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.

#8 Grandaddy’s Gun
Blake Shelton

A double-barrel 12-gauge sits above the mantle on a couple of rusty nails, and though it’s worth a lot of money, Shelton sure isn’t going to give it up — because it’s grandaddy’s gun. The last track on Shelton’s Based on a True Story … album is one of the record’s highlights. “Grandaddy’s Gun” is one of Shelton’s more personal and introspective songs; it showcases nostalgia in the form of a gun, and someday, Shelton sings, he’ll give it to his son.
