90s Country

Episode 180

For their 180th Episode, Aaron and Brent spotlight songs from a renaissance period in country music when artists like Shania Twain and Garth Brooks started crossing over into the mainstream.

In the 1990s, hits like “Achy Breaky Heart” and “How Do I Live” helped bridge the gap between the genre’s traditional roots and the new pop-friendly sound.

For Episode 180, the guys each highlight three standout tracks from country music in the 1990s including music from Blackhawk, Travis Tritt, Collin Raye, and more.
