The country crooner considers this to be a really fun song, which sings about a man’s attempt to talk to a woman in a bar. Though he was not able to catch her name, he still tried to come on to her, saying that he wanted to “get a little sideways” with her.
4. “All My Exes Live in Texas” by George Strait

Aldean’s career took off at an uncontrollable rate after the release of his debut single, “She’s Country.” With an extraordinary blend of banjo, fiddle, and hard rock-leaning power chords, Aldean swirls together his smart choice of words to describe his ideal country girl.
6. “Days Go By” by Keith Urban
“Days Go By” is among the country star’s tunes with the most pop and rock crossover appeal. Blending acoustic guitar and Urban’s usual up-tempo banjo-mandolin-driven riffs, the song delivers an important message of carpe diem.
7. “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems” by Kenny Chesney
The upbeat track kicked off Chesney’s pattern of releasing beach-themed “island music,” which draws to his personal love of island life. “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems” finds Chesney ditching his hectic work schedule for a beach vacation in Mexico, where he enjoys bottomless drinks and the sand on his feet.
8. “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under” by Shania Twain
This may sound like an upbeat country track, but its clever lyrics tell something else. Written by Twain with her then-husband, the song tells the tale of a woman who’s fully convinced that her man is cheating on her with several other women. “I know I’m not the only girl you run to,” she sings.
9. “All My Friends Say” by Luke Bryan
The up-tempo country-rock song finds Bryan waking up after a night of drinking at a bar without any memories of what happened on his last escapade or even how he arrived home. It turned out he started drinking heavily after seeing his former lover with her new man. “We’ve all been there and had those kinds of experiences,” Bryan said about the song.
10. “Stuck Like Glue” by Sugarland
It’s adorable and lively, and once you hear it, it will definitely get lodged in your head for days. “Stuck Like Glue” also features some unexpected reggae beats in the middle that makes the song even more amazing.

This fun party song was co-written by Rhett Atkins, who said that they penned the song about how they don’t care what the next day brings because tomorrow can wait until tomorrow. It’s a great reminder to live life at the moment.
12. “Alcohol” by Brad Paisley
While Paisley can flawlessly sing tender love songs, the country crooner shows his versatility singing humorous tunes such as “Alcohol,” which describes the beverages’ different effects on certain people – like giving them confidence to show their dance moves.
13. “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” by Hank Williams Jr.
Hank Williams Jr. is undeniably the party animal who kicked off several countrified soirees, including this upbeat track, “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over,” that’s made for the weekends.
