HaleighT’s List Of The Top 10 Jason Aldean Songs. As all of my friends and family know, I am a huge Jason Aldean fan. This is not a new thing, (I am no bandwagon jumper) I’ve been a fan since before I could even drive! I remember like it was yesterday, my best friend Taylor picked me up for school every morning (she was older) and we’d jam to Aldean while we raced not to be late. I have seen him in concert multiple times and I own all of his albums. The earrings don’t bother me, I love him in some Wrangler Retros and I appreciate that he isn’t stick thin! As for recent media, well that is his families business and I won’t touch on that at this time. He puts on a great show and sounds awesome live (some artists can’t say as much). Monday night he won the Touring Artist of the Year award at the ACA’s, so I know I am not the only one with these opinions. But, back to the matter at hand, here is the list of my Top 10 Aldean songs! Now these can, and often do, change order. Some might not make the list and others not mentioned might, depends on my mood (heck, it changed 5 times while I was writing this post). Take a look and tell me what you think! Song/ Album 10. Amarillo Sky/ Jason Aldean 9. Good To Go/ Jason Aldean 8. Hicktown/ Jason Aldean 7. My Kinda Party/ My Kinda Party 6. Walking Away/ Night Train 5. Days Like These/ My Kinda Party 4. Night Train/ Night Train 3. Do You Wish It Was Me/ Relentless 2. The Truth/ Wide Open 1. See You When I See You/ My Kinda Party
The Top 5 Country Songs That Will Have You Creeped Out! Being a fan of country music my whole life, I have grown up and so has my take on lyrics. There are many songs that I would sing word for word as a child and not have a clue what was going on. For example, Garth Brooks’ “Two Of A Kind, Workin’ On A Full House” was a favorite of mine, but in the early 90s I had no clue the song talks about hands of cards. Back then, the only thing that came to mind when full house was said was Uncle Jesse and Michelle… Luckily now, I do understand the majority of the songs I listen to. But one thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that some songs still creep me out! I would hate when certain songs would come on the radio when I would be in the car with my mom at night. They flat out scared me! Below is the list, in my opinion, of the Top 5 scariest songs in country music. Happy Halloween! Top 5 Scary Songs: 1. The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia – Reba McEntire 2. Beaches Of Cheyenne – Garth Brooks 3. Midnight In Montgomery – Alan Jackson 4. The Ride – David Allan Coe 5. The Thunder Rolls – Garth Brooks Apparently Garth confused and scared me as a child…
The Top 10 George Strait Songs According To HaleighT. George Strait is never too far from my thoughts but with the announcement of his final tour, it seems he is all I can think of. I decided to do a Top 10 list of my favorite songs of his.

Not just George…OF ALL TIME! That is 9 songs right there and I haven’t even got to the Top 10. Below are the songs I’ve decided on (it wasn’t easy). I’d love to know your favorite George songs, so do me a favor and comment below! Top 10: 1. “The Chair” 2. “I Can Still Make Cheyenne” 3. “She’ll Leave You With A Smile” 4. “Easy Come, Easy Go” 5. “It Just Comes Natural” 6. “You Look So Good In Love” 7. “Cowboys Like Us” 8. “Amarillo By Morning” 9. “Blue Clear Sky” 10. “The Seashores Of Old Mexico“
The Best Songs To Hear While Showing Some American Pride ! First off this is just my opinion, there hasn’t been an official vote or anything, they are just all some of my favorites.
