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.
“Backwoods,” the third single from Moore’s eponymous debut album, became his second Top 10 hit, and it’s not hard to see why. Any country music lover with a penchant for the backwoods will relate wholeheartedly to this song: “Rifle in a gun rack hanging in the back glass / Buck knife on my belt, ain’t no land for sale ’round here,” sings Moore. The song took 20 minutes to pen — and with an uptempo beat, it can get any hunter fired up for another day (or night) out in the backwoods.
