Top Ten Best Country Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Pancho and Lefty - Willie Nelson

Great story. Reminds me of old time country, a story sung by the fire under the stars.

Willie must be in the top 10...the best male country singer after Hank!

You can't go wrong with Willie and Merle.

This song is reminescent of those Westerns by the great Marty Robbins. Even though Willie doesn't often dabble in westerns, this song is by far one of his greatest successes.

22 The Ride - David Allan Coe V 1 Comment
23 Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley

To this day still makes me cry despite the insane amount of times I've listened to it.

Brad is my favorite, he came up with a new country style. He has the best lyrics and his guitar skills are so amazing, he's not one of the "biggest" but he's the best!

The story of a mistake and reconciliation, simply stunning!

This is the best, most amazing song I've heard in my life.

25 Country State of Mind - Hank Williams Jr. V 2 Comments
26 The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band

This is the song my husband and I request at every wedding reception we go to. It is great and fun to dance to.

That was one of my favorite country songs I listened to back when I was little.

It's a classic, deal with the devil style song, definitely deserves a place in the top ten.

In my humble opinion this is the number one greatest country song ever written

27 Before He Cheats - Carrie Underwood

Amazing for any girl who has ever got cheated on. I know I have and I heard this and it made things some what better. Carrie Underwood has a great voice you will love this song from the start if you have never heard it before.

The best vocalist in country music history completely delivers with this bluesy song about revenge.

The best vocalist in country music history? Really? So this song is actually a duet with Carrie and Patsy Cline?

Defines what every cheated girl wants to do...

29 Stand By Your Man - Tammy Wynette

This song is so simple and yet so sophisticated. Only when you play it yourself on a guitar, you can experience the true wonder of it. By the way, the older Tammy Wynette grew, the better the song sounded. No doubt : "Stand By Your Man" will still be "hot" 100 years from now (and much later... ).

Jake and Elwood did it better. Great song that many more great country artists should really consider covering - ofcoarseidyes123

Who the hell are Jake and Elwood? No ONE ever sang this masterpiece better than the best female voice in the history of country music.

Simply the best!

30 Take Me Home, Country Roads - John Denver

This is one of the best songs ever. How are Taylor Swift and Sam Hunt above this? They are not even country.

A Really good song, my ear feel fly if I listening this when travel far away

You've got Sam Hunt above this masterpiece? Yikes...

Are you nuts? How is this not even in the top 10?

31 Mama Said - Metallica

One of the best Country songs ever and its by Metallica LOL - christangrant

What is a heavy metal band doing on a country music list...?...

32 Concrete Angel - Martina McBride
33 Fancy - Reba McEntire

The story is haunting, and she sings with athe perfect amount of emotion. The lyrics, and the way she sang them, can bring tears.

Fancy is Reba's most famous song. It is a true country song that was created by country music's Queen.

It really shows you how to keep moving with your head held high

34 Dinosaur - Hank Williams Jr.
35 My Hometown - Charlie Robison
36 I Can Still Make Cheyenne - George Strait

George Strait definitely needs to be high on this list. He is called the King of Country for a reason.

37 Bless the Broken Road - Rascal Flatts

This is a great song and Rascal Flatts does a great cover of it, but let's give kudos to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band for writing it.

This band is from Columbus Ohio (where I was born) and they went to THE Ohio STATE UNIVERSITY. GO BUCKEYES AND THANKS RASCAL FLATTS!

One of the best songs of Rascal Flatts! Really lovee itt! Such an unique lyrics! Lovee the music! And Rascal Flatts is amazing! He has such an amazing voice! You guys should listen to this one!
