When it comes to country music, people know what they like and dislike. People know whom they prefer versus whom they do not prefer in country music.
There are many country artists to choose from when buying a country album. Personally, when it comes to country music I can listen to just about all of it. Of course, I like many others have my favorite country albums that I listen to on a regular basis, at home and in the car. Here is my list for the top ten country albums necessary for any country music fan.
My Top Ten Country Album List
My first top pick is Jamey Johnson. His country album “That Lonesome Song” has so many wonderful songs, that you cannot help but listen to it repeatedly. Hit songs from this album include, in color and high cost of living. Jamey Johnson ‘s album made my top ten list because, his music is what country music is suppose to sound like and his music hits you where you stand.
My second choice is Blake Shelton. His country album “Barn & Grill” has three wonderful hits I am sure everyone has heard. The singles include, some beach, goodbye time and nobody but me. Blake Shelton made my top ten lists because; his music can be emotional or down right fun to hear.
Trace Adkins is my third choice. His country album “Songs about Me” has top hits that include songs like, about me, Arlington and my favorite by far of his, which Jamey Johnson wrote, honky tonk badonkadonk. I am sure many people have heard that song and love dancing and singing along with it. This album made my top ten lists because he shows emotions and a fun side to his music.
Gretchen Wilson is my fourth choice. Her country music album “Here for the Party” has fun songs and is why it made my top ten lists. Her hits from this album include, all jacked up, here for the party, redneck woman and home wrecker.
Kidd Rock is my fifth choice. I know I will get some grief on this one, but I had to mention it because of one song, which I will tell you more about in this article. His album “Rock N Roll Jesus” is a side of Kidd Rock that you cannot help but fall in love with. It is an all around great album. One song in particular hit the top with country music. It is “All Summer Long”. All summer long is one of my favorite songs by Kidd Rock and this is why I placed this album in my top ten-country album list. Another hit from this album includes, rock n roll Jesus, which is a great song also, although not considered country music.
Keith Anderson will be my sixth choice. His country music album “Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll” made my top ten country album list because, this is just an all around fun album with hits like, picking wild flowers, XXL, every time I hear your name.
Kenny Chesney is my seventh choice. Ladies, you know I am right about this one and this album made my top ten list for country albums because, its filled with great songs. Kenny Chesney’s album “The Road and The Radio”, had hits that included, living in fast forward, who you’d be today, summertime, you save me and beer in Mexico. A must have album for any country fan.
For eighth place, Taylor Swift has made my top ten list for country albums because, she is proving to attract fans from all ages with her music. Her album “Taylor Swift”, with hits like, picture to burn, Tim McGraw, teardrops on my guitar, should’ve said no and our song are proof Taylor is making it big.
For ninth place, Alabama‘s country album “Mountain Music” a wonderful album that every country music fan should have. Hits from this album include, mountain music, close enough to perfect and take me down. Listen to this album and you will see why it made my top ten lists of country albums.
In tenth place, last but not least, Loretta Lynn‘s album “All Time Greatest Hits”. I know these are extremely older songs, but I love these, as I do many of Loretta Lynn’s albums. This album got me hooked on country music. I began to like country because my mom would play this kind of music. “I love you mom”, even though at the time I was not into country music much, mom would still play it. Hit singles from this album include, don’t come home a drinkin, you ain’t woman enough to take my man, fist city, coal miner’s daughter, rated X, Louisiana woman/Mississippi man, one’s on the way and many more.
