The best country songs are the ones not played.

Some country is good.

I have "In a Real Love" by Phil Vassar as one of my ringtones.  ;D

I really like "All My Ex's Live in Texas" or "Thank God I"m a Country Boy" but I'm not much of a country music fan myself

I like "The Fireman" from George Strait... ;D

Yeah, they call me the fireman, that's my name.
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames.
Well everybody'd like to have what I got,
I can cool 'em down when their smolderin' hot.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

Last night we had a bad one a mile or two down the road,
Yeah my buddy walked out and left his woman burnin' outta control.
Well, I was down their in 'bout an hour or so,
With a little mouth to mouth she was ready to go.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

They call me the fireman, that's my name.
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames.
Well, everybody'd like to have what I got,
I can cool 'em down when their smolderin' hot.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

--- Instrumental ---

I got a fire engine red, T-Bird automobile,
In a minute or less I can be dressed fit to kill.
I work twenty four on and twenty four off,
If they get too hot they just give me a call.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

They call me the fireman, that's my name.
Makin' my rounds all over town puttin' out old flames.
Well, everybody'd like to have what I got,
I can cool 'em down when their smolderin' hot.
I'm the Fireman, that's my name.

They call me the fireman, that's my name...


This seems to be the theme song of every firefighter with whom I work.   ;)

I like country-tinged songs, like by The Band or Tom Waits for instance, but I generally don't like "straight country."

What about "Stand by Your Man?"

In my iTunes.  Not one of my all-time favorites (not a huge Tammy Wynette fan), but can really hit the spot when I'm feeling the need to sing loudly with emotion while driving.
