    • 10. Fast As You by Dwight Yoakam

      This song makes you think.

      Britney Spears is the hottest girl anywhere. She is so sexy. I love her and I think that Baby one more time is one of the best song Britney has ever come out with.
    • 5. The Honky Tonk Truth by Brooks And Dunn
      The Honky tonk truth is the greatest song by Brooks and Dunn, and Brooks and Dunn is the greatest Duo in country music. The video even had Dale Earnhardt in it. And anyone who says that Dale Earnhardt sucked is gay. Dale Earnhardt is the best nascar driver who ever lived. R.I.P.

      Joe Diffie is one of my favorite singers and I've loved 3rd rock from the sun ever since I've heard it.
    • 3. I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys
      I love the backstreet boys. Any man who says that the backstreet boys are gay are just jealous that they aren't getting all the attention, and think that by saying that the Backstreet boys are gay that they can somehow take some of the attention off the BSB. BSB Rules. and they aren't just for girls. BSB are real men. AJ is my favorite because he is so cool.
    • 2. I Swear by John Michael Montgomery
      This song is the ultimate love song of all time. I want this song sang at my wedding. It is so awesome.
    • 1. Friends In Low Places by Garth Brooks
      Friends in low places is such an awesome song. I love to sing it around campfires with a bunch of my friends.This song is so fun to listen to. I love it.
