Hold on to your cowboy hats, because it’s about to get very meta in here.

Like Kramer’s coffee table book about coffee tables in Seinfeld, there’s nothing country music songwriters like to write about more than country music itself. As a genre, it’s always been self-aware, self-examining and self-referential, and its history is filled with country songs about other country songs and singers singing about singing.

Whether it’s Waylon Jennings wondering if Hank Williams had ever done it this way or Maddie & Tae turning the tables on the sexist depictions of women in bro-country, through the years there have been more country songs sung about country music than anything else.

We’ve collected together 100 of the best in our Holler playlist of Country Songs About Country Music.
