Well, there’s more you need to find out. So, without further ado, here are the top 40 country songs this month.
1. You Proof by Morgan Wallen
Wallen notched his fifth single to debut atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with the release of “You Proof” during his birthday. Here, the country superstar is trying to drink away the painful memories of a relationship gone wrong – but no matter how he throws down whiskey or even vodka, nothing makes his heartbreak disappear.
2. The Kind of Love We Make by Luke Combs
Combs infuses some country-soul swagger into our list with the immediate standout track from his newest album, Growin’ Up. “The Kind of Love We Make” is coupled with an equally fiery music video that follows an elderly couple who’s madly in love with each other despite the many years that have passed by.
3. She Had Me At Heads Carolina by Cole Swindell
There’s nothing more nostalgic than Swindell’s latest single from his album Stereotype, which he wrote in a throwback mood. The song actually incorporates Jo Dee Messina’s 1996 country hit “Heads Carolina, Tails California” that will make you pine for the past.
4. Wasted On You by Morgan Wallen
Wallen never fails to sweep us off our feet – or sometimes, break our hearts. “Wasted on You.” a heartbreak ballad with double entendre finds Wallen aching over an old lover. He regrets all the time and money he wasted on his relationship, only to end up falling apart. Now, he’s trying to knock himself with bourbon to numb his emotional discomfort.
5. 5 Foot 9 by Tyler Hubbard
We finally now got the first taste of Hubbard’s debut solo project – and he made sure it’s going to be relatable. This sweet song is about Hubbard’s love for his wife, Hayley, who he fully describes in the lyrics.
6. Rock And A Hard Place by Bailey Zimmerman
Fast-rising country newcomer bares what he got in this emotional and all-too-relatable song about a relationship that started out strong but eventually turned out terribly damaged. What’s even more interesting is that Zimmerman wrote “Rock And A Hard Place” after a personal experience.
7. Where It Ends by Bailey Zimmerman
Zimmerman has dropped another breakup anthem, and it’s taking country music by storm. The country-rock song finds Zimmerman unwavering and tenacious in his decision to pull himself out of a gripping heartbreak. It’s definitely something we’re all familiar with.
8. Last Night Lonely by Jon Pardi
Pardi’s brand-new song may have a different story and a different sound, but it definitely has the same values. Plus, it comes with a fiddle solo – so what more could we ask for?
9. Like I Love Country Music by Kane Brown
Brown paid tribute to his favorite musical genre with his recently released single. He even name-checked songs by legendary country artists such as George Jones, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, as well as Johnny Cash and June Carter.
10. Fall In Love by Bailey Zimmerman
The moment this churning hit reached No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, we instantly knew that Zimmerman was the next big thing in country music. The heartbreaking ballad allowed him to show off how he’s willing to dive into his personal life, love, and loss to create one magical piece.
11. Son Of A Sinner by Jelly Roll
Here’s another entry from a burgeoning country newcomer. Jelly Roll reflects on his edgy lifestyle in this country-rock-leaning track, and it totally puts his barroom-style storytelling on full display.
12. Something In The Orange by Zach Bryan
This lovestruck single has forced its way onto country music charts and now ranks at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. This helped Bryan jump to the top spot of Billboard’s Emerging Artists, making him the top emerging act in the United States for the first time.
13.Wishful Drinking by Ingrid Andress with Sam Hunt
The team-up of Andress and Hunt is the collaboration we didn’t know we needed – we can’t help but get excited. Andress feels the same way as she described the feeling of singing with Hunt as “confetti.”
14. With A Woman You Love by Justin Moore
Moore’s latest hit continues to climb the country charts. The country singer recently dished out the story behind the song, revealing that he drew inspiration from his love for his wife when he wrote it. The result is truly a heartfelt piece.
15. Truth About You by Mitchell Tenpenny
When Tenpenny first revealed the song on the world’s fastest-growing app, TikTok, it immediately gained more than 2.5 million streams within just three days. Now, it has reached No. 14 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Interestingly, the singer admits that the song is about an ex.
