Country music is the most popular music genre in the United States. Its roots came from the early 20th century from the rural south, which reflected times of hardship, political turmoil, and love. The country songs of the 2000s either harkened back to more classic sounds of earlier alt-country songs such as the Dixie Chicks did, or relied heavily on pop influences, like Shania Twain and Taylor Swift. There are also a ton of great hits that came out of the 1980's and the 1990's as well. 


These are songs from top classic country artists such as Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, Faith Hill, and Lonestar. Vote up the greatest 2000s country songs, or add a song that makes you love '00s country music, if it isn't already on the list.
