16 Underrated songs... what does that mean? Well it means these songs may have gotten SOME airplay on radio, but not much for whatever reason!


Best Shot by Jimmie Allen

I first heard of this song, and artist, a couple weeks ago on Sirius XM The Highway and man he blew me away! Not very often we see black country artists hit mainstream, but he's getting some airplay on Sirius XM. Hopefully this guy keeps coming out with songs like this!


Drunk Me by Mitchell Tenpenny

This guy broke onto the country scene with a song called Bitches... but I definitely prefer this song over that. It's kind of a break up song, saying that that when he's been sober since she broke her heart. This song is actually real to his life, he said this song is about his ex girlfriend... and if that not only makes this song personal, but powerful, I don't know what is!


Man Enough Now by Chris Bandi

Man this song really hits you in the heart, talking about how she fell in love with the kid he was and he grew up and she took off. Wow, such a powerful lyric and an amazing voice!


Tailgate by RaeLynn

RaeLynn found her way to fame through The Voice, she's had a few big hits (Love Triangle and God Made Girls), this song is getting SOME airplay, but Carrie Underwood is getting more plays. It's more of the pop country that's popular now on radio, but maybe this is what RaeLynn needed! It's an awesome song, and if Tailgates could ever talk RaeLynn would be rich because of this song!


David Ashley Parker from Powder Springs by Travis Denning

A song about getting a fake ID that's actually a really great? Catchy lyric, fun message and a cameo by the real David Ashley Parker in the music video make for a great song if you ask me!


Granddaddy's Gun by Aaron Lewis

Yes THAT Aaron Lewis, the lead singer of Stain'd. He's successfully crossed over to country, and he's the original singer of this song, within the same year however, Blake Shelton covered this song and put it on his album, Based on a True Story..., and that version arguably had a better reception for whatever reason. Beautiful song with a beautiful message


Stuck on Me & You by Emily Ann Roberts

This song just got sent to radio, but with how country radio is, I'm putting her here on this list because she will get outplayed by Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, while I do enjoy both of those ladies, I just wish more women would get radio play!


Got Your Name On It by Jade Eagleson

Don't let the majority of the music video fool you, the little kid isn't him. I've never heard of this guy, this song just popped into my suggestions when I was actually doing this little project, so I had to put it on here. It's a great song with a really beautiful message, and a great video.


When a Momma's Boy Meets a Daddy's Girl by Aaron Pritchett

I first heard this song shortly after it dropped in 2016, fell in love with it, unfortunately I haven't come across any other songs by Aaron Pritchett. The song is absolutely amazing, the video is breaking barriers on it's own for country music, which explains why it was never featured on CMT or GAC.


Quarterback by Kira Isabella

In Kira's own words this song is about "trust being broken - and how in today's world social media can amplify that pain immensely." The song has 2 different endings, the one linked above is the alternate ending, here is the true ending both endings are extremely powerful, the song is just... wow!


Make Him Wait by Abby Anderson

This song only came out last month and this song is already, in my opinion, one of the best songs of the year! Talking about making a man wait on you, not rush into things, especially if you love them. Wow, just beautiful!


Chevy and Daddy by AJ Sanders

A song about a boy and his dad, working on dad's truck. Typical country song, but MAN! Powerful, powerful lyric!


Criminal by Lindsay Ell

That opening guitar strum sold me before the first time I listened to this song, then I heard her voice... just WOW! Now she's gotten more airplay than the other women on this list, but not by much. She's so talented, it's crazy!


I Thought I Knew It All by Electra Mustaine

I was looking for an official version of her song Life is Good, but I couldn't so I'll settle for this country cover of Megadeth's I Thought I Knew It All... after all, she is the daughter of Dave Mustaine, so I thought it was only fitting. She's definitely talented like her dad, hopefully she gets more recognition over the next few years!


Midnight Daydream by Jameson Rodgers

Why isn't there an official music video for this song? My god, this song has been on repeat since I downloaded it a year ago. Absolutely amazing song by a guy with a surprising voice!


Good Ol' Boys Like Us by JJ Lawhorn

A song about reflecting on one of his friends, we've all been there and MAN this guy can sing and needs more airplay, I don't recall any of his songs, except maybe his duet with Colt Ford, hitting radio and I feel like this should've been the song to get him some airplay!
