The songs that get played on country music go in random cycles. So when a funny anomaly — like what is currently happening with Dylan Scott and Tim McGraw — happens, it's truly appreciated.

Dylan stopped by Taste of Country Nights to hang with me the other day, and something I have been dying to know is, does he know that there are two songs on the radio right now (his "New Truck" and Tim McGraw "7500 OBO") that are about the exact same thing? The subject of their songs is about how you need to get rid of a truck because of the bad memories it has with an ex of yours. We talk about it at the 7:45 mark of our interview:

Dylan's answer didn't let me down. He said that he does realize that and has commented on a Tim McGraw social media post saying, "You have a truck you're trying to get rid of, and I need a new truck, I'll give you $6,000."

I had to know if Tim McGraw had responded yet — you can hear Dylan's answer when you listen to Taste of Country Nights, On Demand Episode 48 with Dylan Scott.

We also got into detail about a business that Dylan Scott started during the pandemic. It's a local trash service that he started with a friend, and he has been surprised how fast and how much it has picked up since launching it. He talks about how that has been, running a business, doing music and touring all over the world at the same time.

Dylan is a true country music star whose light is shining very bright already, but it will continue to get brighter and brighter in the years to come. This guy is the real deal.

Top 10 Country Songs of 2022 So Far, Ranked

There are plenty of feel-good country jams on this list of the top country songs of 2022, but the No. 1 song is a gut punch. These 10 songs are ranked by critical acclaim, radio and sales success, and importance to the genre.

Five of the 10 artists made our Top Country Songs list from 2021 as well, but there are no repeats. If a song made a previous list or didn't spend most of its time on the charts in 2022, it's not eligible. So, before you ask where your favorite song is, be sure the miss isn't just a technicality.
