There are days when we feel happy, and there are also days when we’re sad, but no matter what emotion, there are country songs with color in the title that fit just right to what we feel. So we compiled 27 country songs that you can vibe with depending on the shade of your mood.
1. “Blue Clear Sky” by George Strait
Inspired by a unique turn of phrase in Tom Hanks’ film Forrest Gump, “Blue Clear Sky” is a classic romantic country ballad that perfectly translates the feeling of hopelessness and giving up only to be graced by love. It’s everything you need to hear to comfort your broken heart.
2. “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American)” by Toby Keith
The craving for freedom is one of the strongest feelings that we could ever feel. And as a story of patriotism and faith in the USA, “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” definitely delivers that empowering message.
3. “Red, White and Blue” by Travis Denning
Another song about patriotism, “Red, White and Blue,” is centered around the message of respect for the flag. It’s a powerful song that reminds people that one thing scuffed up, dark brown leather boots would never do is step on the red, white, and blue.
4. “How Blue” by Reba McEntire
Blue has always been the color of sadness, and “How Blue” is everything you need to hear to drown in that feeling. This is the anthem for everyone who is still hurting after being left alone. Sing along to this to feel the weight lift off your shoulders.
5. “Red Neckin’ Love Makin’ Night” by Conway Twitty
Blue is for sadness, and red is for passion. “Red Neckin’ Love Makin’ Night” is all about enjoying the night with your lover in an upbeat, boogie-influenced melody. As Whiskey Riff said, Conway is the king of horny country songs, and this definitely makes that list.
6. “Red Storm” by Shania Twain
This track is a whole 2 minutes and 49 seconds of total mind-blowing live jam that you could get into anytime you want to release that stress off or just have your much-needed fun. Enjoy!
7. “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue” by Crystal Gayle
A clever play on words, the song “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue” is about the pain of mistreated love – brown eyes turning into blues – and that sometimes the truth can hit harder than not knowing, and forgiving is easier when you spare the details.
8. “Black Eyes, Blue Tears” by Shania Twain
“Black Eyes, Blue Tears” is a song about domestic abuse – a perfect representation of the struggles and the pain of being in one, and no woman or man should ever have to be in this position. It’s time to stand up and break free!
9. “Blue Moon” by The Mavericks
We all know the expression ‘once in a blue moon,’ and in this song, the narrator finds his highly-unlikely stroke of luck under this blue moon. Sometimes, blue is not just about sadness but also about some good – though rare – luck.
10. “Red Light” by David Nail
Unlike other breakup songs where the end can already be clearly seen, this song goes on to show that it’s not. And that the end can arrive unexpectedly, like on a seemingly perfect day in the car while waiting for the “Red Light.”
11. “Blue Eyes and Freckles” by Chris LeDoux
This cowboy song is just a great story about a little three-year-old and his adventures as a kid. For anyone who has a kid or for anyone who just wants to reminisce about their childhood, “Blue Eyes and Freckles” is definitely the song to play.
12. “One Blue Sky” by Sugarland
“One Blue Sky” is one of those songs that means so much deeper than the story we read through its lyrics. And that’s basically its charm. You can interpret it in so many ways – an old town whose heart has been taken away with newcomers, dreams that have run dry, or just simply a town run down by nature and time.
13. “Long Black Train” by Josh Turner
This song makes use of a “Long Black Train” as a metaphor for temptation. It talks about how people are caught up in a crossroad of decisions – whether to ride or not to ride the train. But for some, it can also be a crossroad of identities, finding out who you truly are or continuing to pretend to be someone else.
14. “Black and White” by Barbara Mandrell
When a marriage comes to an end, a once colorful life called love can turn to “Black and White,” just like ink on paper waiting to be signed. And the worst part of it all is the question of whether it’s too late to try and fix things.
15. “Black Coffee” by Lacy J. Dalton
Just like “Black Coffee” and its bitter taste, this song is all about an ending coming and the pain of thinking if you can survive through it and after it.
