Because it’s Kentucky Derby Week and this song, performed here by the Commonwealth’s own Ben Sollee for Woodford Reserve, just gives you all the Derby feels.
No but really, one of my very favorite parts of Derby Day is when the entire crowd joins in unison to sing My Old Kentucky Home. If it’s your first time heading to the races, get ready to be a little overwhelmed with Kentucky-pride when everyone drops the “Weep No More My Lady…” line.
Until then, put this on repeat and brush up on the lyrics.
