We already gave you our 20 Best Country Music Singles of 2016 with some of our picks for the top singles in country music this year, but that’s only a small picture of all that happened in country music this year.
So bring on the deep cuts.
These are the tracks that made the albums of 2016, but didn’t necessarily take the single route to country radio. Sometimes, rather often times, the best songs on an album don’t quite fit the “vibe” of country radio and nobody hears them unless you take the time to listen to the entire album. My advice is that you should be listening to entire albums anyway, but if not, here are 20 of our deep cut favorites from this year.
