Some of the Best Country Songs

There you were, driving truck across the southwest in the late 70s or thereabouts.

You pulled your rig into a shabby little diner by the side of the road out in the desert.

Up behind the counter on a shelf is a filthy old white plastic radio covered in grease.

You go in to get your coffee and biscuit and in no particular order you would hear these great songs:

  1. Lonesome Number One, Norma Jean – Just listen to it. If you don’t like it, I can’t help you.
  2. Sea of Heartbreak, Don Gibson – Brilliant. I can’t describe it.
  3. If I were a Carpenter, Johnny Cash and June Carter – Powerful, soulful.
  4. Put your Hand in the Hand, Ocean – Best Hippie Gospel song Ever
  5. Six Days on the Road, Dave Dudley – Best Trucker song
  6. Walkin’ After Midnight, Patsy Cline – One of the best ever.
  7. Hello Walls, Faron Young – Classic
  8. Charlies Shoes, Billy Walker – Very country
  9. Tulsa Time, Don Williams – If you can’t love Don Williams, you are too far gone.
  10. Blue Moon Kentucky, Elvis – Yes Elvis. JUST LISTEN TO IT
  11. Glen Campbell, Wichita Lineman – No doubt

Even if you don’t like Country, listen to these songs, buy them, put them on your whatever listening contraption.
