Another month is in the books for this year and we have been spoiled by some great country music from our respective artists. As we look forward to the next month, here are the top 40 country songs that we all should look forward to.
Number 1 song for the month of September from Lee Brice will be moving one spot down to give way for country music’s most reliable name for the past 20 years.
Artists like Blake Shelton, Luke Combs, and Keith Urban will help fill the top 10 spots of this month. Unfortunately, country radio airplay for solo female artists remains to be desired as hits from this year’s Entertainer of the Year front-runners Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert are not listed on the list.
This month’s top 40 country song lists is compiled from Billboard chart data, streaming data, sales figures, staff opinion and reader feedback.
