List Rules Upvote your favorite country songs about eating food.

Feeling hungry? You might want to look away from this list. Country songs about eating include some of the most memorable tunes the genre has to offer. From meat and potatoes tunes to songs that celebrate traditional southern Sunday meals, these are some of the best country songs about foods ever.

Given that much of country music is rooted squarely in the South, is it any surprise that so many of the songs on this list involve staples like chicken, biscuits, and sweet potatoes? Kacey Musgraves uses food to warn an obnoxious neighbor to “mind her own biscuits and life will be gravy.” And the Zac Brown Band reminds listeners that there is little to compare to “Chicken Fried,” accompanied by “Cold beer on a Friday night.”  Joe Diffie echoes that sentiment on “Cold Budweiser and a Sweet Tater.” Some of these songs have food in the title (“Jambalaya,” “Chicken and Biscuits,” and “I Still Like Bologna”) while others just discuss foods and eating in the lyrics (“That’s What I Love About Sundays,” “Alright”). But they all qualify as excellent country eating songs.

Listen to the tunes, and vote up your favorites. And then, go get a snack. Fried chicken is highly recommended.
