Country music often gets a bad wrap from those who aren’t fans of it. What we don’t get though it why those haters haven’t given it a chance. Perhaps they just didn’t know where to start. Reasonable enough—until now! Because we’ve got a barrel of country songs that’ll have you singing a new tune in no time!
Luke Bryan “I Don’t Want This Night to End”
“Get drunk on your kiss.” Who wouldn’t fall for this line over and over again? What’s great about this one is that it’s a mixture of old school country from the ‘90s with a more modern sound that makes it more than a sappy love song. It has some fun energy to it that’s undeniable.
Taylor Swift "Teardrops on My Guitar"
Even before she was the mainstream pop star she is today, she was always singing about some boy who broke her heart. Only when she did it in her country tune, she had this genuine heartfelt way to her words and while she's gone from our scene now—we still love her older stuff.
Rascal Flatts “Bless the Broken Road”
Are you ready to get emotional? A gorgeous vocal performance teamed with some of the most endearing lyrics—you’ll fall in love.
Dixie Chicks “Not Ready To Make Nice”
As a girl who grew up on country and then found herself into pop punk, this song blends the two. Musically this is a beautifully crafted piece of music, but at its core it’s straight up punk rock thanks to its message.
Garth Brooks "Friends in Low Places"
What kind of list would this be without this man? Responsible for making country mainstream back in the ‘90s, there are a million and one songs of his that’d make you a fan but this is number one for numerous reasons including it’s insane sing-along factor.
Shania Twain “Honey I’m Home”
Speaking of mainstream, where Garth left off this woman picked up with her high energy deliveries especially this tune from her big 1997 album
Come On Over.
Dolly Parton "Jolene"
Those not into country music are well aware of who this queen is but rarely do they care to learn what she’s capable of doing on the mic. Big mistake! This song is one of the best delivered by the icon!
Sam Hunt “Leave The Night On”
If his looks don’t get you, this acoustic gem will. Sultry and sweet all at the same time, you cannot walk away without humming this one.
George Strait “I Cross My Heart”
Before I knew what falling in love was, I felt it because of this song. One of the most romantic ballads ever.
Carrie Underwood “Before He Cheats”
A little poppy at times, but when it all boils down this is a badass country track! With a stellar chorus that makes you want to sing along at the top of your lungs—yes!
