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.
