This list of top songs from country music's top artists drills down to the best from legends like Alan Jackson and Tim McGraw, to relative newcomers like Lainey Wilson.

There's just one song per artist, and we'll stand by our picks for perennial hitmakers like Kenny Chesney and Blake Shelton. Eric Church fans probably won't agree (when do they?) but we'll stand by that, too.

The choice for Jelly Roll was simple. Picking Cody Johnson's No. 1 song was trickier because the Texan has so many great album cuts.

Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert, both Lukes and Toby Keith are also featured on this list of country music's best. There's a heavy focus on modern hitmakers, but a few GOATS like Reba McEntire also pop up. She's not had a radio hit since 2010, but few days pass without her No. 1 song on any given radio station.

This list was curated by weighing each artist's biggest commercial hit against the strength of songwriting of others from his or her catalog. Sales and airplay numbers were considered, but more important was the impact. That becomes obvious when you see which song was chosen as Garth Brooks' top song.
