Top 10 Country Songs of 2018 (So Far)
Played back-to-back, the top country songs of 2018 offer evidence that the definition of country music has never been more loosely interpreted. Pop-country, alt-country, country-rock, folk-country ... you'll find all of these sub-genres on our annual list of the best in country music.
It's a fluid list, which means as more and more songs are released, the top spots will get shuffled around. This year's version of Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road" started 2018 at the No. 1 spot, and whether you enjoy "Meant to Be" or not, there's no denying the force it has become — Florida Georgia Line have themselves their second-most successful hit of all time!
V2.0 of the list finds this track slipping to No. 5, however, behind songs by Jason Aldean, Dan + Shay and Eric Church. Three superstars (Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton and Luke Bryan) fell out of the Top 10 Songs list all together, while new songs from Chris Janson and Morgan Wallen join the ranks.
Did we get it right? Should any of these songs be lower or not included at all? Yes, we're reading your comments and considering your submission as the year trucks along.
