With five more months left in the year, we’re sure this list will only get longer. Take a listen and let us know what country songs are on the top of your list for 2019 on Instagram or Facebook.

1. Tim Hicks – What A Song Should Do

If anyone knows what a song should do, it’s country star Tim Hicks. “What A Song Should Do” became the singer’s first number one at country radio…and deservingly so. It’s a song every music fan can stand behind. At the end of the day, we all just want to yell “HELL YEAH” or “ME TOO” when that first verse hits the speaker.


2. The Reklaws – I Do Too

The Reklaws took a risk with the release of “I Do Too”, a departure from their typical summer party songs. The risk paid off. The song shows a whole new side of the brother/sister duo that allows fans to relate to the pair on a deeper level. We all have fears and doubts no matter what path we’re on.


3. Madeline Merlo – Dear Me

While we’re talking about empowering songs, we can’t forget to mention “Dear Me” from Madeline Merlo. Girls, if you’re having a bad day or just want to feel inspired, the latest from Madeline Merlo is a must-listen. Plus, it’s a JAM.


4. Dallas Smith – Drop

When Dallas Smith released his EP “The Fall”, fans quickly fell in love with the first track “Drop”. Before the EP was released, Dallas had a different song geared up to be the next single. But since fans couldn’t get enough of “Drop”, the singer realized it had to be the next single.


5. James Barker Band – Keep It Simple

The beat is infectious. The lyrics keep you smiling. James Barker Band hit this one out of the park. Are we surprised? Absolutely not.


6. High Valley – Single Man

Leave it to High Valley to write a hit love song. “Single Man” will leave you believing in true love again.


7. Dean Brody – Whiskey In A Teacup

The songwriter never disappoints. You’ll be swaying along to the laid-back groove, from the very first note of Dean Brody’s latest single, “Whiskey In A Teacup”.


8. Chad Brownlee – Forever’s Gotta Start Somewhere

Chad Brownlee perfectly captures that first-glance feeling with “Forever’s Gotta Start Somewhere”. The singer has been on a roll since returning from a brief hiatus. We’re beyond thankful he’s back.


9. Tenille Townes – Somebody’s Daughter

The breakout song for Tenille Townes just had to be included in the Top Country Songs of 2019. It caught every country fan’s attention with its impactful lyrics mixed with the singer’s distinct voice. 


10. Hunter Brothers – Northern Lights

Those harmonies though. We’re not so low key obsessed with this band of brothers…and when they break into harmony, our jaws drop to the floor. every. time. Not to mention “Northern Lights” depicts the kind of love we all dream of.


11. Aaron Goodvin – Bars & Churches

Known for fun party songs like “Lonely Drum” & “You Are”, Aaron Goodvin showed fans a different of him in 2019 with the release of “Bars & Churches”. The emotional and impactful song will stop you in your tracks.


12. Meghan Patrick – Wild As Me

“Wild As Me” stays true to Meghan Patrick’s unique sound. The singer previously struggled with writing love songs, as none of them felt like her. That was until she met fellow country singer, Mitchell Tenpenny. With their relationship, “Wild As Me” came to life.


13. Sons Of Daughters – Ain’t Gonna Be Lonely Long

“Ain’t Gonna Be Lonely Long” certainly put this duo on the map in 2019. Going through a breakup? With one listen, you’ll be saying thank you, next.


14. Mackenzie Porter – About You

After taking time to focus on her acting career, Mackenzie Porter is back this year with another hit. The emotional music video for “About You” features her fiancé (and former Nashville star), Jake Etheridge.


15. Jessica Mitchell feat. Tim Hicks – Somebody Gonna Get Hurt

Fans got to hear a different side of country star, Tim Hicks, with his feature on Jessica Mitchell’s “Somebody Gonna Get Hurt”. The collaboration is everything we didn’t know we needed.
