know it's subjective. I know you might disagree. I know, I know, I know. But I wanted to put down my top 10 Country Songs for 2017.

You might agree, and you might disagree. Either way, I'd love to hear what I left off and what I should have included. Here they are.

    "Dirt On My Boots"

    John Pardi

    This one was a no brainer. It fits the area we live in and it's a cool love song, that's not really a love song. It's been crazy popular this year. Brian Dozier of the Minnesota Twins used it for his walk up music and I took LOTS of calls for it.

    "Body Like a Back Road"

    Sam Hunt

    Some will argue it's level of Country. I argue that it's clever cool. From the lyric to the production to the way it sounds on a boat in the summer. Cutting Edge Cool. Get used to him. I think he's just scratching the surface.

    "Hometown Girl"

    Josh Turner

    Turner will have a song on my list every year. My son Logan claims, and he's probably right, one of the best country singers, if not THE BEST in the industry. I wouldn't fight him to disagree. Awesome voice.

    "Bar at the End of the World"

    Kenny Chesney

    Kenny, makes me happy. When I hear his music my belly feels good. It makes me wish I was on vacation. His music reminds me of vacations and trips to faraway places get together with friends I wish could last forever.

    "Drinkin' Problem"


    Love the lyric, love the country vibe and want to personally thank them for bringing a drinkin' song back into the spotlight. Something Country Music usually hammers on. (Pun intended) Now we just got a good, she's leaving and the dog died song!

    "They Don't Know"

    Jason Aldean

    Nobody puts a cry in their voice like Aldean. I love the song and how he can weave country living and country pride into a song. He gets it and it's songs like this that help him fill venues. I can't wait to hear him sing about his new baby Memphis. That should be golden for 10 years or so.

    "Do I Make You Wanna"

    Billy Currington

    I like the guys voice. And he does songs that take me there. Songs that put my back in situations or places. ( I would like to ask his producer what compelled them to leave the left channel 2-3 db lower than the right.) Look at it digitally and you'll see what I mean. Regardless, it worked for me.

    "More Girls Like You"

    Kip Moore

    This song wouldn't go away. The first 30 times I heard it, I didn't get it. Then I listened to Bobby Bones interview him on his Bobby Cast and it started making sense to me, how Kip hears his songs one instrument or riff at a time as he's writing and recording. He too has a unique and cool voice. And chicks dig him too.

    "Written in Sand"

    Old Dominion

    This song is the bomb! The lyric is boss. If you are looking for a mate, or have been with one for nearly 35 years, it resonates. They are clever and crafty. Anything they put out shows a level of thinking and pride.

    "Heartache On The Dance Floor"

    Jon Pardi

    I didn't get this song when I first heard it. I thought it was trite and corny. Then, like so many songs, I saw other people enjoying them so I wondered what it was that was hitting them. Late summer I too became a believer in it. I've never got tired of playing it and love to see it coming up on the list.

    "Marry Me"

    Thomas Rhett

    I know. It's early, but this song is special. Unless you are totally blessed as being a perfect guy who's never had his butt fried, you can't listen to this song and not relate. You're sitting there watching her head off in a different direction. This song is killer, both men and women will identify with it. (Good news, you'll  thank God that he got her when you find her!)

    "Round Here Buzz"

    Eric Church

    It wasn't even close. I LOVE this song!  It's not a fast song, but it's by far my favorite of the year. Every time it plays I turn it up. Two for one till two tonight. It sounds great on the radio and even better in headphones or earbuds. There's something about a downer song, that makes me feel good. This one does it for me every time!  BEST SONG OF THE YEAR!
