Another week has passed and we are back with another installment of BORN Country’s Top 505 Country Singles of the 90’s! While I stated at the beginning that these songs aren’t exactly in an order from favorite to least favorite, there will definitely be more well known songs the further we get down to it.
I have also decided that the last 50 spots WILL be reserved for my absolute favorites of the decade, so that will be exciting!… In about a year! haha.
Here we go! Another 10 from the list! As always, comment below, follow the blog, share it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other way that you can think of! Help get the word out to other readers! Enjoy!
BORN Country’s Top 505 Country Singles Of the 1990’s!!!
485. Aaron Tippin – Working Man’s PH.D
Album: Call Of The Wild
During every one of his live shows (Non-acoustic), Tippin puts together a bicycle, piece by piece, on stage while performing this song in order to donate it to Toys For Tots. Although he has long lost count, his bike donation count is long past the 1,000 gift point. Very cool!
484. Lorrie Morgan – Watch Me
Album: Watch Me
Lorrie Morgan had a steady run of hits throughout the 90’s. Morgan was married to late country legend, Keith Whitley until his tragic passing. They’re son, Jesse Keith Whitley is currently recording and attempting to break into the country music scene.
483. Doug Stone – Born In The Dark
Album: Faith In Me, Faith In You
Shortly after Stone’s #12 charting single, he suffered a nearly fatal heart attack in 1995, follow by a mild stroke in 1996. Despite few attempts since, battles with his personal life have kept him from much touring or recording since.
482. Sammy Kershaw – She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful
Album: Haunted Heart
Despite hitting the Top 40 Country Billboard chart 23 times throughout the 90’s, this is Kershaw’s only #1 song in his career. However, this will NOT be the only time we see Sammy on this list!
481. Brooks & Dunn – A Man This Lonely
I’ve stated elsewhere numerous times that Ronnie Dunn possesses the best voice in country music history. This song right here, is a prime example.
480. Pam Tillis – Shake The Sugar Tree
Album: Homeward Looking Angel
Daughter of country legend Mel Tillis, Pam is another artist on this list with only one #1 single, despite having released a handful of successful singles. This song went to #3 though, being one of her most successful radio hits.
479. Dixie Chicks – I Can Love You Better
Album: Wide Open Spaces
Dixie Chicks hit country radio strongly with their very first single in 1997. “Better” went to #7 on the Hot Country Billboard charts. The Chicks would go on to release 6 more singles in the 90’s, which all would top their debut song.
478. Marty Stuart – Tempted
Marty Stuart is a top contender on my “To see perform live” bucket list. Amy and I missed him by only one day during our trip to Nashville this past January, at the Opry. We plan on another trip down there soon, so we’ll have to plan accordingly!
477. George Strait – So Much Like My Dad
Album: Holding My Own
George Strait took the 2nd single from “Holding My Own” to #3 on the Billboard Hot Singles chart in 1992. Even when a song is this good, I suppose they can’t ALL be #1’s!
476. Chris LeDoux – Life Is A Highway
Album: One Road Man
If you missed my post the other night, this past Monday was the 10 year mark since the sad passing of country and rodeo legend, Chris LeDoux. As the majority of his radio releases failed to reach even the top 40, this one was no different, topping out at #64. Despite chart performance, LeDoux’s version of this Tom Cochrane hit is INFINITELY superior to the dreadful cover by Rascal Flatts in 2006.
There you have it! 30 songs into the list! I sure hope everyone is having as much fun reading about and revisiting the songs on this list as I am!
I have a pretty wild work schedule this week, so hopefully I will get to put in another mid week blog entry before the next edition of the countdown. Amy and I will be seeing another 90’s country legend in concert NEXT week, so I can’t wait to tell everyone about that one! HUGE bucket list concert!
