For some reason, country songs about missing someone hit way so deep that you’d probably be so emotional you’d pour a drink while listening to it. After all, country music is known for being so in touch with raw feelings, so it’s no surprise that these songs will evoke so much. And so, we compiled 30 country songs that talk about missing just about anyone – those you love, those who are far away, those who already passed on, and even those you shouldn’t.
1. I Will Always Love You by Dolly Parton
There will always be a lot of grief and heartache when someone leaves us, even if it’s for the better. And “I Will Always Love You” is that classic song you can play to remind yourself that people can leave you and still love you and appreciate everything you’ve done for them.
2. Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It by Darius Rucker
Not all relationships culminate into a happy ending, and that’s okay. If you feel like you’re still missing that person and crying why you’re still not over them, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” is telling you that you’re not alone. And that too is okay.
3. I Still Miss Someone by Johnny Cash
A story of lost love, “I Still Miss Someone” definitely hits in all the right places with full impact. It’s taking on a cold world without that person by your side and trying to overcome it.
4. Miss Me More by Kelsea Ballerini
“Miss Me More” is a girl-power anthem that will make you realize that most of the time, you think that you’re missing someone, you’re not. You are just missing the person you were before that someone changed you.
5. Carrying Your Love With Me by George Strait
In this country classic “Carrying Your Love With Me”, we hear a sweet voice of a man taking no care of anything else but going home to the love of his life. Wherever he goes, he carries her love with him, and that’s everything he needs.
6. Leaving On A Jet Plane by John Denver
Leaving someone will always be painful, and not knowing when you’ll be back again is even worse. And “Leaving On A Jet Plane” definitely resonates that heartbreaking feeling.
7. Strawberry Wine by Deanne Carter
A nostalgic track that reminisces the feelings of a sun-drenched first love, “Strawberry Wine” is everything you need to hear when you find yourself missing someone from your past.
8. Need You Now by Lady A
If there is anything more helpless than missing someone, that is missing someone not good for you. Just a piece of advice, go as far away from your phone as you can when you’re blasting this off. Don’t call your ex and say “Need You Now”.
9. I’ll Just Hold On by Blake Shelton
“I’ll Just Hold On” is a song about having someone with you but knowing they aren’t really with you. And all you could do is just hold on to them for as long as you can, and honestly, it’s even more painful than just letting go.
10. Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss
Sometimes, you miss someone that you need to get drunk in whiskey just to sweep all the feelings away. But in this haunting duet, they drink and numb themselves to a “Whiskey Lullaby,” never to wake again.
11. The Truth by Jason Aldean
This is a story of a man who didn’t want people to know “The Truth” that he is still strung out all over his ex. He even goes as far as to tell his ex that she could say all she wants about him – build him a reputation all she wants – but just don’t tell anyone the truth.
12. I Want Crazy by Hunter Hayes
“I Want Crazy” is a madly in-love track about a man who booked a one-way flight to see his girl so that he wouldn’t miss her anymore. If that isn’t crazy, we don’t know what is.
13. Come Back… Be Here by Taylor Swift
This song is for every couple who is in a long-distance relationship. It’s definitely hard to be in a relationship when you don’t see much of each other, and every time the moment ends, all you could say is, “Come Back… Be Here.”
14. I Drive Your Truck by Lee Brice
There is really no manual on how to handle a loss. For some, it’s distracting yourself and doing things to keep the memories tucked in, but for some, it’s driving around and letting the feelings take over. And that is exactly what “I Drive Your Truck” is all about. Because sometimes, you just have to allow yourself to miss a person to heal.
15. Pick Up by Dierks Bentley
“Pick Up” is that crazy obsessive song about a man who misses his woman so much that he would do anything just to hear her voice.
