1 Brad Paisley “Then” – This is a beautiful song written by Brad Paisley, Chris DuBois, and Ashley Gorley. “Now you’re my whole life, now you’re my whole world . And I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea, stronger than it’s ever been..and I thought I loved you then.” Beautiful lyrics!
2 Carrie Underwood “Change” – The topic of this song is important. It tells how people will tell you that you are a fool for trying to change the world, but not to listen, because it can happen. Written by Katrina Elam, Josh Kear, and Chris Tompkins.
3 Keith Urban “‘Til Summer Comes Around” – This is an amazing song written by Monty Powell and Keith Urban.
4 George Strait “Troubadour” – The man has been active in the music world since 1981 and has put out 24 studio albums.
5 Kellie Pickler “Best Days of Your Life” – A great song written by Kellie Pickler and Taylor Swift. I didn’t realize it until I researched it but Taylor Swift actually provides background vocals on this song.
6 Reba “Consider Me Gone” – A new hit from the one and only Reba. “Consider Me Gone” was written by Steve Diamond and Marv Green and was her second release for the Valory label. This song became McEntire’s twenty-four number one hit.
7 Taylor Swift “You’re Not Sorry” – It’s an under-rated Swift song, but one of my favorites.
8 Kenny Chesney “I’m Alive” – This song was first recorded by Willie Nelson on his album Moment of Forever, but the song was actually written by Kenny Chesney, Dean Dillon, and Mark Tamburino. This is a beautiful song and first appeared on Chesney’s 2008 album Lucky Old Sun. It then appeared on Chesney’s 2009 album Greatest Hits II. I included it because I think it is worthy of making this list!
9 Miranda Lambert “White Liar” – This is a really good up-tempo song backed by steel guitar. What country song would be complete without the narrator confronting her man for cheating on her? “Truth comes out a little at a time, and it spread just like a fire. Slips off your tongue like turpentine.”
10 Randy Rogers Band “Buy Myself a Chance” – Randy Rogers hails from Cleburne, Texas. Randy Rogers voice shines through on lead vocals. The rest of the band consists of Geoffrey Hill (guitar), Jon Richardson (bass guitar), Brady Black (fiddle), and Les Lawless (drums).
