My top 10 male country singers are the following: (In no particular order)
Waylon Jennings. He played the Balladeer on Dukes of Hazzard and sang the theme song “Good Ol’ Boys”. I love his singing voice, as well as his speaking voice, when he spoke up at crucial moments in the show. It was usually when the General Lee was flying through the sky or when Bo or Luke was stuck behind bars. (The cliffhanger was always at a commercial break). When I hear the song on the radio, it still takes me back to Hazzard County. Ahhh…

Alan Jackson. He has been around for years and years and has so many songs that there is no way I can name them all. His hit “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere” is my theme song on those long, hard office days. I just can’t get it out of my head. One thing is for sure, when I hear his songs, I just smile and am suddenly relaxed. It is just something about his voice. He is cute, too.

Garth Brooks. Garth is one strange cookie in my opinion. I love his voice and his energy back when he was touring, but I cannot get over the whole Trisha Yearwood scandal. Oh, well. “Two Pina Coladas” is still one of my favorites. It made me laugh the first time I heard it, and it still does today.

Kenny Chesney. This guy is always on the beach or singing about the beach. I don’t mind! His voice has a very romantic feel and even in his up beat songs, you want to break out a margarita and sing right along. He is the party go-to guy.

Clint Black. I was never really into Clint Black until a few years ago when he released the song “Nothin’ but the Taillights”. It is the ultimate revenge song, and it is a favorite of mine. Heck, I bought the whole CD just for that song!

Brad Paisley. He is one that has one heck of a funny bone. His songs are hilarious and you never really know where he is going with them. They are just good fun songs to listen to and dance to. Nice job Brad!

Kenny Rogers. The Gambler himself. I grew up watching those movies and singing that song, “The Gambler”. Every time I sit down to play cards, even Go Fish with my son that song goes through my head. In recent years, he put out a song called “The Rose”. I was doubtful at first, and thought he needed to retire, but I ate my words when I heard it. Very nice song, Kenny.

George Strait. Wow. There is so much about this man, how can I not list all his songs? One story that comes to mind is “Amarillo by Morning”. My Dad insisted he did not listen to George Strait, but he played that song over and over when I was younger. He played it a lot. When I told him who it was that was singing it, he denied it. Still does to this day! Funny, I really like Mr. Strait, and I hope he never, ever retires. Someday I will see him live, and watch him perform my favorite song, “I Cross My Heart”, from his movie “Pure Country”.

Toby Keith. Toby, Toby, Toby… You are too funny and I love your videos. You are such a ham! I absolutely love the song “Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue (The Angry American)” and every time it comes on the radio, I BLAST it. He has many, many good songs and is definitely worth checking into.

Jeff Foxworthy. Now, I know that you are trying to tell me that Jeff is not a singer, he is a comedian. Yes, he is a funny, funny man, but he sings, too! Have you ever listened to one of his comedy albums? (I have them all and yes, he does sing.) He has some actual songs on them and has also released a Christmas song called “Redneck 12 days of Christmas”. He is absolutely hilarious!
