    Country Music: Help!

    My husband and I have decided to start DJing a couple of times a month to help make ends meet. We think it'll be the perfect opportunity for us because we'll be able to make money doing something that we are really passionate about, AND spend time together.

    We have an incredible library of music in almost all genres. However, our country music area is lacking. I would really like to flesh it out a bit to make sure we have a comfortable selection for those who like that sort of thing. However, after listening to country music allll darn day trying to find good bar/dance type songs I still have less than a handfull to choose from.

    HELP! So I don't have to listen to every country album ever made looking for the upbeat rockin choices, Mayhaps some of my Country listening FORT friends can suggest a songs that YOU think I just ought to have on hand.

    What do you like to hear when you go out?

    What songs do you find it impossible not to turn up loud and grab the nearest hairbrush/wooden spoon-mic.

    Anything to get me started and I'm sure I can add more as time goes by and we get requests. Any choices would be ultra fantastic!

    One of the top beer drinking getting rowdy songs IMO is Friends In Low Places by Garth Brooks with the 3rd verse included that he does in his live shows. You also need Hank Jr with Family Tradition and of course Gretchen Wilson with Redneck Woman. Throw in Carrie Underwood with Before He Cheats and that's a good start.

    Thanks Unk! I spent over 8 hours putting around 140 songs in my Rhapsody shopping cart and the site screwed up and lost them all on me.
    So any shortcuts to keep me from going through that again are super helpful

    Re: Country Music: Help!

    Some I could think of that are upbeat and such:

    Turn It Up - Josh Gracin
    Off The Hillbilly Hook - Trailer Choir
    Me And My Gang - Rascal Flatts
    All My Friends Say - Luke Bryan
    Johnny Cash - Jason Aldean
    Hicktown - Jason Aldean
    Down In Mississippi - Sugarland
    Settlin' - Sugarland
    Holler Back - The Lost Trailers
    Firecracker - Josh Turner
    Get Drunk And Be Somebody - Toby Keith
    Get My Drink On - Toby Keith
    As Good As I Once Was - Toby Keith
    Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy - Big & Rich
    Honkytonk Badonkadonk - Trace Adkins (<----This one makes me laugh so much.)
    My Give A Damn's Busted - Jo Dee Messina
    Country Girl - Rissi Palmer
    Dry Town - Miranda Lambert
    That Kind Of Day - Sarah Buxton (Could be a hit or miss I think)


    These are all very varied in their styles, but I think they could all work.

    Thank you Ionan!
    I had a couple of those songs, and I know but had forgotten about a couple more.
    I'll check out the rest ASAP

    Re: Country Music: Help!

    How about
    You Never Even Call Me By My Name - David Allen Coe
    Boot Scootin' Boogie - Brooks & Dunn
    Chattahoochie - Alan Jackson
    Watermelon Crawl - Tracy Byrd
    Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo - Tracy Byrd
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    If you are interested in something that is a great head bobber & booty swayer, but not necessarily a throw down gyrator, try Tequila On Ice by Daryl Worley.

    Dierks Bentley’s new song Sideways should get people up.

    A couple of songs that Carrie never released but I like a lot are Young & Beautiful & Flat on the Floor. These were the songs that she used to open up her concerts the past two years & they’ll definitely get the party up.

    Yay... an old school young country fan.

    Depending upon your environment.. the ones that always get people up and dancing remain
    T-R-O-U-B-L-E by Travis Tritt,
    Put Some Drive in Your Country by Travis Tritt,
    The Chair by George Strait (slow dance),
    The Blueest Eyes in Texas by Restless Heart (another slow one),
    I Like It.. I Love It by Tim McGraw

    ..... more later..
