Country music is the most popular genre of music and its popularity stems from classic country songs such as these from the 1990s that have paved the way for other, more current artists. Country songs are steeped in Americana and tell the story of ordinary, hard working, hard drinking, and long suffering people just like many of us. 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.
