Top Ten Best Country Songs of All Time

Out of every country song of all time, what do you think is the greatest?

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning) - Alan Jackson

This song is wonderful but sad. It really shows what everybody was feeling in the days following 9/11 and even today after all of the terrorist attacks and school shootings going on across the country and around the world.

I love this song it should be number 1 it is a sad and good song and it was about a true thing. I was at school when this happened and it was a sad day

Because it shows American spirit and nothing beats that and it is a true representation of how Americans felt on that cold September day

There are some very worthy songs up there in the top ten but for what this song is for, what it means, and just how great Alan Jackson sings it, I really do think it should be the best.

62 (Ghost) Riders in the Sky - Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash is Johnny Cash!

/grate song but wrong artist [sons of the pioneers] do a much much better
job and they should be # 1 on the charts

63 East Bound and Down - Jerry Reed
64 Feels So Right - Alabama

Sexiest country song ever written.

65 Watch Me - Lorrie Morgan
66 Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way - Waylon Jennings

How are many of Waylon's great songs not in the top 25 with at least a couple in the top ten I mean there are 2 singers who changed country music forever and obviously they are #1 Waylon Jennings and #2 Hank Williams

Great song with an amazing person to sing it. Waylon Jennings is one of the reasons Old Country is still the best today.

What a great song to always remember. I sing it in my head some nights when I try to sleep. But I am older than most so it is fresh in my mind.

This song should be in the top 10

67 One Step Forward - Desert Rose Band
68 That's My Job - Conway Twitty

How could Conway not be at the top and have more songs listed here, the greatest country singer of all

Conway all day!

69 Chicken Fried - Zac Brown Band

These guys are the best modern country band in my opinion. They definitely bring something new, fresh and less poppy to the table. A lot of their songs have some bluegrass and classic country influences which is really hard to implement in songs today. Their much more experimental as well. Give Who Knows from their second album a listen. It's a ten minute masterpiece. Plus even recently, they became noticed by the modern rock radios with the single Heavy Is The Head.

Awesome song don't see how this isn't number one

Great musicians... Good people. Regards hale

Amazing song awesome singer

70 Take Your Time - Sam Hunt

Sam Hunt is not real country remove this from the list immediately.

Incredible, a masterpiece. He will go down in history. No one on this earth has had a first album half that magnificent, except for Eric Church. But nothing will touch Sam Hunt, except for a lil bit of old dominion.

Worst Pop song ever. Sam Hunt makes rap music worse

Takes a new form to country music. Unique, but a strong masterpiece.

76 Rain is a Good Thing - Luke Bryan

Needs to figure out if he wants to go the pop, hip hop, or country route. They don't blend.

Rain IS a good thing what would we do without it!

Oh snap! I didn't think HE would sing this.

One of best voices ever. The song has stood the test of time. My grandkids love it!

Number 69 Come on? This is the greatest country song of them all. Story, music, voice, have never been equalled in this classic

Marty Robins is a true classic. This and Big Iron are his best works.
