There is not enough room to list them all. Maybe we can make a list of the best country songs. That list would be MUCH shorter.

Hank Williams Sr. also cannot be included in this list because he's awesome.

Except for Counrty Charly Pride, his voice is sweet. But back to the rotten ones, Achky Breaky Heart totally reaks. As well as anything by Lee Greenwood, anyone who is the heart throb of 60 year old women in red white and blue big undies is out!!

Agreed on both counts. I'll take Johnny Cash to block,


How's that for a trifecta?

The new stuff is solid CRAP. The really old stuff from the artists I mentioned is actually pretty good

Seems to me that most country music in he last 20 years or so is just old Eagles , Poco, Flying Burrito Brothers, etc. songs regurgitated. Grew up with Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, and a few others who performed actual country music. Never was a big fan (my parents liked it), but it was a unique art form then. Can't think of any decent country song made after that era. RR hasn't fared much better in recent years, but it is better.

Change that to Top 40 and the time frame to the last 20 years and I'll agree

Wasn't that Bobby Bare?


Actually, I like Willie, though he's been known to misfire once or twice....Like that thing he did with Julio Iglesias. ACK!

There was a song in the 70's called "Kick me Jesus through the Goalposts of Life". The tune was as bad as the name would indicate.

The first music I heard over the airwaves was from an AM country station in the early fifties in Colorado. Hank Sr. Patsy, Flatt & Scruggs, etc. Of the good ones, I'd have to include Merle Haggard. If for no other reason, he was one crazy SOB. And even as a hippy, I loved his "Okie from Muskogee".

Waylon Jennings had a song that comes up now and then - Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys. That one's a good to sing after a few heinies.

I've been keeping this one all to myself for a number of years. It's time to set it free:

"I jack-knifed when she slammed on the airbrakes of love."

Thank-you.
Thank-you very much.

Hey, blame the station. They played it all. Back then, there was little if any distinction between the two types of music. Because of them, I included Blugrass in my favorites list of music later in life. And don't be knockin Hank Sr. and Patsy. They pumped out the best cry in your beer music I ever heard.

Hey, I'm not dissin' Hank & Patsy. It's just that they're not even in the same class as Lester & Earl.

It's like putting Scott Joplin & Elton John (each masters at their craft) in the same basket because they both play piano. It just don't work

My vote for the worst ever would be "Boot Scootin' Boogie", by Brooks & Dunn. Aside from being completely horrible, it got me kicked out of a diner when I was a teenager. I was high as a kite in a Waffle House, the song came on the jukebox, and I couldn't quit laughing at it's overt whack-ness. After a while, the waitress asked me and my friends to skedaddle. Ah, memories...

This one stinks, but has a great title, by Those Darn Accordions - There's a Dumbass on the Mountain.

A few that are hard to beat:

"You're the reason our kids are ugly"
"You're not the best, but you're the best that I can do" (actually a really good song)
"Always marry an ugly girl"
