kick safes. I bet Quentin knows some safe crackers that might have helped, fictionally speaking.
Also, one really fascinating point… we know… we know. We are simply loaded with them today, right? Along these lines, in the event that you’ve at any point sipped that very sweet neon green fluid called Mountain Dew… you would be charmed to realize the beverage really started in the territory of Tennessee as something pleasant to eliminate the bite from whiskey.
And, while we certainly aren’t encouraging drinking… a good pairing for today’s read on Tennessee would be Jack Daniels, over the rocks with a splash or three of Mountain Dew.
