In my opinion, country music is incredibly underrated. The country fanbase is growing on the daily and I could not be more excited about it. However, we all have friends or family who don’t like country music (who knows why) but here’s a list of songs they will love (even if they won’t admit it). If you already like country, here are the best songs to listen to.
- Tequila by Dan + Shay
This is the song you are gonna want to blast with your windows down when driving. I promise you will love it. Dan + Shay are becoming extremely well-known country singers and this song helped get them there. Listen to it, you won’t regret it!!
- Whiskey Glasses by Morgan Wallen
First of all, Morgan Wallen is incredible. Any song by Wallen is great, but there’s something special about this song. Whiskey glasses is about a breakup and it’s incredibly catchy. Especially if you are going through a breakup, this is a relatable one.
- Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves
This is one of the most classic songs – an oldie but a goodie. If you listen to it, you’ll love it. Most people don’t even know it’s country! The lyrics are hilarious and it has a great beat. It talks about how everyone gets judged and no one is perfect, so to just be yourself and “follow your arrow wherever it goes.”
- Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band
This song is all about living your best life and enjoying every second of it. It’s one of the best songs to scream with your friends at a party. It puts everyone in a good mood because it’s so upbeat and lighthearted. Even if you don’t love country, everyone loves this classic.
- Speechless by Dan + Shay
This song will most definitely make you speechless. This song is about both Dan and Shay’s wedding days, and it’s so precious! The music video will melt your heart. After listening to this song, all you want is a relationship and to be loved like these guys love their wives. Fun fact, I got asked to my senior prom with this song!
- Her Name Was Summer by Ryan Hurd
Maybe I’m biased because my name is Summer, but I’m obsessed with this song. I can’t stop listening to it. It’s one of those slower songs that makes everyone smile. When you take the time to listen to the lyrics, you’ll appreciate it even more.
- Cruise by Florida Georgia Line
Another classic country song, with good vibes written all over it. The minute you hear it, all you wanna do is sing along to it. It makes you think about summertime and all the unforgettable memories that come along with it. You’ll want to memorize the lyrics fast, then it’ll be stuck in your head 24/7!
- Body Like a Back Road by Sam Hunt
Any song by Sam Hunt is a 10/10, but there is nothing compared to this one. This song is all about a happy, easygoing relationship. It is lighthearted and guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
- Beautiful Crazy by Luke Combs
Luke Combs is one of the most well-known country singers. This song is all about how crazy he is about a crazy girl he likes. The lyrics flow so well and are absolutely adorable. It just makes you automatically love Luke Combs and every song he sings. Girls, this song will make you want someone just like him. Guys, take notes!
- Take Your Time by Sam Hunt
This song I have listened to on repeat countless times. The upbeat, catchy lyrics talk about loving a girl and simply wanting to take her time to show her how much he appreciates her. This song will not disappoint you, and will encourage you to swoon over Sam Hunt!
- H.O.L.Y. by Florida Georgia Line
Florida Georgia Line is a very famous country band, some people don’t even know they are country. This song is a classic and all about happiness. It skyrocketed Florida Georgia Line’s career, as it is one of their most popular songs. Highly recommend giving it a listen, it won’t disappoint!
- Die a Happy Man by Thomas Rhett
Even if you don’t like country, you have probably heard of Thomas Rhett. Any song by him is amazing, but there is something special about this song. It’s about this incredible date that he had and how all he needs in life is this girl. If you listen, you will want to marry Thomas Rhett.
- Hello Beautiful by Noah Schnacky
This song just makes you want to be happy. It’s a love song, and one of my absolute favorites. The minute I heard it, I was hooked. This is one of those songs that you can just listen to on repeat for hours; I know it is because I have before!
Most people are strongly opposed to country, but I promise, give at least one of these a shot and I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised!
