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.
#4 “ Just Fishin’”
Trace Adkins Adkins’ “Just Fishin’” received a Grammy nod for Best Country Song, and it’s not hard to see why. The track is utterly heartwarming: It’s a song about a father fishing with his daughter — and so much more. They’re not “just fishin’,” as his sweet little girl thinks. “And she thinks we’re just fishin’ on the riverside / Throwin’ back what we could fry / Drownin’ worms and killin’ time / Nothin’ too ambitious,” Adkins reveals in the chorus, but they’re actually making memories — big ones and small.
