  • QueenKalie changed the title to Best Country Songs Of The Year Mini Rankdown. (2021)

I likely won't join (unless I see that I am familiar with a good number of songs), but I'll be lurking and watching from the sidelines. And rooting for my favorites from there too. :giggle: 


Also well done to you @QueenKalie on starting your first rankdown, which I am still far too intimated to attempt to do. :haha:

1:01:00 for Deana Carter's  Strawberry Wine

1:09:00 for the start of Kelsea's performances
1:25:00 Kelsea talks about working on her next album. Plays a song I am guessing is called "What I Have" that she has never played before but it is a contender to be on the new album.
