20 Funny Country Classics

Published on

Country music has long been the preserve of songwriters who have a nifty way with words. It’s not all big hats, horses, pick up trucks and gorgeous gals. Country music speaks of life, loving and the everyday dreams of housewives and those that prefer America’s backroads to the interstate. Country songs can also be full of fun and humour as well as a little bit of crankiness too. We’ve gathered together some of the crankiest lyrics of all time to make you smile…we hope. We’ve also put them all in our Funny Country Classics playlist.

    Have you ever listened to that Johnny Paycheck song? I wouldn’t say it’s funny, it’s very morbid and dark, good song, but it’s about a man who’s going to kill his lover, the man she’s with, and himself, it’s a great story, but not a funny story.
