Top 10 Country Songs About Hunting and Fishing
By Christina Vinson
Hunting and fishing go hand in hand with country music, country boys and country girls.
As anyone who’s hooked a big bass or displays a deer head above their mantle knows, the wait is worth it. But, whether you’re wearing camo and sitting in a rickety tree stand or relaxing out on the water in a rickety fishing boat, you need some good mood music (in your headphones only! Don’t want to scare the animals away …).
Hunting and fishing songs are a dime in a dozen in country music, but there are several that stand out — and we’re in love with the following 10 tunes hook, line and sinker.
#9 “Bad Day of Fishin’”
Currington’s album Enjoy Yourself features one song he co-wrote on, “Bad Day of Fishin’,” and the tune will make you smile even after … well, a bad day of fishing.
“Didnt catch a damn thing / Guess you could say we took a lickin’ / Tonight’s fish fry is gonna taste like chicken,” Currington sings. “But we did just fine, if I do say so myself / You know, a bad day of fishin’ beats a good day of anything else.”
