Kyle’s Top 10 WORST Country Singles of 2017

Country songs fall all over the quality spectrum, but only a chosen few can earn the dubious distinction of sitting at the bottom of the barrel. Through a special combination of poor production, subpar songwriting, and vacuous vocals, the songs presented below are the sorts of headache-inducing tracks that move listeners to plug their ears, turn their dials, or just run screaming from the room.

Just as with my mid-year list, these songs will be presented without comment because a) I’m lazy, and b) I’ve wasted enough words on this junk already in my prior reviews. Without further ado, I give you my least favorite country singles of 2017!

Dishonorable Mentions:

Artist, Song Final Rating
#15 Lindsey Ell, “Waitin’ On You” 4/10
#14 Lady Antebellum, “You Look Good” 4/10
#13 Morgan Wallen ft. Florida Georgia Line, “Up Down” 4/10
#12 Jason Aldean, “They Don’t Know” 4/10
#11 Adam Craig, “Just A Phase” 4/10

#10: Jake Owen, “Good Company” (final rating: 4/10)

#9: Kip Moore, “Last Shot” (3/10)

#8: Florida Georgia Line, “Smooth” (3/10)

#7: Shania Twain, “Life’s About To Get Good” (3/10)

#6: Josh Turner, “All About You” (3/10)

#5: Reba McEntire, “Back To God” (3/10)

#4: Dustin Lynch, “I’d Be Jealous Too” (3/10)

#3: Walker Hayes, “You Broke Up With Me” (3/10)

#2: Dustin Lynch, “Small Town Boy” (2/10)

Okay, I’ll make one remark here: Lynch may not earn my “worst song of the year” award, but landing two singles in my bottom five deserves its own special mark of shame.

#1: Jordan Davis, “Singles You Up” (2/10)

Congratulations Mr. Davis, you’re the inaugural winner of my “worst song of the year” award. On behalf of country listeners around the globe, I humbly ask you (and everyone else on this list) to make better single choices in the future. I don’t want to see any of you people on this list again next year.
