It’s all we’ve got for now. We can’t sing-a-long to our favorite country stars in concert. But we can in our cars, to the hits playing on the radio. Whether or not your passengers appreciate it is another story.

So, what makes a great country sing-a-long song? To start, it’s good to know the words (or most of them). That means it’s likely a throw-back or one that’s really hot right now. It’s got to have a catchy hook. and some good harmonies so you can practice your craft. It can’t be too long, because that just means more words to know.

The following is a list of songs picked based on the most requested, the most heard at concert sing-a-longs, and personal experience.

  1. FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES, Garth Brooks– who doesn’t know this one? Even non-country fans know it. It’s been around for every and is too often a karaoke choice

3. CHICKEN FRIED, Zac Brown Band– Probably best sung with accompaniment, because it’s just that kind of song. One of those songs                  that from day 1, you just clued into the lyrics.
