The song marked the legitimate success of the country band that sounded different from anything else on radio.

48) A Matter Of Time – Jason Sellers
Most of you may not recognize this track but it made it into the 30s on the charts back in 1999 and 2000. A Matter Of Time was as single released by the ultra talented singer and songwriter Jason Sellers. The track is about falling in love and it’s super catchy and fun to sing along with. While you may not recognize Jason as a singer you’ll surely recognize some of the songs he’s written: Some People Change, I Still Miss You, You Can’t Hide Beautiful, and more. Sometimes great songs get hidden back on the edge of the charts even if they deserve recognition. That’s why A Matter Of Time is found here.

Montgomery Gentry has had some big country hits. They’re two good ‘ol boys born and raised with country in their veins. These guys are the real deal. They like drinking liquor, hunting, and partying.

The song is about the guys’ hometowns, but the lyrics keep things vague enough that everybody listening to the track can take ownership of their own hometowns. Country fans are proud of where they come from and they support their hometown colors every chance they get. Songs like My Town make you proud to sing out and cheer for the hometown team while remembering those good times.

Brooks & Dunn burst out onto the scene in 1991 and from their first single they made it clear to the country world that they were on a mission to change the direction of country music. The song was Brand New Man and from the opening lyrics you could tell that these guys meant business. The song kicks into high gear with the guys belting out the notes to a tune about turning over a new leaf for the love of a woman. The guys went on to have one of the biggest careers in country music history. Brand New Man remains one of their most played and requested song.
45) Nothin’ To Lose – Josh Gracin
Josh Gracin came from the talent-laced show American Idol, but he proved everybody that there was mass appeal for country singers.

The second track from the set was Nothin’ To Lose and it was a rocking 2 minute track that left listeners needing to take a breath. The song moves through the lyrics with a nonstop approach and boy are they fun to sing along with. The tune is about letting go of your worries and taking the plunge.

Ken Mellons is one of those one hit wonders that pops up every once and a while in country. His big hit was the 1994’s Jukebox Junkie.
