  1. I also love Cattleman's Gun. I read a lot of Western novels growing up (thank you Louis L'Amour) and watched a lot of John Wayne movies and this song is so good that I must have had it on repeat in my car for at least 2 weeks.

  2. Never heard of the top 2 songs, but the Eric Church song is one of my favorites! Glad to see he is being recognized for his songwriting and singing talent!

  3. Sarah Darling "Blue Guitar!" What a song. And what a list. This list looks as though it was actually compiled based on actually talent and integrity. What a welcome change! Thanks!

  4. I love Sarah Darling's album! I'm so glad she's on this countdown, and that someone else knows about this amazing talent besides me! If you haven't checked on her album "Every Monday Morning," it's definitely worth the listen.

  5. Great list! Although I think "Last Call" by Leeann Womack should have been #1.

    Also, kudos on picking the Sarah Darling song! I thought I was alone in feeling that song was a stand out on the album. I guess with so many good songs it's hard to determine one as the "stand out" but Blue Guitar really does it for me.

  6. Yes! I completely agree! Sarah Darling's album is incredible! She totally deserves to make it on this list! I love the song "Whenever It Rains!" What a talented girl!

  7. Glad to see that Bryan White made the list twice! I love his song "The Little Things." If you haven't heard it yet head over to www.givmusic.com where you can download it for free!

  8. Love Jamey Johnson's "My Way to You", it is such an amazing song -- its hard to understand why radio let this one fail! Thanks for including Jamey's song! Also love seeing Wade Hayes making the list twice - his independently released album is just such a gift to his fans! Loved Eric Church's song, too - completely fitting of the times!

  9. The Steeldrivers album has been out since Jan 2008.

  10. I can't believe you left out Shuttin Detroit Down by John Rich..are you nuts?

  11. I love cattleman's gun! Anytime I need to be encouraged I listen to the song. WOW!

  12. Cattleman's Gun is an awesome song, so are most of the cuts off that album. Jamey Johnson should have been in the top 2 and I can't believe that none of the songs off of Jason Aldean's Wide Open made your list??

  13. It is great to see Levi Stone by Donna Ulisse on the list...this is such a haunting story and a true one at that.
