E’s 4th of July Weekend Country Countdown – pt. 7

July 5, 2009

I’m back to finish off this last 140 songs today, so strap in for some hot country hits.  All you haters out there should really give some of these jams a try; you might be surprised.  In reality, these next 100 songs or so could be ordered in a variety of ways just depending on what any particular song means to the listener.  This is simply my ordering.

140. Alabama – Take me down.  Another classic jam from this collosal country crew.

139. Brooks and Dunn – She’s not the cheatin’ kind.  Mmmm, another great track from one of my favorite country music duos.  These guys do it right.

138. Toby Keith – Should’ve been a cowboy.  We’re getting down to the last few Toby Keith jams.  This is one of his that I actually really enjoy.  Simple, solid country music. 

137. Garth Brooks – Rodeo.    And Garth storms onto the scene with his first jam on the list (don’t worry, there are SEVERAL more higher up).  A fitting jam to follow Keith’s cowboy lament.  Enjoy.

136. Dolly Parton – 9 to 5.  Another GIANT in the country music biz makes her debut on the list with this fun title track from a pretty damn funny film.  Welcome to the list, Dolly!

135. Mark Wills – I do (cherish you).  Of course, many of you may remember this jam from the world of R&B.  You’ll note, as this countdown continues, that I have included several such songs.  This one is pretty good as a country jam.

134. Faith Hill – This Kiss.  Another huge female country talent arrives with her first solo action on the countdown (she’s featured above and below with husband tim Mcgraw) with this unmistakable country hit. (and I found an interesting video to accompany the jam).

133. JoDee Messina – Heads Carolina tails California. I really enjoy this jam.  it’s a fun, get-up-and-do-something-spontaneous kinda song. from an artist who’s featured several times on this countdown.  Hit the open road…

132. Taylor Swift – White Horse.  As much as it pains me to put a newcomer to the country scene on an all-time list, she’s really made quite a mark in a short time.  This one is not her most popular, but it may be my favorite of her work. 

131. Jessica Andrews – Who I am.  A bit of a country one hit wonder, Jessica Andrews hit the scene with this jam years ago and we haven’t heard much from her since.  Pity, this was a good one.
