The rapidly rising country-folk singer’s success story kicked off when his now-viral video started circulating around the internet. There, he puts forward the working class’ pain and angst at the hands of greedy rich men – something everyday people will surely relate to.

So, let’s not wait any longer! Allow us to share with you the top 40 country songs for September 2023. Keep on scrolling to find out.

1. Rich Men North of Richmond by Oliver Anthony Music

This out-of-nowhere viral protest song – about a working-class man frustrated by years of hard toil only for his low wage to get eaten up by taxes – ranks No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and Billboard Hot 100. The song even found its way into the first Republican presidential debate.  

2. Fast Car by Luke Combs

Luke Combs’ “Fast Car” now sits in the second spot but continues to gain avid listeners, clinging to his gravelly and gently countrified version of the classic ballad. Well, there’s no doubt about that, as Combs has played this song for many years while still starting his music career.

3. Last Night by Morgan Wallen

With 36 tracks to choose from Morgan Wallen’s massive album, One Thing At A Time, it’s definitely a challenging task to zero in on which one is the best. But as soon as Wallen dropped “Last Night,” it immediately went through an impressive run.

4. Religiously by Bailey Zimmerman 

Bailey Zimmerman has gained several firsts since he went viral on social media and broke into the country music scene. He even released his debut album, Religiously. The Album – whose third single, “Religiously,” became another addition to his chart toppers.

5. Need a Favor by Jelly Roll

The Nashville native is one of the most popular artists on the scene today. He recently introduced to the world his award-winning album, Whitsitt Chapel, with the LP’s debut single, “Need a Favor.”

6. Thinkin’ Bout Me by Morgan Wallen

Here’s another single off Morgan Wallen’s album One Thing at a Time, where he wishes a former girlfriend still had feelings for him – something the award-winning singer-songwriter has mastered through time. 

7. Try That In A Small Town by Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean faced immense backlash when he released the official music video for “Try That In A Small Town.” Still, the controversial song reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and Billboard Hot 100.

8. Love You Anyway by Luke Combs

Luke Combs describes “Love You Anyway” as “very poetic.” He wrote this romantic ballad about his wife, Nicole. The couple got hitched in 2020.

9. Watermelon Moonshine by Lainey Wilson

“Watermelon Moonshine” is Laine Wilson’s latest single to impact country radio. Many relate to its story of a teenage couple finding love in a small town, even if it was not destined to last.

10. Bury Me In Georgia by Kane Brown

Kane Brown’s “Bury Me in Georgia” has hopped to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay. The stomping ode, which finds the Tennessee native tipping his hat off his southern roots, was released as the fifth single off his third studio album, Different Man.

11. Your Heart Or Mine by Jon Pardi

Jon Pardi finds himself in a push-and-pull cycle with a love interest in “Your Heart Or Mine.” The country singer also headed to the scenic city of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, for its music video.

12. White Horse by Chris Stapleton

“White Horse,” which finds Chris Stapleton warning his woman that he needs more time to unlock his heart, debuted at no. 7 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. It is the first taste of Stapleton’s forthcoming album, Higher – and it only shows what’s about to come.

13. Truck Bed by HARDY

HARDY is undoubtedly mighty fond of showcasing himself as the good ol’ country boy driving around his truck, just soaking up that country-living vibe. Take, for instance, “Truck Bed,” which finds him walking up at the back of his truck and realizing how much he messed up.

14. Pretty Little Poison by Warren Zeiders

Did you know “Pretty Little Poison” debuted as the most added at country radio in its first week on the airwaves? The song was released as the lead single and title track to Warren Zeiders’ highly anticipated debut and full-length major label project.

15. Everything I Love by Morgan Wallen

Well, “Everything I Love” has been a fan-favorite among Mogan Wallen’s notable discography. Without a doubt, many relate to the song that finds Wallen singing about an old lover ruining nearly everything he loves simply because everything he does reminds him of her – just like driving to his hometown.
