The year was 2000.
Everybody thought the world was going to end because of a computer bug, George Strait and Alan Jackson accused the country music industry of committing a murder on Music Row, and one of the biggest names in country music, Garth Brooks, announced his retirement from touring.
Country music was riding high on the wave of the ’90s, and they rode it straight into the next decade and just kept on pumping out some great music.
And we’ve got the best of the best right here on our newly-revamped (and super nostalgic) Y2K Country playlist.
We’ve doubled the size of the playlist, bringing you over 300 of the best songs from the first decade of the 2000’s. We added hits from Brad Paisley, Chris Cagle, Jo Dee Messina, Montgomery Gentry, Alan Jackson, and a TON of others.
There are some songs you loved but may have forgotten about, like Jamie O’Neal’s “There Is No Arizona” and David Ball’s classic “Riding With Private Malone.” And then there are the one-hit wonders like Brian McComas with “99.9% Sure (I’ve Never Been Here Before)” and Jessica Andrews’ “Who I Am” (everybody knows she’s Rosemary’s granddaughter).
This is the perfect trip down memory lane to take you back to all the fun of the 2000s this summer – just leave the puka shell necklaces back in 2004 where they belong.
And make sure you’re following Whiskey Riff on Spotify and Apple Music, because we have the best country playlists you’re ever gonna find.
I mean, just look at this Saved By 90’s Country playlist. Hot DAMN.
