The next generation of country stars hold down many of the top spots on this list of the Top 40 country songs for September 2013. You'll find a hot country duo and a solo male with one heck of a pedigree. More established stars like Keith Urban and Jason Aldean also fill out two of the Top 10 songs, but neither have their single in the No. 1 spot. 

New to the Top 40 this month are the latest singles from the Band Perry, Jennifer Nettles and Hunter Hayes. Scotty McCreery's song 'See You Tonight' re-enters at No. 35, and fellow reality stars like Cassadee Pope and Miranda Lambert (once upon a time) make the cut, as well. Luke Bryan makes the biggest leap, as his new single 'That's My Kind of Night' debuts inside the Top 5 after two amazing weeks of sales.

The list of the Top 40 Country Songs for September 2013 is compiled from Billboard chart data and sales figures, in addition to staff opinion and reader feedback.
