Some of the best songs came from the 1970s and the 1980s as well. 

These are songs from top classic country artists such as Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill, and LeAnn Rimes. Vote up the greatest 1990s country songs, or add any good song that makes you love '90s country music, it if it isn't already on the list.
