The top ten funny country songs of all time…
Funny Country Songs Part 5
10) Some Beach – Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton is well known for his sense of humor. It took a few albums, but Shelton’s humor finally came out with the single Some Beach from his third album Blake Shelton’s Barn and Grill. The song was written by country legend Paul Overstreet and fellow country artist Rory Lee Feek. Some Beach is a play on words. Shelton plays the narrator telling the story of his day. He keeps running into situations that would make any person frustrated. Rather than busting out with a curse word Blake quickly shifts his focus to some beach somewhere far away and he’s able to bring a smile to his face. It’s easy to laugh while listening to this song and it can help brighten any day.
9) Alcohol – Brad Paisley
Brad Paisley makes the list once again with his 2005 hit Alcohol. The song pokes a little fun at nature’s funny juice. I remember seeing Brad in concert just a couple months after this song peaked. The concert was in Wisconsin and the song was a big hit as Brad acknowledged that Wisconsin is well known for its beer and beer drinkers. Alcohol is responsible for taking over more than a few decision in life. Consumption of alcohol can lead to a few poor decision, but things can also get fun. Brad takes the fun view with alcohol and the result is a classic funny country song.
8) Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off – Joe Nichols
In 2005, Joe Nichols released the funny country tune Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off. The song is another tune about the effects alcohol can have on people. In this particular song we see Nichols telling the story of a gal that can’t help but to lose her various garments during a night of consuming a little too much tequila. The real fun part of the song is the melody. Everybody from adults to kids sing along with this song on the radio. It’s one of those that gets caught in your head and won’t leave. The story makes the song funny and Joe put the perfect country twist on the tale.
7) Honky Tonk Badonkadonk – Trace Adkins
It’s one of his biggest singles to date. Honky Tonk Badonkadonk has to be the most unlikely hit song in the history of country music. Trace Adkins recorded the song and it was released as a single in 2005. The tune is an ode to the backside of country gals. Badonkadonk was co-written by Jamey Johnson who wrote many hits for other artists before finding success on his own. Badonkadonk is absolutely ridiculous and that’s what makes it so funny. The song is incredibly catchy that you can’t help but find yourself laughing when it comes on the radio. Even Jamey Johnson said that he was bursting out in laughter as he helped pen the tune.
6) You Ain’t Much Fun – Toby Keith
Toby Keith had a #2 country hit back in 1995 with the fun song You Ain’t Much Fun. The song is a story of a guy that quits drinking and afterward finds out that things aren’t as much fun anymore. His gal has him doing a bunch of chores and she really isn’t too cheery now that he has quit the bottle. He’s feeding the dog, mending the fence and doing other stuff that just isn’t really enjoyable. It’s all in fun of course but perhaps there is a little truth to the fact that some things and some people really aren’t much fun when there isn’t alcohol involved.
5) Big Green Tractor – Jason Aldean
The success of the song Big Green Tractor seemed to surprise everyone involved. Even Jason Aldean seemed surprised by the way fans took to the fun romantic country song about having a little date out on the tractor on the farm. The song was co-penned by country great David Lee Murphy. He thought of the ridiculous concept one day when he was…on his John Deere on his property. The song is ultra catchy and it caught on in a big way in 2009 during its run to the top. Fans still love singing along with the funny story of having a great time with someone out on the farm.
4) I’m Gonna Miss Her – Brad Paisley
We’re at #4 on the list and we’ve finally reached the funniest song from country’s current funnyman Brad Paisley. I’m Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin’ Song) was written by Brad long before he even had a record deal but he waited until his second album to record and release it as a single. He wasn’t sure country fans were ready for a tongue-in-cheek song about a guy that loves fishing more than his wife. The song became a smash hit #1 records and Brad has never looked back from his funny ways.
3) Queen of My Double Wide Trailer – Sammy Kershaw
The prince of funny country in the ’90s was Sammy Kershaw. The Dennis Linde penned song Queen of My Double Wide Trailer is as ridiculous as the title suggests. Sammy recorded the song for his second album and the song shot up the charts and into the top ten in 1993. The tune is a story about a guy trying to continue to win the heart of his very own country queen. Linde managed to write about familiar country themes without stepping too much into a single cliche. Sammy added his classic country twang and the rest is history and one of the funniest country songs of all time.
2) Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On – Neal McCoy
It had been eight years since Neal McCoy had been in the country top ten. In 2005, the former entertainer of the year released his comeback song Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On. The song was about a fellow named Billy that heads out to have a good time at the bar. He makes sure to drink enough to get those troublesome beer goggles on and finds himself with a few interesting ladies. We all know that it’s happened to us and the result is usually a hilarious story. The song remains a favorite for those heading out to look for a good time and there are always laughs that follow when Billy gets his beer goggles on.
1) I Got Friends In Low Places – Garth Brooks
We had to put Garth Brooks as #1 on this list. Friends In Low Places is the ultimate kiss my ass country song. When you’ve been left for someone else there is no better feeling the world than knowing you’re better off without them. And it also helps to rub it in their face a little bit. Garth added his attitude and sense of humor to Friends and the song became hilarious and an instant hit upon its release. Anytime you walk into a bar anywhere across the country and Friends comes on the jukebox you’ll hear men and women in the place take a step back and sing along to every word. The song relates to so many and it always brings a smile to the face of country fans. That is why it’s the number one funny country song.
