BORN Country’s 505 Favorite Country Songs Of The 90s!
130. Alan Jackson – I Don’t Even Know Your Name
Album: Who I Am
I was on a HUGE Jeff Foxworthy kick back in the mid-90s. Being that Alan Jackson has been my personal favorite artist since I discovered his music back when I was a child, when this video hit, I was all in! I recall laughing my head off at Foxworthy as he over-reacted and ran all over the place trying to avoid his “waitress.” When I thought the fun was all over, there was Jackson in the last shot with his blackened out tooth! Ha! This was another #1 hit for Alan Jackson.
129. Clint Black – Something That We Do
Album: Nothin But The Taillights
The “newest” song on this week’s list comes from the one and only, Clint Black! Nothin’ But The Taillights may very well be my favorite album by Clint, and this is no doubt, one of his very best love songs. Black took this one to the #2 spot on the country music charts in 1997.
128. Alabama – Down Home
Album: Pass It On Down
The fourth single and third consecutive #1 country hit from Alabama’s album, Pass It On Down is what country livin’ is all about. Alabama’s 90’s catalog doesn’t get much stronger than this right here. It gets a little strong… but not much… We’ll get to those songs later on!
127. Collin Raye – That’s My Story
“You know the time comes when a wise man knows, the best thing that he can do is just look her in the eye and beg for mercy and face the bitter truth…”
I think that about says it all right there. At least make sure the hammock is in the yard still when you claim you fell asleep in it! HA!
126. Alan Jackson – Wanted
Album: Here In The Real World
Alan Jackson has been recording more of the best broken-hearted country music over the last 25 years than anyone else in the business. The second single released to radio by Jackson in the 90’s is a perfect example. How last resort is posting an ad in the newspaper personals (No kids, Tinder was not an option back then) in order to find/redeem your love? “Wanted” peaked at the #3 spot on the country charts.
125. Travis Tritt – Put Some Drive In Your Country
Album: Country Club
What a rocking’ country song we have here! Referencing artists from Roy Acuff and George Jones to Waylon Jennings and Hank ,Williams Jr., Tritt sings about how he grew up on the classics and would one day mix the sounds of country and rock’n’roll together. That he did! Peaking at #28 on the U.S. Country charts, radio stations at the time refused to play the song being that it was too far from the “country sound”… Current radio DJ’s, please take note.
124. Tanya Tucker – Two Sparrows In A Hurricane
Album: Can’t Run From Yourself
Here’s a song that started at a much higher number on our list, but kept gaining a better position each week when I listened to it. This is one of twelve Top 10 singles achieved by Tucker throughout the 90’s. Just a few months back, Tanya announced that new music and a tour was on the way. How exciting is that? Can’t come soon enough, I say! “Sparrows” reached the #2 spot on the country charts.
123. Mark Chesnutt – Let It Rain
Album: Greatest Hits
This is hands-down, one of Mark Chesnutt’s greatest songs. I thought for sure this one would hit our Top 100, but landed just outside. Don’t worry though, there is still plenty Chesnutt to come on our countdown! “Let It Rain” reached the #8 spot on the country charts.
122. Brooks & Dunn – Brand New Man
Album: Brand New Man
Right here is where it all began! Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn burst onto the country music scene with their debut country single, “Brand New Man,” in 1991. Wasting no time, B&D took the song straight to the top of the country music charts in September of the same year.
121. Dwight Yoakam – It Only Hurts When I Cry
Album: If There Was A Way
Dwight co-wrote this song with legendary country/pop star, “King Of The Road,” Roger Miller! This would be one of the last songs that Miller would write on, passing away in 1992. Dwight took this song of heartbreak to #7 on the U.S. Billboard country chart.
That wraps up another week! We are only 20 songs away from the Top 100! This is starting to get very exciting on our part, so we hope you continue to enjoy the hits each week as we near the top songs!
