Valentine's Day is 10 short days away, and lovebirds around the world will have a whole day (or at least an evening) filled with chocolate, Champagne and romance. But Valentine's Day is nothing to look forward to for the broken-hearted. If you don't have someone to love, Valentine's Day has a way of constantly reminding you of that fact.

But remember, you're not alone, and what better way to enjoy Valentine's Day then by drowning your sorrow? Alcohol and broken hearts go way back -- they're friends that will never be parted, and no music genre sings the praises of alcohol and heartbreak better than country music.

So if you find yourself sad and lonely this year, get down to your local watering hole, order your favorite drink and enjoy this playlist of great country songs that mix sadness and booze. It may bring a tear to your eye even if you decide not to drink.

What's your favorite country song that mixes alcohol and heartbreak?
