Top 10 Modern Country Songs that Prove that Not All Modern Country Music is Bad

Modern country music has gotten way more flack than it truly deserves. These songs show there is more to country music than getting drunk, stripping, partying, driving trucks, etc.

The Top Ten

1 Not Ready to Make Nice - Dixie Chicks

Not really a fan of country in general but I can admit it isn't all bad. Just never really was a big fan of the music. Although few exceptions can be made (Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Reba McEntire). - cjWriter1997


2 Merry Go 'Round - Kacey Musgraves

I don't like country at all but Kacey is an exception - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

3 Tin Man - Miranda Lambert

I used to hate her, but now I have realized she isn't that bad. It was a creative idea to combine indie and country. - 445956

4 Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley

I should've been a little more specific with the "getting drunk" portion of the description. By getting drunk, I meant at a club or any other place where bro-country artists typically sing about partying. - NiktheWiz

5 Since You've Gone to Heaven - Brandy Clark
6 Kill a Word - Eric Church
7 Fire Away - Chris Stapleton
8 Colder Weather - Zac Brown Band
