Country Songs That Can Make You Like Country Music

10 Country Songs Guaranteed to Make You Like Country

The following post is from melzey, who posted it on the OnSugar blog My Disfunkshion.

Four years ago, I made the big move from Orlando, Fla., to Austin, Texas to become a freshman at the University of Texas at Austin. Even though Austin is the most liberal and eccentric city in Texas, it stays true to Texas staples, like football, cowboy boots and honky-tonk country music. Coming from Orlando, I never listened to country music, and better yet, anytime I listened to a country song, I'd fall asleep. It wasn't until Ms. Taylor Swift bridged the country and pop world together when I started to open my mind to actually listening to the likes of Brad Paisley and Billy Currington.

But to those country-music skeptics who think the genre is a joke: Why don't you sample some of these songs listed below, and then get back to me. I find these songs to be crazy-catchy, so much so that you'll be wanting to two-step in no time:

1. "Taste" - Josh Abbott Band

2. "Why Don't We Just Dance" - Josh Turner

3. "Then" - Brad Paisley

4. "Chicken Fried" - Zac Brown Band

5. "Lookin' For a Good Time" - Lady Antebellum

To see the rest of the suggestions, just keep reading.

6. "Boots On" - Randy Houser

7. "Wild At Heart" - Gloriana

8. "I Know You Won't" - Carrie Underwood

9. "Don't" - Billy Currington

10. "Eight Second Ride" - Jake Owen

Umm...I was a die hard country music hater for most of my life. I cannot stand Taylor Swift. She can't sing! She's botched every song I've ever heard her perform that hasn't been touched up. She's pretty and marketable. That's why she's famous. Personally I think she's far too pop to be considered country. I think Carrie Underwood has done a lot more to renew interest in her genre without making music that veers too far into pop territory. The bands/artists that changed my mind about this style were: Carrie Underwood(obv), Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Hank Williams III, and Josh Turner.

Jason Aldean is one of my favorites!

what about Out Last Night by Kenny Chesney and Up All Night by Deric Ruttan! Both great party songs! Chicken Fried, Then, and Wild at Heart are some of my favorites too! And Dixie Chicks Long Way Round is amazing too!

Taylor Swift is way too pop. Jace Everett has some great tunes (beyond the theme song of True Blood, which is also awesome!), and I'm a huuuuuuge fan of classic country. I agree that Keith Urban, aside from being as sexy as he is, has some great songs and is great live. And Hank III is awesome as well (good outlaw style stuff).

Ever since I moved to the deep south, I really don't mind country music. Taylor Swift is not country at all to me. Dierks Bentley has some good stuff, too. LOVE Brad Paisley.

Great list. I'd definitely add a few Dixie Chicks songs to it too.

I agree I've seen Keith Urban twice in concert and he's a great performer. I now prefer less mainstream since it's become all the same and more traditional like Jason Boland or Stoney LaRue.

Taylor Swift is not the first person to blur the lines between country and pop. Faith Hill and Shania Twain did that years ago.

Thankfully T. Swift isn't on the actual list, because she's a reason why I hate country as much as I do! I think I was missing some Keith Urban and Tim McGraw!
