The 40 best (and biggest!) country songs from the s

 

1 of 40

"If I Die Young," The Band Perry

"If I Die Young," The Band Perry

Frederick Breedon IV/FilmMagic

Released in June , “If I Die Young” is a poignant ballad about the tragic death of young people that was so impactful that it inspired fans to write the band with their own stories of loss and survival. The song was so relatable, in fact, that it hit #1 on both Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Adult Contemporary charts. 

 
"Mean," Taylor Swift

Royce DeGrie/FilmMagic

Before she was a global superstar and one of the richest women in the world, Taylor Swift was a songwriting prodigy with a pure voice and plucky lyrical sensibility. Her hit “Mean” strikes a chord with anyone that’s ever been bullied, and scored Swift two Grammys for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance that year.

"The House That Built Me," Miranda Lambert

"The House That Built Me," Miranda Lambert

Arguably one of the most tear-jerking songs of the past decade of any genre, Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me” was originally intended for her ex-husband Blake Shelton. Lambert snagged it away, and with that, created an emotional classic that can stir nostalgia in even the most cynical of souls. Following the song’s release, it was certified platinum and won Lambert a Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance.

"Drink In My Hand," Eric Church

Now a classic country drinking song, ’s “Drink In My Hand” was a killer introduction into the fiercely independent, hard-driving music of Eric Church. Clearly, this booze-friendly song resonated with fans — it marked Church’s first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. 

 
"Red Solo Cup," Toby Keith

Ethan Miller/Getty Images

Though it seems ridiculous that a song about a plastic cup could be so enduring, fans of Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” are legion. The music video alone, which boasts cameos from basketball legend Larry Bird, baseball icon Roger Clemens, and more stars, makes it a classic. And, of course, the 52 million views on YouTube sure don’t hurt, either. 

 

6 of 40

"Crazy Girl," Eli Young Band

"Crazy Girl," Eli Young Band

Tom Pennington/Getty Images

A Texas band with mostly regional success before “Crazy Girl,” this song catapulted the Eli Young Band into the national spotlight. In , it won Song of the Year at the ACM Awards, topped Billboard’s end-of-year chart, and was the band’s first platinum-selling single. 

 

7 of 40

"Springsteen," Eric Church

"Springsteen," Eric Church

Christopher Polk/Getty Images

Eric Church has long called rocker Bruce Springsteen his idol, and “Springsteen” is a truly fitting tribute. A nostalgic song centered around a fleeting teenage love, its sonic qualities and enduring relatability make “Springsteen” a classic.

"Drunk on You," Luke Bryan

"Drunk on You," Luke Bryan

In , Luke Bryan wasn’t yet the country juggernaut that he’d eventually become, but “Drunk On You” was the first clue that he was headed for super stardom. Bryan’s first top hit, “Drunk On You” has since sold more than 3 million copies. 

 

9 of 40

"Pontoon," Little Big Town

A country party classic that takes its name from a boat, “Pontoon” scored Little Big Town its first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in , along with a Grammy Award in for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. 

 

10 of 40

"Cruise," Florida Georgia Line

"Cruise," Florida Georgia Line

Mark Davis/Getty Images

However you feel about Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, the duo better known as Florida Georgia Line, there’s no denying that their hit “Cruise” is ridiculously catchy. A crossover hit that peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot chart, “Cruise” has been derided heavily by country music traditionalists for kicking off the “bro-country” wave. 

 

11 of 40

"Wagon Wheel," Darius Rucker

"Wagon Wheel," Darius Rucker

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images for American Giving Awards

Now a bar and karaoke classic, Darius Rucker’s cover of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel” is totally iconic. That could have something to do with the fact that its lyrics were co-written by legendary songwriter Bob Dylan, who penned the chorus decades before finishing the song with OCMS’s Ketch Secor in Rucker’s version came out 10 years later, and was a #1 hit that’s since been certified triple-platinum. 

 
"We Were Us," Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert

Jason Davis/Getty Images

Combining the star power and incredible talent of two of country music’s biggest hitmakers, “We Were Us” was a #1 hit, and won Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert a CMA Award in for Musical Event of the Year. 

 

13 of 40

"Follow Your Arrow," Kacey Musgraves

"Follow Your Arrow," Kacey Musgraves

Rick Diamond/Getty Images

Kacey Musgraves burst onto the scene in with “Follow Your Arrow,” a brilliantly written tune that’s all about staying true to yourself. With references to smoking marijuana and a message of LGBT acceptance, the song was controversial among some close-minded country fans but otherwise beloved. The following year, it won Song of the Year at the CMA Awards. 

 

14 of 40

"Two Black Cadillacs," Carrie Underwood

"Two Black Cadillacs," Carrie Underwood

Ethan Miller/Getty Images

Co-written by Underwood, Hillary Lindsey, and Josh Kear, “Two Black Cadillacs” isn’t exactly light, poppy radio fare. Still, it scored Underwood a massive hit and earned her heaps of critical acclaim thanks to its heavy subject matter and intense instrumentation. It’s a dark, brooding song about two women who team up to kill the man that’s doing them both wrong, one that’s a pretty stark contrast from much of Underwood’s earliest work. 

 

15 of 40

"Mine Would Be You," Blake Shelton

"Mine Would Be You," Blake Shelton

In , Blake Shelton secured his tenth number-one hit with “Mine Would Be You,” a mellow heartbreak ballad that’s since sold more than a million units and been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

"Bartender," Lady Antebellum

"Bartender," Lady Antebellum

A perfect going-out anthem, “Bartender” was written by Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood, and Charles Kelley alongside songwriter Rodney Clawson and released in In addition to the song’s chart success, it also inspired an iconic music video starring supermodel Kate Upton and actor Tony Hale. 

 

17 of 40

"Somethin' Bad," Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert

"Somethin' Bad," Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert

Ethan Miller/Getty Images

The two most powerful women in country music teamed up for “Somethin’ Bad,” a barn-burning anthem for bad girls everywhere in It quickly hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, and was ultimately one of the year’s top ten most-played tracks. 

 

18 of 40

"Turtles All The Way Down," Sturgill Simpson

"Turtles All The Way Down," Sturgill Simpson

Seth McConnell/The Denver Post via Getty Images

No one really expected a psychedelic country ballad to be one of the biggest songs of , but Sturgill Simpson made it happen with “Turtles All The Way Down,” an introspective anthem that involves a whole lot of LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, and cannabis. A critical success, Simpson proved with this song that it was possible to earn a massive fan base without pandering to country radio. 

 

19 of 40

"Cover Me Up," Jason Isbell

"Cover Me Up," Jason Isbell

David A. Smith/Getty Images

Arguably the most impactful song from Isbell’s solo stunner Southeastern, “Cover Me Up” is a deeply emotional track that explores Isbell’s journey of getting sober and falling in love with his wife, fellow artist Amanda Shires. It’s a beautifully timeless song, one that still earns Isbell a chorus of cheers every single time he performs “Cover Me Up” live. 

 

20 of 40

"Drink A Beer," Luke Bryan

"Drink A Beer," Luke Bryan

Chris Polk/ACMA/Getty Images for ACM

In , Luke Bryan released his massively popular album Crash My Party, and the rest is history. The standout song on that record is “Drink A Beer,” a deeply emotional ballad about coping with loss that was co-written by Chris Stapleton, who was still working behind the scenes as a songwriter at the time. 

 

21 of 40

"Girl in a Country Song," Maddie & Tae

"Girl in a Country Song," Maddie & Tae

Kyle Gustafson / For The Washington Post via Getty Images)

At the height of bro-country’s dominance on country radio, up-and-coming duo Maddie & Tae skewered the genre’s sacred cows with “Girl In A Country Song.” A direct criticism of songs that objectify and disrespect women, the catchy tune rocked to #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after its July release. 

 

22 of 40

"Girl Crush," Little Big Town

"Girl Crush," Little Big Town

Paul Warner/Getty Images

Even though it’s about being obsessed with a woman who stole your man, some country music listeners misunderstood Little Big Town’s hit “Girl Crush” and thought it was about two women falling in love. A minor controversy followed, but ultimately “Girl Crush” was a crossover hit for Little Big Town, peaking at #22 on the Billboard Hot  

 

23 of 40

"Buy Me A Boat," Chris Janson

"Buy Me A Boat," Chris Janson

Mindy Small/FilmMagic

The lead single from Chris Janson’s debut album, blue collar anthem “Buy Me A Boat” resonates with anyone who’s ever been tired of hearing that “money can’t buy happiness.” The song was so popular, in fact, that it even performed well on the Billboard Hot despite a decidedly redneck through line. 

 

24 of 40

"You Make It Easy," Jason Aldean

"You Make It Easy," Jason Aldean

Terry Wyatt/Getty Images

Even though it wasn’t one of his biggest chart hits, “You Make It Easy” is a showcase of Jason Aldean doing what he does best. Co-written by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, Morgan Wallen, and Jordan Schmidt, “You Make It Easy” inspired a dramatic three-part music video that runs 15 minutes long. 

 

25 of 40

Chris Stapleton, "Fire Away"

Chris Stapleton, "Fire Away"

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Blackbird

When Chris Stapleton exploded onto the country music scene as a solo artist in , he was already a well-known Nashville songwriter with multiple hits under his belt. Still, the bluesy, bearded Stapleton shot to the top of the charts with “Fire Away,” a tear-jerking ballad paired with an equally emotional music video that depicted a woman suffering from mental illness. 

 

26 of 40

"My Church," Maren Morris

"My Church," Maren Morris

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Billboard Magazine

Maren Morris got both a “hallelujah” and an “amen” with the release of her hit “My Church” that’s all about finding religion in country music. It won Morris a Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance the following year. 

 

27 of 40

"Blue Ain't Your Color," Keith Urban

"Blue Ain't Your Color," Keith Urban

Terry Wyatt/Getty Images

The smoldering fourth single from his smash album Ripcord, “Blue Ain’t Your Color” was a huge hit for Urban, charting #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and at #24 on the all-genre Billboard Hot  

 

28 of 40

"Tennessee Whiskey," Chris Stapleton

"Tennessee Whiskey," Chris Stapleton

John Shearer/Getty Images

Even fans who weren’t familiar with the versions of “Tennessee Whiskey” recorded by David Allan Coe and George Jones in the s were immediately obsessed with Stapleton’s bluesy, powerful take on the song co-written by Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove. After Stapleton performed the song on the CMA Awards, it was an instant crossover hit that’s since been certified Platinum six times over. 

 

29 of 40

"Mr. Misunderstood," Eric Church

"Mr. Misunderstood," Eric Church

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Blackbird

The title track of Church’s album, Church drops plenty of wisdom on “Mr. Misunderstood.” It’s also a truly interesting composition, with no chorus but the constant “Mr. Misunderstood” refrain functions as an anthem for anyone who feels a little jilted by society. 

 

30 of 40

"Hurricane," Luke Combs

"Hurricane," Luke Combs

Mickey Bernal/Getty Images

Luke Combs’s rocket-like ascent to the top of both the country charts and the all-genre Billboard Hot began with “Hurricane,” his debut single. Its seamless blend of Combs’s killer vocals and radio-friendly melody makes it almost seem like “Hurricane” was engineered in a lab for country success. 

 

31 of 40

"Dirt On My Boots," Jon Pardi

"Dirt On My Boots," Jon Pardi

John Shearer/Country Rising/Getty Images

Originally a heavily hip-hop influenced song when it was written, California native Jon Pardi brings a whole lot of twang to “Dirt On My Boots.” A #1 hit, it’s an anthem for anyone who gets a little dirt on their own boots every day in the course of making a living. 

 

32 of 40

"Body Like a Back Road," Sam Hunt

"Body Like a Back Road," Sam Hunt

Scott Dudelson/WireImage

Whether you think it's responsible for the rise of pop-country on the charts and misogyny in bro-country lyrics, there's no denying that Sam Hunt's smash "Body Like A Back Road" is ridiculously catchy. 

 

33 of 40

"It Ain't My Fault," Brothers Osborne

"It Ain't My Fault," Brothers Osborne

Taylor Hill/FilmMagic

Maybe it’s the hard-driving melody or hilarious music video that boasts four thieves wearing masks of ex-presidents trying to pull of a robbery, but “It Ain’t My Fault” helped put country duo Brothers Osborne, composed of actual brothers T.J. and John Osborne, on the map.

 

34 of 40

"Tin Man," Miranda Lambert

"Tin Man," Miranda Lambert

Jeff Kravitz/ACMA/FilmMagic for ACM

The ACM Song of the Year, Miranda Lambert’s “Tin Man” is one of the most stunning tracks from her album The Weight of These Wings. It takes inspiration from the Wizard of Oz, using the instantly recognizable metaphor to describe the desire of just wanting to feel numb after an epic heartbreak. 

 

35 of 40

"Tequila," Dan + Shay

"Tequila," Dan + Shay

Erika Goldring/Getty Images

Now a bona fide country super-duo, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney scored a massive country-pop hit with “Tequila” in The song was particularly popular on digital streaming platforms, hinting at Dan + Shay’s youthful fan base. 

 

36 of 40

"Most People Are Good," Luke Bryan

"Most People Are Good," Luke Bryan

Erika Goldring/WireImage

In these tumultuous times, sometimes an uplifting tune like Luke Bryan’s “Most People Are Good” is essential. Whether or not it’s actually true, this earnest, stripped-down tune has been certified Platinum since its release. 

 

37 of 40

"A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega," Ashley McBryde

"A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega," Ashley McBryde

Danielle Del Valle/Getty Images for Essential Broadcast Media

On November 13, Ashley McBryde won the CMA Award for New Artist of the Year, and “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega” is a huge part of that success. The lead single from her debut Girl Going Nowhere, this song’s vivid lyricism and McBryde’s powerful vocals made it an instant classic. 

 

38 of 40

"Humble and Kind," Tim McGraw

"Humble and Kind," Tim McGraw

James Gourley/WireImage

Written by prolific Nashville songwriter Lori McKenna and packed full of wise life advice for her family, Tim McGraw melted hearts everywhere with the release of “Humble and Kind.” That year, it won Best Country Song at the Grammy Awards, Song of the Year at the CMA Awards, and Country Song of the Year at the American Music Awards. 

 
"Somewhere With You," Kenny Chesney

Michael Loccisano/Getty Images

In , Kenny Chesney shook up perceptions of his music with the release of “Somewhere With You.” He shed his beachy, upbeat anthems for this brooding, a little bit dark tune that hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart weeks after its release. 

 

40 of 40

"Beer Never Broke My Heart," Luke Combs

"Beer Never Broke My Heart," Luke Combs

Gary Miller/Getty Images

The incredible rise of Luke Combs culminated in the artist being crowned Male Vocalist of the Year at the CMA Awards, and twangy party hit “Beer Never Broke My Heart” had a whole lot to do with that success. Co-written by Combs, the song was certified Platinum about two months after its release in August

Saving Country Music’s Worst Country Songs of

scm-worst-songs

WARNING: Language

The downward spiral for mainstream country music continues as evidenced by the following list of some of the most horrible offerings of , though it is interesting to note that many of &#;s &#;Worst Songs&#; selections were released in the first half of the year, and some even in late but did not rise into the greater consciousness until the change in the calendar. The second half of the year has been pretty light in bad songs, so maybe we are seeing a changing of the tide. Nonetheless, with how terrible these selections are, you could consider this not only the worst songs of , but arguably a list of the majority of the worst songs in the history of country music.

To qualify for this list, the song had to be released as a single. And with such a crowded field, only the worst of the worst were selected. Feel free to share your most vilified songs of below.

READ: Saving Country Music Song of the Year Nominees

PLEASE NOTE: As Saving Country Music has threatened many times (and then reneged on), the era of &#;rants&#; is coming to an end, unless something is so egregious there is no other way to address it. That doesn&#;t mean there won&#;t be spirited and pointed (& sarcastic) criticism where it&#;s called for, but we will proceed in the future under the philosophy that an opinion is more convincing when it is explained to someone instead of screamed at them. So cherish this style of rhetoric while you can.


Brantley Gilbert “Bottom’s Up”

“In this the season of giving, can we all at least come together as one, regardless of sex, race, orientation, creed, religious, political or social status, or cultural background, and swallow our collective differences, hold hands in the common bond of humanity in a rising chorus of hosannas, and all universally decree that Brantley Gilbert is the biggest douche ass to ever suck air on planet Earth?

“Such a gift from heaven it has been to not have Brantley terrorizing us with new music for a good long while. But apparently Brantley was just resting up, refining his putrid exploration into the very innermost reaches of human vanity and self-ingratiation to then unleash upon his trashy fans with the sweet residue of methamphetamine glistening on the edges of their inflamed nostrils, the purest form of raging narcissism ever witnessed in Western Civilization in the construct of his new diarrhetic single ‘Bottoms Up,’ and it’s accompanying video.

“At one point in the video, three women are surrounding Brantley, rubbing their hands all over him. But these girls aren’t copping a feel, their feverishly searching for Brantley’s beleaguered genitals that have taken the form of two acorns flanking a Vienna sausage that then fled up into his abdomen like a rodent scampering into its hole the result of a tireless regimen of prolonged steroid abuse; hence the nonstop, headlong pursuit of this song and video to compensate and dramatically oversell Brantley’s manly prowess and masculine superiority.” (read full rant)


Cole Swindell “Chillin’ It”

cole-swindell-3“Cole Swindell is the most not-having-any-bit-of-soul-or-culture human being I think I have ever observed on God’s whole creation. He’s the human equivalent of a piece of bleached white bread with the crust cut off, served with a glass of room temperature tap water. He’s more milk toast than Caspar, and more boring than a bowl of vanilla. It’s like a thermonuclear holocaust of culture and personality-scrubbing destruction swept over Cole Swindell while he was swimming in the very fissile material of the root detonation agent, leaving a man that is so vacant of anything interesting or distinguishable that he is the utmost purified and scientifically-verifiable essence of Miriam Webster’s unabridged definition of ‘generic’ that could ever be procured as an example or proffered as evidence.

“’Chillin’ It’, just like Cole Swindell himself, is the refined, filtered, and homogenized version of something that was rapaciously trite and disappointing to being with. The first thing that pops in your head when hearing ‘Chillin’ It’ is that it’s pretty blatantly Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Cruise’ version Except somehow, inexplicably, Swindell discovered how to do them even one worse by engineering something so aggressively vapid that labeling the song ‘bad’ even seems to bestow this spiritless, prosaic waste of effort with more personality and distinction than it actually contains or deserves.” (read full rant)

NOTE: Was released officially in , but didn’t rise to prominence and become a multi-week #1 until March of


Tim McGraw “Lookin’ For That Girl&#;

“Apparently the once high-flying country star has been inadvertently inoculating himself with inebriating bronzer agents from his incessant chemical tan treatments that have now seeped into his blood stream. And combined with an undiagnosed eating disorder that has rendered McGraw’s figure to that of a year-old Venice beach female body builder succumbing to a lifetime of melanoma, Tim has robbed precious nutrients from his gray matter, stupefying him into such an absolute scientifically-infallible vacuum and void of self-awareness that physicists want to employ it to see if it is the ultimate key to tabletop fusion. ‘Lookin’ For That Girl’ isn’t a cry for relevancy, it is a barbaric yawp, a banshee scream, a cacophonous ode to the onset of monoculture and wholesale mediocrity.

“The icing on this urine-drenched urinal cake topped with cigarette butts, spent gum, and used inside-out prophylactics oozing their venereal slurry out on the diarrhea-infested floor is the fact that through the entire drum machine-driven song Tim McGraw is singing through an Auto-tune filter turned to T-Pain, eat your top hat-wearing heart out. I’ve been saying for years now that Tim McGraw is more machine than man, but not even I could have predicted this unmitigated rejection and headlong flight from anything analog or authentic. Hell, why do we even need a human to sing this fucking song? We should just have one of those iRobot floor cleaners sing it. At least that way it would be on hand to swab up the hurl this monstrosity will invariably evoke from enlightened music listener’s disgruntled guts. And like an iRobot incidentally, ‘Lookin’ For That Girl’ will also freak the everliving shit out of your dog.” (read full rant)


Jason Aldean &#; &#;Burnin&#; It Down&#;

jason-aldean-burnin-it-down&#;&#;Burnin’ It Down&#; is a Casiotone piece of impersonal electronic awfulness in which any sign of true human inspiration or involvement has been so antiseptically replaced in lieu of animatronic tones and absolutist perfectitudes, the term &#;soul&#; has been completely and forever banished from being associated with this robotic piece of misanthropic pap. This isn’t a song, this is some guy with a MacBook Pro creating an electronic sound bed to send over to Aldean’s studio so he can overlay his Auto-tune’d vocals and call it good. As Tom Petty would say, &#;You put your name on it, but you didn’t do that.&#; Even the guitar tones have been been so exhaustively massaged by 1”²s and 0”²s they sound like the warning signals emitted from a Star Wars protocol droid right before it explosively self-destructs. A kitten aimlessly careening across a Korg keyboard in a catnip stupor could make a more compelling composition than this.

&#;Sorry Jason Aldean, but this song isn’t sexy, it’s creepy. They should exhume Barry White and make it the sole goal of the international scientific community to revive him for the exclusive purpose of kicking Jason Aldean’s ass for this song. What does Aldean know about sexy time anyhow? Aldean ain’t got the moves like Jagger, he’s got the moves like Grimmace. Mating couples won’t find “Burnin’ It Down” sexy unless they get equally horny for the annual return of the McRib. This song is a awkward as a hard on in a Speedo. &#;Burnin’ It Down&#; isn’t for intimate couples, it’s for lonely women to get all lubed up with in anticipation of an intimate encounter with Clyde the battery-powered hammerer.

&#;The best part of this song ran down Aldean’s pasty inner thigh and ended up as an embarrassing stain on his $ sheets. He should have worn a rubber instead of inseminating our ear holes with this public health audio pandemic. No, that burning you feel in your genitals isn’t from erotic allure, it’s because this song is the audio equivalent of a pussing venereal onslaught.&#; (read full roast)


Florida Georgia Line (w/ Luke Bryan) “This Is How We Roll”

“Like one of those stationary rides in the front of Wal-Mart for toddlers, ‘This Is How We Roll’ makes a lot of noise, has a bunch of flashing lights, bumps up and down a little bit, but in the end, goes absolutely fucking nowhere. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers soundtrack has more sincerity, depth, and nutritional value than this explosion of diarrhea in country music’s bikini cut man briefs.

“An environment of sexual perversion and sheer stupidity permeates ‘This Is How We Roll’ and its respective video from stem to stern, including a scene near the start of the video with a dollop of hussies having consensual sex with a Kenworth. I sure hope these chicks have their Tetanus records in order. And then of course we have Tweedledee and Tweedledum from Florida Georgia Line riding on top of the semi like Teen Wolf, with the same display of doltishness and disconnect with self-awareness many mid 80”²s movies like Teen Wolf were horrifically beset with.” (read full rant)


Jake Owen “Beachin’”

jake-owen-beachin-2“What’s going on here folks is now that Kenny Chesney has been put out to pasture by the country music powers that be, somebody has to step up and fill the void for swaying, stupid, sand between the toes sonnets of suburban escapism for something women with skin Cancer on their shoulders to hold their Corona Lights high in the air to and scream ‘Whoooo!’ while breathing in the smoke of their Home Depot citronella tiki torches ”¦ Now Jake Owen and others are stepping up to fill this void of what apparently is a must-have staple of the American country music radio dial.

“As much as hearing even the opening stanza of a corporate country beach song can make a distinguishing music listener pucker harder than trying to down a cheap Mexican beer without lime or salt, Jake Owen and ‘Beachin’’ makes this exercise even more excruciating by featuring him rapping, yes, rapping the verses ”¦ yo yo. And to this end, Owen delivers what has to be the worst white boy rap performance that has ever been proffered to human beings for public consumption that isn’t meant to be taken as ironic. I guess his voice is supposed to be all low and sexy, but the ultra-monotone and lifeless pitch makes Charlie Brown’s teacher sound like Loretta Lynn. Is the term ‘Beachin’’ supposed to be a lyrical hook that delivers some sort of payoff? Because it’s about as unfulfilling as Daytona Beach when you’re dreaming of Cancún.” (read full semi rant)


Maggie Rose &#; &#;Girl In Your Truck Song&#;

&#;I think we have just unearthed the biggest cultural abomination that has ever been classified as “country” music in its 70 year existence. No, I’m not talking bad, awful, terrible, or any other such adjectives. Even those words would seem to instill this embarrassment with a dollop of undeserved respect. Truth be known, there are songs that officially sound worse than this one out there for sure, or that are more stupid either purposefully or inadvertently. But the degree of slavitude and cultural backsliding celebrated and edified in this song is as abhorrent as it is alarmingly calamitous, and hovers only very slightly, and uncomfortably so, above genuine calls of gender downgrading and the erosion of sexual equality in American society, bordering on downright pleas for date rape. I pray that I have the strength to steady my hands enough to coherently compose just how angry this song makes me.

&#;From the heartfelt yet respectful concerns of some for how young women were being portrayed in country songs, to downright calls of sexism being perpetrated in country music from the &#;Bro-Country&#; takedown of the genre, sincere worry was already being transmitted from many sectors about female’s devolving role in the country music format. Now this alarming trend takes a gigantic leap forward (or backward, as it were), as a young woman voluntarily puts herself directly in the path of the misogynistic and materialistic locomotive that is modern day country music by pleading with her overbearing beau captor to allow her to become the subordinate piece of meat that is portrayed in all the worst hits of the &#;Bro-Country&#; era&#;As one studious observer on Twitter pointed out to me, women in country music have now become so marginalized, Stockholm Syndrome has set in. When Rolling Stone Country talked to Maggie Rose about this song, she said, &#;There are females embracing that role that all these men are writing about.'&#; (read full rant) 


Florida Georgia Line &#; &#;Sun Daze&#;

florida-georgia-line-dirt&#;At this point, Florida Georgia Line has settled quite nicely into being the great American sedative of our generation. Just as producer Joey Moi did with Nickelback before them, this music affords a vacation from self-reflection or truly beneficial thought. ISIS is beheading people in the Middle East and engaging in horrific genocide, the economic disparity between social classes continues to increase and has never been more pronounced. But that’s okay, you can put on the latest Florida Georgia Line single and all the girls are hot, all the guys get laid, and libations and narcotics are at your beck and call. This is the type of vacationary audio lubrication that keeps the engine of corporate America purring along just fine. Don’t get down; get high and buy shit.

“&#;Sun Daze&#; is a reversion back to the stupid-ass beach bum singalongs aka the same garbage Bro-Country replaced. Hell, &#;Bacardi&#; and &#;flip flops&#; are much easier to find things to rhyme with than &#;tailgate.&#; Screw that we’re actually heading into the Winter, it’s always sunny in shitty country music la la land.

Jerrod Niemann “Donkey” 

“‘Donkey’ is an uprovocated ass raping of the ears, and if any Niemannites come here preaching to me the virtues of this song because ‘country music must evolve,’ I will personally take a pair of donkey balls and use them to tea bag each and every one of their bedroom pillows when they’re not looking. “Donkey” isn’t just bad, it defines the catastrophic trainwrecking of the entire human evolutionary timeline. , years of homo sapien progress brought to a screeching halt because one pudgy douchebag wants an arena-sized “country” career before his pubes turn gray. “Donkey” is a harbinger for a dark age for arts, entertainment, and intelligence that humankind is on the precipice of plummeting headlong into.

“The worst song ever? I’m tired to doling out this distinction only to have to offer a revision every six weeks when some other pop country asshole finds a new gradient for rock bottom, but Jerrod Niemann’s EDM-encrusted, braying ass certainly deserves to be in the discussion for that most disgraceful of honors.” (read full rant)

The top country song for July is hardly a summer song, but it's much too hot to rank any lower than No. 1. This love ballad is as sincere as they come; a song every man and woman can relate to on some level. Strong sales helped this guy knock last month's No. 1 (Beachin' by Jake Owen) down a peg.

Songs by Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley also scored high on the July Top 40 songs list. Kenny Chesney snagged the best debut. 'American Kids' checks in at No. 10, just behind Lady Antebellum's new hit single. Joe Nichols is the month's surprise star. 'Yeah' is an unassuming country smash that's caught fire in the last 30 days.

Sabantuy began. A huge fire, kebabs and a lot of alcohol, which, however, was mostly destroyed by Sasha. We drank with him for the company, but little by little and every other time.

Well. Come on, otherwise she's bored there alone. We put on our hats and went into the steam room. Natasha was sitting on the top shelf. I sat down with her at the pioneer distance.
