‘Blue’ and gold: My Top 10 favorite new country songs of 2016

By Bobby Ross Jr. 

Just for fun, here are my Top 10 favorite new country songs of 2016.

A word of warning: My iMusic playlist includes much more classic country than new country. In recent years, I find I don’t recognize half the singers on the CMA and ACM awards — and I don’t understand the appeal of some of the ones I do.

Still, there’s a 99.5 percent chance I’m missing awesome songs that belong on this list. Fellow country fans, please feel free to tell me what those songs are.

As for non-fans of God’s favorite genre of music, you have my sympathy.

    I know the young couple in the Dan + Shay video. Lacy grew up here in Huntsville and attended the same church. Those were her real parents and husband in the video with her. Her folks just moved to Nashville this past summer now that all of their children are there.
