Each month, starting with August 2011, Taste of Country will determine the Top 40 Country Songs based on charts, staff reviews and reader input. Some songs make the top of Billboard's charts with nary a radio request, while others barely crack station airplay lists but have fans clamoring to hear them. Here at Taste of Country, we'll consider all of those aspects. It's a power-ranking of sorts for country hitmakers.

Jason Aldean has the No. 1 song on the charts, but is that enough to make it the top tune in this month's Top 40 Country Songs list on Taste of Country? New hits songs from Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Blake Shelton will no doubt be giving Aldean a run for the No. 1 spot. Newcomers Craig Campbell, Thompson Square and Hunter Hayes are also making big gains with their new songs. Take a look to see if your favorite songs made our list, and remember feedback is always welcome.
