Best Guilty Pleasure Song? – Readers Poll
There are certain songs that non-country fans just can’t understand. Talk to your city slicker friends about the greatness of ‘Honky Tonk Badonkadonk’ or ‘Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy’ and you’re likely to get pretentious, blank stares in return. Even some country fans may hate on songs like ‘Red Solo Cup’ and ‘Achy Breaky Heart,’ but sales figures reveal that not everyone is being truthful about their distaste… And it’s time to own up. What is your favorite guilty pleasure country song?
Included are 10 songs spanning 30 years of country music, but you may have another that you’re almost (keyword: almost) ashamed to admit you turn up to 11 every time you hear it. ‘Truck Yeah’ by Tim McGraw and ‘I Play Chicken With the Train’ by Cowboy Troy aren’t lyrical works of art, but they capture the passion and energy every country fan craves from a live show.
Many of these choices are hits, and for that reason, one could argue that songs like Trace Adkins‘ 2005 hit don’t belong on a poll about guilty pleasures. We’ll let the results speak for themselves.
