Mister Independent

Yep, some of my favorite classics are Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton and my one of my favorite new Country artists is Brandy Clark.

Lucas Hagg

Ring of Fire: number 1 on this list, 3rd on top 10 Johnny Cash songs….. What

Richard Hassenplug

+Kaleb DeGroot each there own

Lester Hall

+Kaleb DeGroot exactly right most of the top 10 here are not really true country.

Barbara Rene

No sense listing songs that I thought should have been on this list, but whatever. The Dixie Chicks on the honorable mention list? Really? I don’t think they should have been on that list, that’s for sure. But, there are lots of great country tunes, so I guess we should just enjoy what we like.

Bastiaan Van Neer

where is country roads of john denver

Mister Independent

I personally think Not Ready to Make Nice is better suited for the Honorable Mentions than Wide Open Space. Also, I would also move Loretta Lynn to the actual list. Plus, I would add I Will Always Love You by Dolly Parton and especially It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels by Kitty Wells. You can’t have a list of Country Songs of All Time and exclude Kitty Wells from it, especially since she paved the way for all the female Country singers.

Vernon Parker

agreed, it’s more well known than Wide Open Spaces

sdeeley1949

hello!! they forgot a REAL COUNTRY VOICE!!! KEITH WHITLEY!!! HANK WILLIAMS, SR!!! Idiots put this together! Loretta Lynn is the first Lady of country music! George Jones the best representative of true country music! Johnny Cash my backside, could not sing, he talked thru songs, better get your hearing checked whoever compiled this mess!!

Abubakr Mohammed Jamal

Stephen Carrico

The dance by Garth brooks should be number one

Stephen Carrico

Friends in low places is good tho

Jimmie Boling

How can you have a top ten country music songs, and not have the first lady of country music NOT on the list? Coal Miners Daughter should have been number one or real close, not an honorable mention.

Killer_ Street_Machines

Devil Went Down to Georgia was only a honorable mention

bigtruckboy20011

No George Strait? I agree with some of the list, but come on.

Granger Smith doesn’t technically chew tobacco, but he knows how to put a good dip in. For the encore of every live show, he throws on a pair of his high-school overalls and a trucker hat, cracks open an ice-cold silver bullet, packs a dip into his lip and returns to the stage as someone else: Earl Dibbles Jr. The alter ego was just something funny he came up with, an idea spurred by boredom one day four years ago at his parents’ ranch. But country fans proved hungry for the character’s country-boy hilarity. They wanted more.

Smith took the American flag and ran with it. In fact, the singer has not-so-quietly built an empire around Earl in the form of Yee Yee Nation, a following of gun-toting, truck-driving, boot-wearing, muddy and proud rednecks. The brand has grown to include original songs by Earl Dibbles Jr., music videos, merch and even a Yee Yee Energy drink in a camo can, which will hit shelves this year.

The shows sell out in minutes. Once at the stage, fans sporting similar overalls and white tank tops shout “Yee Yee!” in anticipation. Cell phones fly up at the sound of a shotgun being loaded: the audio cue for Earl’s big entrance. The setup is so boldly different than what else is out there, it’s no wonder Smith is on the fast-track to superstardom. Sure, his alter ego was born on the fly, but it wasn’t a fluke. The Texas A&M graduate and former Corps of Cadets member has always been business smart, and the redneck patois is just another strategy. Creating Earl Dibbles Jr. was a way to set Smith apart. It worked.

“Granger always says, ‘Everybody has talent in this business, it’s just about finding the backdoor to go in if everyone is going in the front door,’” says Tyler Smith, Granger’s manager and younger brother by four years. “We’ve always strived to do things differently. If this person was doing this, we’re doing the exact opposite until something sticks.”
