Honorable Mentions

Alabama- “Dixieland Delight” Be sure to chug your beer during the fiddle solo!

Skynyrd- “Write it in a Song” Bong Rip when they mention the grass in Tennessee

And of course “Rocky Top” Pretty much just pound Jack Daniels when this song comes on

Great choices for the DAC songs. Gotta love the X Rated album and Never Even Called Me By My Name is one of the all time best songs to drink to.

I just started listing to Whitey Morgan this year. He is damn good. Never thought a Yankee from Michigan could sing country like that, but he’s the real deal.

I would never need a country playlist because country music is all basically good and the stations come in free of static where ever you are at. My very favorite type of music is generally Rock/Poprock but on those stations I have to wade through a lot of crappy songs I don’t want to hear and if I’m on the road, tuning into a good rock or pop-rock station is a challenge.

Country music stations always tune in and the music is always enjoyable.

Waylon–Ladies Love Outlaws, Me and Bobbi McGee, If You Could Touch Her at All, Good Hearted Woman, A Couple More Years, Let’s All Help the Cowboys Sing the Blues, The Taker, I’ve Always Been Crazy, Billy.

Kris–Help Me Make it Through the Night
Johnny–Green, Green Grass of Home. Tennessee Flat Top Box. I Walk the Line. Wreck of the Old '97.
