5. You Proof by Morgan Wallen 

Morgan Wallen’s candid mix of liquor and forgetting an ex is truly a hit to country fans. In fact, “You Proof,” which finds him drinking away the memory of a broken relationship, made a record for spending ten consecutive weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

6. Thinkin’ Bout Me by Morgan Wallen

“Thinkin’ Bout Me” is another post-breakup song by Morgan Wallen, which finds him wondering if his former girlfriend thinks of him whenever she’s with her new man. Sadly, he is having difficulty letting go of her – a theme Wallen sings best.

This upbeat summer melody will surely find you reminiscing about the past. According to Old Dominion’s frontman Matthew Ramsey, the song was written out of the memories that provide a sense of comfort and nostalgia. 

11. Tennessee Orange by Megan Moroney

Even before Megan Moroney released “Tennessee Orange” as a debut single – and before she was even an unsigned artist – the song was already popular with country listeners. The surefire hit fueled her rise and catapulted the Georgia native into the spotlight.

12. Love You Anyway by Luke Combs 

Luke Combs’ latest single, “Love You Anyway,” quickly became a huge hit. Well, there’s no doubt about that, as fans chose it. The country singer conducted a poll on his social media, giving his fans a chance to choose what would be his next radio hit, and this romantic ballad was a sure win.

13. Bury Me In Georgia by Kane Brown

This stomping ode finds Kane Brown singing about wanting only one thing when he dies – and this is not money or fame but a simple wish of being buried in Georgia. What a fantastic way to salute his Southern roots – something other Georgians will surely pick up on.

14. It Matters To Her by Scotty McCreery

Scotty McCreery wrote this romantic ode alongside Lee Thomas Miller and country singer-songwriter Rhett Akins as a tribute to his wife and childhood sweetheart, Gabi. The song’s music video even featured home footage from Gabi’s pregnancy stage, leading all the way to the birth of their baby boy.

15. Your Heart Or Mine by Jon Pardi

This edgy, fiddle-heavy track got what it takes to be a country hit – whiskey, wine, and late-night phone calls to an ex-lover. It’s no surprise Jon Pardi is fast ascending the country charts with “Your Heart Or Mine,” which finds him in a push-and-pull cycle of a relationship.
