This is a list of the best country songs of 2013. From Taylor Swift to Thompson Square to Toby Keith to Casey James, to the young and hot Kacey Musgraves. Country is still on top. On top of what, you ask? Well, itself--meaning that country, is still country. Long gone are the days of Wanda Jackson. Long gone are the days of Hank Williams, and long dead are the days of Patsy Cline. Now, Toby Keith reigns supreme. Taylor Swift reigns supreme. Do you disagree with this? Do you disagree with these top country songs of 2013? 

Well then what are the greatest country songs of the year? Has this year bred the best country songs of our time? Has this year birthed the greatest country songs of all time? What does country music hold in store for the future?

Now you might ask yourself, why isn't Kenney Chesney on the list, didn't he release an album this year too, with award winning country honkin', rootin' tootin' delectable delights? Well the fault is yours alone! Without your contribution, we only get half truths. 
Country is not so convoluted and confused as pop music. There is no confusion on the genre of a song. Country music is undeniably country music.
