If I LOVE a song, I don't seem to get sick of it.

After I finally listen to it enough to learn all of the words, I then like to start working on the harmonies. Basically, music is magic.


Here are my top 5 Country New Year songs that I have been listening on repeat.

#5 FGL and Nelly - Cruise (Remix)

This remix gets me pumped every time. EVERY.TIME. It really doesn't matter where I hear it, in the studio, at work, in my car or at home. I am dancing and singing it at the top of my lungs. Windows down, radio up!

#4 Tim McGraw - Something Like That

Oh man this throw back never gets old. It is so great. It takes you back in time to when you were doing nothin but trollin for honies. hahah But really, it paints the perfect picture of a simpler time and it is wonderful.

#3 Kane Brown & Katelyn Brown - Thank God

How cute is this song? And Katelyn held her own. Girl can sing! I really was worried that they did a song together for fun and I wouldn't like it and feel bad. I love it. It is such a good wholesome song. ♥  And.....they're hot.

#2 HARDY & Lainey Wilson - Wait in the Truck

First of all... I LOVE HARDY. This is a throwback to when country music was a full story time. What a powerful story to tell. There so many emotions that you feel as this story develops. The first time I heard it I was tearing up. So sad. So real. So powerful.

#1 Jelly Roll- Son of a Sinner

That voice! It is so soulful and gritty. He already had success in rock and now country music loves him. He has decided to go without a cell phone! What???? How??? Check his tweet out...

 I hope his mental health is spectacular after this awesome experiment. I'm definitely watching for an update.
Tell me what you are listening to so I can add it to my next list!

Top 22 Country Songs of 2022, Ranked

There are plenty of feel-good country jams on this list of the top country songs of 2022, but the No. 1 song is one of the best love songs of the decade. These 22 songs are ranked by critical acclaim, radio and sales success, and importance to the genre.

Seven of the 22 artists made our Top Country Songs list from 2021, as well, but there are no song repeats. If a song made a previous list (or didn't spend most of its time on the charts in 2022), it's not eligible. So, before you ask where your favorite song is (i.e. Cody Johnson, "'Til You Can't"), be sure the miss isn't just a technicality.
