What are the Best Country Songs of All Time?

What are the best country songs of all time? We know that tastes are different, and it is very difficult to enumerate greatest country songs. However, we can try to mention some of the songs that stayed with the fans for a long time. If you like country music, here are some of the best country songs of all time.

In the very beginning, we must say something about perhaps the greatest country singer, Johnny Cash. He was probably the most famous and influential singers of the twentieth century. Cash’s songs are not pure country songs; they involve other genres, too, like blues, rock and roll and rockabilly.

Some of the greatest Johnny Cash songs are ‘Ring of Fire’, that was later sung by other famous artists, like “The Animals”; ‘I Walk the Line’, ‘Hurt’ and many others. Cash was also a great author and actor. His songs, especially in the later career, were filled with emotions like redemption, sorrow and loneliness. Cash used to perform in many prisons. He was compassionate about prisoners and that led him to perform for them. The records of prison performances are being sold even today. They are longer than the official album versions and you can hear his conversation towards the prisoners. Cash died in 2003.
