Let “King of Kings” by Elijah Prophet guide your body. Last week, we published our picks for the top break-up anthems of all time.The tomatoes of our salad are the females.” Some heavier in honky-tonk, some filled with heartache, here is a list of songs that showcase country music’s Caprese salad of the ‘90s. Deana Carter, “Did I Shave My Legs For This” In 1996, Deana Carter wrote an anthem so many women can appreciate—a song that comically details the disappointment that comes with competing for affection in a me-first marriage, which highlights a laborious task any woman can relate to, whether married or single.An understated songwriter, Carter penned Kenny Chesney’s “You and Tequila” featuring Grace Potter back in 2011, when it was nominated for song of the year at both the CMAs and a Grammy.Dolly Parton - Coat of Many Colors A sentimental song about a mother's love for her daughter, the lyrics tell the true story of when Dolly's mum sewed her a coat made of scraps of fabric.Samuel Timothy "Tim" Mc Graw (born May 1, 1967) is an American singer, songwriter and actor.
While the airways have always been saturated with machismo, the women of the ‘90s country class recorded countless mantras that proved not all damsels are in distress.
Johnny Cash - Hurt Cash was 71 when he recorded this cover of the Nine Inch Nails' 1995 song in 2003, and his trademark gravelly voice delivers lyrics about pain and depression in such a way that you'll be reaching for the tissues by the end of the first chorus.
The accompanying video, featuring a morose-looking Cash interspersed with images of a flood-stricken House of Cash museum (no longer open) and the singer when he was younger, packs an extra emotional punch.
Nelson's haunting version of this traditional folk song, about the tragic loss of a friend, was used in the 2005 film Brokeback Mountain, helping it win Best Original Score at the 78th Academy Awards.
George Jones - He Stopped Loving Her Today Jones originally refused to record this song on the basis that it was too miserable; according to the biography George Jones: The Life and Times of a Honky Tonk Legend, "he thought it was too long, too sad, too depressing and that nobody would ever play it." Luckily for us, Jones changed his mind, and the song went on to win him a Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1980.
