Cold Blooded Country: A Halloween Mixtape
Filed under: Mixtapes | Posted by:

Happy Halloween! We decided to put together a little mixtape for the day and came up with a collection of creepy, old murder ballads. With lines like “She never spoke another word, I only beat her more, Until the ground around me within her blood did flow”,  who knew country could be so gruesome? Or as Jenna put it “WHAT?! I need to actually start paying attention to the lyrics of some of these old songs.” So pop these tunes in the old stereo and enjoy them…while you still can (dun dun dun).
