Playlist of the Week: Top 200 Country Songs of the ’90s

Each week we’re featuring a playlist to get your mind going and help you assemble your favorites. This week we take a deep dive into Country music of the ’90s. The ’90s brought us enduring hits from the likes of Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, and George Strait — and beautiful voices like Trisha Yearwood, Shania Twain, and Faith Hill. It was also the hey day of many groups like Diamond Rio, Alabama, and and Sawyer Brown. In fact, many of the notable Country performers of the ’90s are also notable residents of Williamson County!

Here is a stab at the Top 200 Country Songs of the ’90s — not necessarily in rank order, with a few more added for honorable mention. We welcome your comments. What songs are ranked too high? What songs are ranked too low? What songs are missing? Make your case. Also, please let us know concepts for playlists you’d like to see — or share a favorite list of your own.
