Two newcomers that few country fans had heard of a year ago top the October 2017 list of great country songs. Also find hits from stars like Blake Shelton and Garth Brooks ranked high, but it's rookies like Luke Combs and Kane Brown leading the way.

Lanco, Carly Pearce and Dustin Lynch are inside the Top 10, as well. New songs from stars like Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Kenny Chesney do well — this month's list of the best songs in country music includes several lead singles from upcoming albums. Granger Smith, Chris Young and Pearce drop new projects in October. A November release from Shelton will include the highest debut.
