10 Best Country Songs Of The ’90s
The 1990s are a nostalgic time for a lot of people, especially when thinking about music. Music is one of those things that is constantly changing and adapting, but never goes out of style. Every genre of music has gone through changes over time, and country music is no different! Let’s take a walk down memory lane and check out the 10 best country songs from the ’90s!
10. “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” – Toby Keith
Toby Keith released the single “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” back in 1993 as his debut single and quickly became one of the most-played country songs of the decade. It ended up being the perfect song to launch his career since it reached the No. 1 spot on the US Hot Country Songs chart and the RPM Country Tracks. It also peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 making it a crossover hit.
9. “Is There Life Out There” – Reba McEntire
Much different from Toby Keith, when Reba McEntire released “Is There Life Out There” she’d already been making music for the 16 years prior, but it wasn’t until the ’90s when she reached headliner status with hits like “Fancy,” “Is There Life Out There” and “Why Haven’t I Heard From You.” This single was paired with an incredible video that showcased McEntire’s acting talents and a heartening story that inspired many single mothers to go back to school. It was released in January 1992 on her album For My Broken Heart. It reached the No. 1 spot on the American country singles chart and spent two weeks in the No. 1 spot on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks.
