Country music is everywhere, including on the Broadway stage in the new musical Shucked written by Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally.

To celebrate we dug our leg warmers and cowboy hats out of the office closet and put together a list of the best music from country musicals, country songs from decidedly non-country musicals, and big stage songs performed by country artists.

Jazz hands and Country music? yes please. Here is Holler's playlist of the Best Country Songs from Musicals. Ok from the top! 5, 6, 7, 8!
