That moment when you’ve likely had too many adult beverages. You step up on stage, microphone in hand, waiting for the introduction to start. And then you sing the first note, hoping against hope that you hit the first note (and subsequent ones) on-key. And you hope that the crowd is into it. Especially since crowd involvement makes your song all the better. So what are the best country music karaoke songs? We have the top 9 here.
9. “Friends In Low Places”
What is more classic or more crowd-loving than this iconic Garth Brooks hit? Brooks didn’t write the hit. Dewayne Blackwell and Earl Bud Lee did. But his 1990 release of it became one of Brooks most iconic hits of his entire career.
The lead single of his No Fences album, the track was a smash hit for Brooks. First, the song spent four weeks in the number one spot. But beyond that, Brooks took home two major awards. “Friends In Low Places” won Single of the Year at both the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Country Music Association Awards.
The song is a great karaoke song for a few reasons. First, it’s a key that most people can sing (even ladies, save for a few of those low notes). Second, most people know the song. So you’re sure to have huge crowd participation. Seriously, the song is so popular that once Justin Timberlake sang it on stage (and Garth Brooks surprised the crowd to sing with him on that show).
