Our BRAND NEW “’80s Country Gold” Playlist Is Throwback Perfection

George Strait

Got a hot new playlist for y’all here.

Our Saved by ’90s Country playlist is one of the greatest playlists of all time, but what about the decade before it?

There was SO much good music from the ’80s.

You had artists like George Strait, Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard absolutely dominating the charts, and breakout superstars like Reba, Keith Whitley and Clint Black bursting onto the scene.

And along the way there was a ton of great stuff from names like Alabama, Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams, Jr…and, oh yeah, some guy named George Jones.

There was just so much heat from the ’80s that we thought the decade deserved its own playlist.

So we made one.

Our ‘80s Country Gold playlist is over 9 hours of just that… ’80s country gold. We’ve got all your favorites, some hidden gems, and some songs that you didn’t even remember were your favorites.

So crank it up, and make sure you follow Whiskey Riff on Spotify and Apple Music.

Because as you know by now, our playlists are the best on Earth.

Listen here on Spotify.

And Apple Music.

And of course check out our REVAMPED Saved by 90’s Country to take you right on through the next decade too.
