I mean this is a cliche answer but it's gotta be either "El Paso" or "Big Iron", both by Marty Robbins. Or "Red Headed Stranger" or "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain", both by Willie Nelson

I actually really enjoy listening to country songs bc they are a lot of fun to laugh at. Also I live in rural america and used to work on a farm so a lot of teh songs are nostalgic bc country songs where the ones allways on the equipments radio.

The funniest by far is "international harvester" also super relatable bc I loved driving heavy loads on country roads and blocking cars from passing me to piss them off.

Other funny but also misogynistic so less funny is "thats my kinda night" and "when it rains it pours". When I was in high school it was fun to watch with my two close friends and cringe watch the videos.

thats true. Tho its much less to due with country music and almost all to do with rural populations going from leftist majority to christian conservative majority. Which is a pretty complicated issue that I don't understand.

Country made it over here in the most parody-like ways. Austrian midlife crowd playing cowboy every once in a while, as an excuse to drink, wear brown leather jackets and hide the hair loss with a hat. Hard to ignore such images and association, but maybe that's what it's like in other places too anyway. I like some Johnny Cash. And I wish I could play piano in that honky-tonk style, seems fun. Not enough to have faves though.

If the Phone Don't Ring, You'll Know It's Me (Rusty Ford) or maybe I Don't Know Whether To Kill Myself or Go Bowling or maybe I'm So Miserable Without You; It's Like Having You Here. Oh wait I thought it was favorite funny country song title. Johnny Cash Ring of Fire.

OK So the only country songs I could think of are cotton eyed joe, timber, and old town road...

does horse with no name count as country? In any case that one's probably my favorite, as it's the closest thing to country I've really ever been exposed to (except for those three previously cited EDM tracks) .

Horse With No Name is folk rock, or folk pop by 70s standards. I suppose the guitar parts are country enough but you don't really get vocal harmonies like that in "real" country. Great song nonetheless, and I can definitely also reccommend the rest of the album (America, self-titled, from 1971). All the songs on the A-side are top notch.

Chattahoochee - because it's fun and makes me think about spending time outside with friends doing nothing but just being together.

Also, Hank Williams classic shit because that vocal reverb he did was badass.

Popular country is 100% rich city folk larping as rednecks. Tho in the case of international harvester I dont know or care bc that one was actually respectful whole most feel condesending. The only one I. Confident in saying that about is Earl dibbled Jr bc that's obvious like music not based on personal experience.
