50 Most Annoying Country Songs of All Time

Old Town Road, Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus

Old Town Road, Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus

Do we even have to say why this one is on here? It was played approximately 17818187158484 times and even had a ton of remixes. Stahp.

Watermelon Crawl, Tracy Byrd

Watermelon Crawl, Tracy Byrd

This song is honestly just really silly and not in a good way. It's something that can only be played at a hoedown or a hootenanny.

I Want My Mullet Back, Billy Ray Cyrus

I Want My Mullet Back, Billy Ray Cyrus

Way too overplayed. Also unpopular opinion: Billy Ray Cyrus is seriously overhyped and not even that good.

Chicken Fried, Zac Brown Band

Chicken Fried, Zac Brown Band

Did he just stockpile everything he thinks a stereotypical person from the south would like? There’s no substance to this song. Chicken is good and all, but a full song about it? No, thanks.

That Don’t Impress Me Much, Shania Twain

That Don’t Impress Me Much, Shania Twain

A title to match everyone’s feelings, perfect. Fans definitely weren’t impressed by her attempt at blending pop and country. Shania Twain should stick with what she's good at.

Rocky Top, Osborne Brothers

Rocky Top, Osborne Brothers

An obnoxiously fast rhythm, a shrill voice, and talking about getting with a half-cat woman on a mountain. This song is a trip that we didn’t sign up for.

Life is a Highway, Rascal Flatts

Life is a Highway, Rascal Flatts

This song is way too overplayed not to be considered annoying.  Anyone on a road trip that plays this song should be banned from playlists for the rest of their life.

Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, Florida Georgia Line

Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, Florida Georgia Line

They bizarrely referenced a bunch of conspiracy theories in this song just to make their point that they were country? More than a little stupid, if you ask us.

Dirt Road Anthem, Jason Aldean

Dirt Road Anthem, Jason Aldean

This song wound up being a hit, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying. Any country-rap song is an almost immediate dislike.

Are You Ready For Some Football, Hank Williams

Are You Ready For Some Football, Hank Williams

Please… just turn it off. It’s not even good. The south likes football and all, but a full song about it is just too much.

Truck Yeah, Tim McGraw

Truck Yeah, Tim McGraw

There’s literally no substance to this song. It’s just so he can yell “Truck Yeah!” as much as possible.

The Chicken in Black, Johnny Cash

The Chicken in Black, Johnny Cash

Even country legends like Johnny Cash have rough patches. This song is a parody to his song "Man in Black," but it’s easily one of the most perplexing pieces of music out there.

She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy, Kenny Chesney

She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy, Kenny Chesney

This one was a surprise. Chesney has been known to record some of the most moving and intelligent songs in country music. We have no idea what happened here.

Ain’t Worth The Whiskey, Cole Swindell

Ain’t Worth The Whiskey, Cole Swindell

This song is one gigantic grammatical error, and we just can’t get over that. We’ll pass.

Take Me Home Country Roads, John Denver

Take Me Home Country Roads, John Denver

Once again, super overplayed and overhyped. Just go home already, John Denver.

Stuck Like Glue, Sugarland

Stuck Like Glue, Sugarland

Sugarland has been known to push boundaries, but this song crossed the boundary between good and bad. After this song has been stuck in your head for two weeks, you tend to get really sick of it.

Save a Horse [Ride a Cowboy], Big & Rich

Save a Horse [Ride a Cowboy], Big & Rich

This break out songs pop-rap-country mix didn’t sit well with most country fans, thus rendering it just obnoxious. It loses any charm after the first listen.

Kick the Dust Up, Luke Bryan

Kick the Dust Up, Luke Bryan

Another catchy tune but the writing for this one is pathetic and a true nightmare. Don’t rhyme ‘up’ with ‘up.’ All we ask is for a little creativity.

Red Solo Cup, Toby Keith

Red Solo Cup, Toby Keith

When the artist himself says he regrets singing this then you know it’s bad. In Keith’s own words: “It’s so stupid, it’s good.” The good part is honestly still up for debate.

Rap is Crap, Curt Henning

Rap is Crap, Curt Henning

You’re welcome to have your own opinions on music, but don’t tear down a whole genre just because you don’t like it. Plenty of people think Curt Henning is crap.

Cotton Eyed Joe, Ricky Skaggs

Cotton Eyed Joe, Ricky Skaggs

I’ll ask it again: do we really have to say why this one is on here? It's overplayed, annoying, and used as the epitome of trashy country music.

Corn Star, Craig Morgan

Corn Star, Craig Morgan

Forgive us for the pun, but this song is just corny. Let's stop with the crappy puns in country music. It's time.

Picture to Burn, Taylor Swift

Picture to Burn, Taylor Swift

Remember when Taylor Swift was an actually decent country singer? This song isn’t it. We can see why she made the transition to pop now.

Cruise, Florida Georgia Line

Cruise, Florida Georgia Line

This song was everywhere, and we mean everywhere. Due to its inescapability, this song automatically lands as annoying.

Rich, Maren Morris

Rich, Maren Morris

I take back what I said earlier, not all women’s country songs are about taking out their abusive husbands/boyfriends. Some are about how rich they’d be if they got paid every time a guy disappointed them.

Back Porch Bottle Service, A.J. McLean

Back Porch Bottle Service, A.J. McLean

A Backstreet Boy singing country? Most country purists would call this blasphemy. Not to mention, he doesn’t do it well. This song is subpar at best.

Achy Breaky Heart, Billy Ray Cyrus

Achy Breaky Heart, Billy Ray Cyrus

Sorry Billy Ray, this one just gets really old really quickly. This is another one that people point to as "awful country songs." We agree with them.

Brown Chicken Brown Cow, Trace Adkins

Brown Chicken Brown Cow, Trace Adkins

This song was obviously intended to be tongue-in-cheek, but didn’t quite work out and just wound out being ridiculous and annoying. 

(Image via YouTube)

Country Rap, The Bellamy Brothers

Country Rap, The Bellamy Brothers

Just because it’s supposedly the first of something, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. The Bellamy Brothers claim that this was the first country-rap song, but with its silly lyrics, it just can’t be anything but annoying.

Honky Tonk Badonkadonk, Trace Adkins

Honky Tonk Badonkadonk, Trace Adkins

This song is all about women in the wrong way. It’s not cute. Get lost. No woman was serenaded with by a song like this. 

(Image via YouTube)

Tear in My Beer, Hank Williams

Tear in My Beer, Hank Williams

This sounds like every stereotypical older country song. Booze, a stagnant beat, and crying about a breakup.

Goodbye Earl, The Dixie Chicks

Goodbye Earl, The Dixie Chicks

Okay, every guy country song is about girls and trucks. Every woman’s country song is about taking out their husbands/boyfriends, apparently.

I Was Jack (You Were Diane), Jake Owen

I Was Jack (You Were Diane), Jake Owen

This song makes us nostalgic, but that’s about all it’s good for. This is just a ripoff of an American classic, and we’re not a fan.

(Image via YouTube)

Hotdamalama, Parmalee

Hotdamalama, Parmalee

Hotdamalama is Parmalee's last grasp before they fade into obscurity. This song was utterly awful, but what can you expect from a third rail pop-country band?

Singles You Up, Jordan Davis

Singles You Up, Jordan Davis

An unexceptional song that’s sung by an equally trite artist. Who is this guy anyway? 

(Image via YouTube)

Hell of a Night, Dustin Lynch

Hell of a Night, Dustin Lynch

Dustin Lynch is a perfect of bro-country. This song is literally just about being with a girl in his truck. Not a whole lot of substance, and we’re also back to the demeaning women trope. Again.

(Image via YouTube)

1994, Jason Aldean

1994, Jason Aldean

We get why he made this song, 1994 was the best year for country music. Too bad this song would’ve been hated then just as much as it is now. It’s literally just a poorly done rap song disguised as country. Country and rap don’t go together. Take the hint.

(Image via YouTube)

B*tches, Mitchell Tenpenny

B*tches, Mitchell Tenpenny

Another bro-country anthem, more pop than country and talking about how he’s so tired of all the “b*tches.” Cool, they’re probably more tired of you, honey.

Downtown’s Dead, Sam Hunt

Downtown’s Dead, Sam Hunt

Country is supposed to be about back roads and rolling fields of whatever crop happens to be in season, right? Apparently, Hunt didn’t get that memo since this song is very much about a big city. That’s, like, the opposite of the point of country, right?

(Image via YouTube)

Meant to Be, Florida Georgia Line ft. Bebe Rexha

Meant to Be, Florida Georgia Line ft. Bebe Rexha

Another overplayed song that isn’t near as good as the hype makes it seem. That seems to be a theme with most pop-country hits.

Pirate Flag, Kenny Chesney

Pirate Flag, Kenny Chesney

The sentiments of freedom and “fight the power” embedded in this song is admirable, but the hook of the song is beyond cringey. “Island girls” aren’t plunder to loot, no matter how much of a “pirate” you are!

Mean Girls, Sugarland

Mean Girls, Sugarland

Sugarland’s back with another questionable song that’s sure to get stuck in your head. If it wasn’t bringing middle school catfights to life, perhaps it’d be fun.

Vacation, Thomas Rhett

Vacation, Thomas Rhett

Thomas Rhett brought us the heartwarming hit Die A Happy Man, but Vacation lacks both the engaging chorus and relatability to be considered for his greatest hits album.

Body Like a Back Road, Sam Hunt

Body Like a Back Road, Sam Hunt

Just why… This song epitomizes objectification yet blasted on country radio stations for months on end.

This Is How We Roll, Florida Georgia Line feat. Luke Bryan

 This Is How We Roll, Florida Georgia Line feat. Luke Bryan

Who told these country boys that they can rap, and who keeps hyping them up for it? Rappers everywhere are rolling their eyes.

Country Girl (Shake It for Me), Luke Bryan

 Country Girl (Shake It for Me), Luke Bryan

Since when did southern hospitality include belittling women to their bodies? Someone needs to teach these country boys about basic respect.

Beautiful Drug, Zac Brown Band

 Beautiful Drug, Zac Brown Band

Another song about women blah blah blah, but that’s not what makes this song annoying. This weird mix of EDM and country styles got a subpar review from Billboard, saying, “‘Beautiful Drug’ doesn’t just flirt with top 40 EDM but checks it into a cheap motel for a quickie. The affair is brisk and forgettable.”

Parking Lot Party, Lee Brice

 Parking Lot Party, Lee Brice

Bearable enough to be a party song after 1.5 drinks, but not good enough to have a permanent spot on the radio. Unless you’re actually partying in a parking lot, give this one a skip.

Write My Number On Your Hand, Scotty McCreery

Write My Number On Your Hand, Scotty McCreery

Scotty McCreery’s classic deep country vocals save this song from the top of this list, but we can’t get over how weirdly pushy the lyrics are. Wouldn’t you rather get someone’s number organically than from begging?

Your Man, Josh Turner

Your Man, Josh Turner

Baby, lock them doors and turn off this song we’re over it! Nothing’s inherently wrong with the lyrics or Josh Turner’s luxuriously deep voice, but the trend had its moment and it’s time to move on.
