50 Country Songs Everyone Who Grew Up in the ’90s Will Appreciate

There's a certain power that music has that to take you back to a high school dance or summer camp or wherever your memory places a particular song, along with all the lyrics you forgot you even knew. And if you were listening to country music in the '90s, hits by Shania Twain, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Travis Tritt, Martina McBride, and Brooks & Dunn (and so many more!) sure will do just that.

It was quite the big decade for country music too. George Strait, Lee Ann Womack, and Toby Keith kept plenty of traditional tunes coming our way. Later in the '90s, we saw lots of traditional country music-pop cross-over with artists like Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain, and the Dixie Chicks coming on to the scene and bringing a boom in country music popularity with them.

Whether you are listening to the country love songs (that’ll have you crying in your beer), the or a drinking song (that can also leave you crying) you're sure to connect with the story-telling in these songs as they take you back in time to the era of Beanie Babies, Tamagotchis, Friends, and Sex and the City.

So pull out your Walkman or or boom box and hit play on this mixtape of a playlist!
