The Boot put together their list of the Top 10 Country Songs of the 2010s. Although it’s subjective, they’re all hits, and some are career-changing songs. Here’s the list:
1. Little Big Town: Girl Crush – There was some confusion and controversy about what the song meant . . . but everyone kind of forgot about that when it became a huge it, winning two Grammys, two CMAs, and a CMT Award in 2014
2. Sam Hunt: Body Like A Back Road – It was THE song for 2017. There is a reason it used to hold the record for being at number 1 for 34 weeks.
3. Miranda Lambert: The House That Built Me – It was her first Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, and it won her a Grammy, two CMAs, and three ACMs in 2010.
4. Cole Swindell: You Should Be Here – In 2015 it became a tribute to his late father, and it’s become an “anthem for others who have experienced personal loss.”
5. Eric Church: Springsteen – One of my favorite songs of 2012. It was inspired by a girl he took to a Springsteen show, and also how he reveres the way The Boss has built his career.
