Ten Best Songs of 2017: Another Perspective



The Best Songs of 2017 

By Kevin Broughton

Trailer’s list was okay, but just. It demands a response, so here are the ten best songs of 2017.

Good talk.

Come for the 1½-minute intro of standup bass, brushes & organ. 
Stay for the good-time rock, sassy-ass blues & rockabilly.


Sure, “White House Road” gets all the hype. For straight-up poignance, though, give me this as the best cut on the smash debut album Purgatory. Well, this one or “Lady May.”


The opening track on what I voted the No. 1 album of the year. The richness of this full-grown folk singer’s baritone speaks for itself and nearly defies substantive description. It simply is. PS, he’s 22 years old. I think we’re done here.


The best voice in all of country music.


On an album full of gems from some of the best musicians in Texas, here’s a real treat: an acoustic version of “Superstition,” featuring virtuoso pianist Daniel Creamer on vocals. It’s sublime.


Two years ago these guys had our album of the year, and Trailer in his autocratic grace declared, rightly, “The Bird Hunters” our top song. Which makes it so shocking he would put “Pay No Rent” (respectfully, maybe the third-best cut on FTM’s #2 Album of the Year) so high, to the exclusion of the clearly superior “The House Fire.” A disturbing lapse in judgment at best; one hopes there’s not a deeper character flaw in play.

“I heard the judge ask the jury, ‘which one’s the one to go?’ Then I heard them say my name, and why I’ll never know.” A song of guilt, forgiveness and redemption, from the point of view of the criminal pardoned while the Savior bought ours.  

Carve out some of that kindling. There’s plenty of wood around.

Pure, country authenticity. It tastes like honey.

“We could steal some Keystone Beer from an A-rab liquor store.”

I Saw Dwight Last Night

I saw Dwight Yoakam (for the first time) with The Steel Woods last night. It was fantastic. I'm too lazy to write a proper review, but trust me when I say he's every bit the performer you imagine - a legend still in prime shape vocally and as a performer. The Steel Woods were great too - playing 6-7 songs from their (top 10 of '17 for me) album Straw in the Wind and a cover of "Yesterday's Wine." Dwight was in a good mood for his set - pulling out a few songs he rarely plays these days (according to set lists I've seen) and a ton of covers. Our Governor, Phil Bryant, visited Dwight before the show and made a song request that surprised Yoakam, but he played it. "Buenos Noches From a Lonely Room," a spare and cold murder ballad, isn't what you'd expect a state head honcho to be into, but I'm glad he is. Anyway, here's the set list from the show.

Point Break Country Reaction Gifs

 If Warchild won't shut up about
the new Dustin Lynch album

When the flight you're on shows CMT
instead of an in-flight movie

When you and a friend get into
Jason Isbell at the same time

Can you believe Chris Stapleton has
sold nearly 3 million albums?

What would it be like to go to
a LOCASH concert?

How do you feel about The Steel Woods?

Would you break up with a girl
who was a huge Sam Hunt fan?

Would you rather learn Spanish from scratch
or go to a Florida-Georgia Line concert?
