Awesome Music / Country

Artists with their own pages:


  • Speaking of Georges, there's also "He Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones, which often tops polls as the best country song ever.
  • Johnny Cash. "Ring of Fire" is his most well-known, but some other gems can be found: "The Man Comes Around" and his cover of "Sam Hall" from American IV are amongst the least tragic on the album, while his cover of "Danny Boy" can move you to tears.
    • When Johnny Cash covered NIN's "Hurt", Trent Reznor said this:
      I pop the video in, and wow... Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps... Wow. [I felt like] I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn't mine anymore.
  • Reba McEntire's "Consider Me Gone" is BAMF in an Awesome sandwich.
    • "Fancy" is a rare example of the artist, critics, and fanbase all agreeing pretty universally to a Signature Song.
  • "And just when I thought it couldn't get no hotter...I caught a glimpse of the farmer's daughter!" (Rodney Atkins)
  • When it rains, I don't mind being lonely...
  • Martina McBride's "Happy Girl". Actually pretty much anything by Martina McBride up to her Emotion album.
    • Special mention needs to go to the sheer power and anger in "Independence Day", a song about a woman driven to the breaking point by her abusive husband, with lines like "Now I ain't sayin' it's right or it's wrong, but maybe it's the only way / Talk about your revolution - it's Independence Day," and "Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning / Let the weak be strong / Let the right be wrong / Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay / It's Independence Day."
    • "A Broken Wing." The last long note crosses over into Awesome Moments, especially live.
  • "The House that Built Me". Enough said.
  • "Ghost Riders In The Sky". No seriously, "Ghost Riders In The Sky".
  • Pretty much all of Johnny Reid's stuff, but especially "Let's Go Higher" and "Old Flame".
  • "Riding With Private Malone" by Wood Newton and Thom Shepherd, and recorded by American country music artist David Ball.
  • "God Bless the U.S.A." by Lee Greenwood. It managed to restore faith in the U.S. after the tragedy of the Vietnam War.
  • "He said, 'I wanna see you again...But I'm stuck in colder weather...'"
  • Did anyone else know Jennette McCurdy could sing? "Not That Far Away" Is a hell of a lot better than anything else any Disney or Nickelodeon stars have ever put out.
