tuesday topics: six. best country songs

August 8, 2017

i stayed up late last night going over the songs in my collection, trying to whittle it to the six. i was at it again this morning, scouring lists. waylon and willie should be on here. hank. randy or george or clint. tim and faith. dolly or patsy. reba. i should've picked one singer, like garth, and made yall choose six by that one artist. that would've been a shit ton easier. in the end, i went through my list of the best hundred songs and pulled six country ones i liked most off that.

wolves. garth brooks.

i'm gonna love you through it. martina mcbride.

fire away. chris stapleton.

pour me. trick pony.

here's a quarter. travis tritt.

the song remembers when. trisha yearwood.

what country songs do you like best? share them with me!


  1. Good choices here! I love Trisha and Martina quite a bit. I'm glad you were able to narrow your list down!
    The Beth Next Door

  2. I couldn't link up with this one because I'm not a country music fan anymore. All of my picks would have been from the early 90s. Haha! I do love that Trisha Yearwood song! And Ain't Going Down by Garth would be on my list for sure.

  3. I'm not a fan of country music, so I'm only familiar with 2 of these. Interesting list, though (I YouTubed many of them.)

  4. Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground by Willie Nelson is my all time favorite country song. I still have a warm place in my heart for Garth and George Strait.

  5. Pancho and Lefty - Nelson and Haggard
    The Highwayman - The Highwaymen
    You Were Always on My Mind - Nelson
    Jolene - Parton
    Never Had It So Good - Mary Chapin Carpenter
    Jackson - Cash and Cash
