With the release of Chris Young’s new song “All Dogs Go To Heaven,” depicting the heartbreak of losing your canine best friend, we got to thinking about what some of the best country music songs were about dogs, and we found some good ones.
Admittedly we were surprised Miranda Lambert didn’t have a dog song as she, along with her MuttNation foundation, does so very much for our canine friends. Miranda does have a song from 2020 called “How Dare You Love,” along with a lyric video that features pictures of dogs. She also performed on the ACM Awards with Chris Stapleton in 2021 for his song about his dog, “Maggie’s Song.” We did, however, find gems from Carrie Underwood, Stapleton, and more than one from Blake Shelton.
Here are our top five picks for country songs about dogs.
