Four new voices shape the Top 5 songs on this month's Top 40. February 2023 is the month for country radio singles meant to power the summer and our chart includes a few of those too.

Cole Swindell's "Drinkaby" stands out as a potentially great summer song, but so too does Tyler Hubbard's "Dancin' in the Country." Both debut on the February 2023 Top 40 Country Songs chart. The month is known for love songs, and country artists are generous in that category, but the party starts now.

Top 5 Country Songs of February 2023:

1. Kane Brown With Katelyn Smith, “Thank God” — Up one spot this month, this song seems likely to hold onto radio airplay for weeks to come. Is an ACM in their future?

3. Lainey Wilson, “Heart Like a Truck” — Lainey Wilson's ballad continues to crow at radio and digital streamers, and on sales charts. There's no sign of burn.

4. Morgan Wallen, “Thought You Should Know” — This future No. 1 might get topped by one of his new songs on the next sales chart. — SALES LEADER!

5. Nate Smith, “Whiskey on You” — Nate Smith's story is one of the best in country music. The former nurse found success the second time around, more than a decade after trying Nashville and flaming out. — RADIO AIRPLAY LEADER!

Top 22 Country Songs of 2022, Ranked

There are plenty of feel-good country jams on this list of the top country songs of 2022, but the No. 1 song is one of the best love songs of the decade. These 22 songs are ranked by critical acclaim, radio and sales success, and importance to the genre.

Seven of the 22 artists made our Top Country Songs list from 2021, as well, but there are no song repeats. If a song made a previous list (or didn't spend most of its time on the charts in 2022), it's not eligible. So, before you ask where your favorite song is (i.e. Cody Johnson, "'Til You Can't"), be sure the miss isn't just a technicality.
