It's hard to believe, but we have finally arrived at the end of 2020. I think we can all agree that a good portion of this year was a total disaster, but at least we got some great music!

A few months ago, I put together a quick article outlining some of my favorite country songs of the year. Now that it's December, I wanted to create another, more final list. I'm not gonna lie to you, it was tough. I did include a few songs/artists from my last list, but I ended up weighing my options a little more carefully this time. I tried to pick ONLY songs that were released in 2020 to narrow it down a little more.

I don't know about you, but good music has really helped me get through this dumpster fire of a year. I'm so thankful that artists, especially country artists, were still able to bring us a little joy with their songs, even though we were unable to see them live.

There were so many more songs that I could've included on this list, but this is what I ended up with. Here are my ten favorite country releases of 2020:

  • "Whiskey Sunrise" - Chris Stapleton
  • "Shut Up Sheila" - Ashley McBryde
  • "Skeletons" - Brothers Osborne
  • "Black Motorcycle" - Kassi Ashton
  • "Hell of a View" - Eric Church
  • "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?" - Mickey Guyton
  • "Next Girl" - Carly Pearce
  • "More Than My Hometown" - Morgan Wallen
  • "Janice at the Hotel Bar" Hailey Whitters
  • "Redwood Tree" - Cam
