Welcome to the modern landscape of country music, where we have gems like "Say Something," an irresistibly addictive tune hailing from the synergy between R&B's smooth-as-butter Justin Timberlake and country's steely Chris Stapleton. Lately, there's been an uptick of country artists joining forces with pop megastars. Along with the fresh JT and Chris Stapleton duet, we have, for example, "Babe" by Sugarland and Taylor Swift and "Take Back Home Girl" by Chris Young and Tori Kelly. Many big Nashville stars, like Kane Brown and Carrie Underwood, now also blur the line between country's folksy sincerity and pop's catchy hooks in their solo work.
Selecting the very best of pop-infused country, we've curated the perfect playlist for you to blast on your car trips, cowboy boots optional.
