While many other blogs have already crowned their favorite song of the year, here I am just now announcing the candidates. I guess you can blame it on time, but no, I have not forgotten about this prestigious award. Admittedly, I'm more of an album guy, however this year is truly a great year to write about songs. Heck, trimming down my album of the year candidates was admittedly fairly easy, however when it came time to decide what my favorite songs were, I started with a huge list that I just had to keep trimming down. If anything, it's been an exceptional year for music, and the proof lies within the candidates that I present to you for Country Music Minds' first ever “Song Of The Year” award.
Please note, only songs that were released in 2016 are eligible to qualify here. If it was released as a single this year but came last year, it's not here. Sorry folks, that's just how I operate. The song HAS to come from this year whether as an album cut, a standalone release or some other way. Get it? Got it? Good.
