Weekdays On The Job 10:00am-3:00pm

The 90’s without question was the biggest decade for Country Music.  Here is your Memorial Day weekend 90’s country playlist.  So many great songs from so many great artists.  So while you are looking to get ready for the beach, the lake, the pool, or just wanna hear some great music this weekend, I’m going to count down the biggest songs you need on your playlist this weekend.

The Country Music of The 90s changed the music scene forever.  Guys like Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, and Toby Keith popped onto the scene with music like we’ve never heard in country music.  We were line dancing to Brooks and Dunn and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Artists Like Tracy Byrd, Hal Ketchum, and Mary Chapin Carpenter may not have been household names, but they put out some of the biggest songs ever.
