Funny Country Songs Part 2
40) I Brake For Brunettes – Rhett Akins
Rhett Akins had a huge hit in ’95 with That Ain’t My Truck, but the song that came right before that was the top 40 hit I Brake For Brunettes. The song is a funny little track about a guy that gets off on seeing brunettes. All guys have their favorite type of gal and for some that means the brunettes. Rhett had a thing for trucks back in the ’90s and he was hitting the brakes when it came to beautiful dark haired women. Since that first funny song Rhett found bigger success with following singles and today he’s a well respected songwriter.
39) Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy) – Rodney Atkins
Rodney Atkins had been floating around Nashville for quite a few years before hitting it big in 2006. Rodney had a roll of 4 straight #1 hits on the country charts including the funny song Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy). The song sees the narrator getting ready for his daughter to head out on a date for the first time with a wanting boy. To prepare the narrator sets out his guns on the table and begins polishing them up just as the boy comes over to pick up the daughter. It’s a funny yet serious song about protective fathers. You can’t help but laugh along…unless of course it actually happened to you.
38) I Pray For You – Jaron and the Long Road to Love
Jaron Lowenstein had an unlikely country hit in 2010 with I Pray For You. The song is actually a bit on the mean side. The narrator wishes harm on his ex including a few vicious outcomes. But the song is meant to be funny and it definitely struck a chord with country fans. The song peaked at #13 on the country charts and Jaron’s album went on to debut at #2 on the country album charts. Jaron found a country audience wanting for a funny song to take the edge off. I Pray For You kicked things off for Jaron in the country world and his career is just heating up.
37) All My Friends Say – Luke Bryan
In 2007, a fresh faced country boy from Georgia emerged on the scene with a fun song about drinking the night away. Luke Bryan told the story of a guy drinking his sorrows away one night. Things get a little crazy when his ex shows up and he drinks a bit too much. Luke wakes up in the morning only to hear from his friends that he was doing some crazy things and it all started when the ex walked in. Sometimes we get a little off the wagon and things get crazy, but as long as no one gets hurts it’s worth a little laugh the next day. Luke Bryan has gone on to have some mega hits on the charts but fans will always remember the song that got it all started.
36) I Don’t Know What She Said – Blaine Larsen
Blaine Larsen’s career started in 2005 with the dead serious song How Do You Get That Lonely. A year later though the singer kicked off his sophomore album with the funny song I Don’t Know What She Said. The song has Blaine telling the story of a guy caught up in love at first sight with a woman that speaks Spanish. He sure doesn’t know what she said, but he sure likes the way that she says it. It’s fun to be out with no inhibitions and things can get interesting when a woman talks with a sexy accent. Blaine has had a few more minor hits since and continues to record and tour. He’s still young and there is likely much to hear from the talented country traditionalist.
35) Dang Me – Roger Miller
Roger Miller was one of the original country funny guys. His song Dang Me is a fast little tune about a guy that keeps making the wrong choices. The song was supposedly written in just a few minutes one day when Roger got out of a car. The song went on to become one of the biggest country hits of all time even crossing over onto the pop charts. Dang Me is probably best remembered for Roger’s classic boop boop doop bom. Roger was a one of a kind country artist and probably the only one that successful used the words maple surple in a country song.
34) One Piece At A Time – Johnny Cash
In 1976, Johnny Cash had a bit of a comeback hit with the #1 song One Piece At A Time. The song has Johnny telling the tale of a guy working for the major car companies. The man in the song decides one day that he really wants one of the nice cars he keeps putting together. He realizes that he can’t simply take one off the line for himself. The guy decides to take one piece at a time until he has his entire dream car. It takes year and years and when the guy and his buddy finally get the car together they realize they have a mish mash of a car that looks ridiculous. Nonetheless the guy proudly drives it down to get a title. It was a funny moment from one of country’s greatest artists – Johnny Cash.
33) Mr. Mom – Lonestar
The guys in Lonestar were one of the most successful acts in country music for a ten year or so period from 1995 to 2005. The final hit from the big four in the group was the tune Mr. Mom. The song is about a guy that gets laid off from his job and decides to stay home and take care of the kids while his wife heads out to earn the bacon. What could be so tough about taking care of the kids at home? The guy learns all too soon that being Mr. Mom is no walk in the kitchen. It’s a song that will make you laugh especially if you have kids.
32) Big ‘Ol Truck – Toby Keith
Usually it’s the country boys that have the big 4-wheel drive trucks, but in Toby Keith‘s 1995 hit Big ‘Ol Truck it was a lady that had the big truck. Toby told the tale of falling for the gal that was cruising town in the truck. It has to make you laugh thinking of a gal heading around town in a huge truck. Or perhaps it makes you a little jealous. We can’t all have big old trucks, but we can laugh at the story Toby told way back before he became a country superstar.
31) Baby Likes To Rock It – The Tractors
One #11 hit made The Tractors the surprise hit of the 1994 in country music. The guys released their debut song that year and it shot into the hearts of fans. Baby Likes To Rock It and its next line Like A Boogie Woogie Choo Choo Train were the catchiest lyrics of 1994. No matter who you were or where you lived this song found you and got stuck in your head. The lyrics are ridiculous and that’s what makes the song so funny and memorable. The Tractors never found the same success again on the charts, but they’ll forever be remembered for their one huge funny hit on the charts back in 1994
