Billy Currington’s love for small-town life is on full display in his new song, "City Don’t."

Scooter Carusoe, Joshua Miller and Chris LaCorte penned "City Don't," and the buoyant summertime track proudly shares why living in a small town beats staying in a city. Whether it’s the sprawling land, laid-back activities, tightly-knit community or no-frills date spots, it’s clear that the country lifestyle trumps everything else.

“City don't let ya walk a field with your fingertips runnin' across the top of waist high hay / It don't have a quarter mile of red lights where everybody waves at your Chevrolet / The city don't grow the kind of girls that rather river bank, drink beer, and dance in the mud / I ain't sayin' that high-rise life is wrong, but right here is what I love,” Currington professes in the opening verse.

“They got five stars, we got millions / They got nice bars, we got sippin' straight out of a can / On somebody's land with a homegrown girl / And a God-made tan singin', "Goodbye Earl" / Got everything I need, everything I could want / 'Cause the country does something for me the city don't,” the Georgia native adds with unwavering certainty in the vivid chorus.

“City Don’t” is Currington’s first new release of 2023. Prior to this, he dropped the romantic "I Still Love With You" with Jessie James Decker and his latest album, Intuition, in 2022 and 2021, respectively.

The Top Country Songs of 2023, Ranked

The best country songs of 2023 fit snug over your life and experiences. Each is written from personal experiences, but somehow, that translates as if it were custom to each of us. We've loved, we've longed, we've lost and we've cut loose in the country.

Airplay charts, sales data and streaming numbers helped make this list of country music's top songs of 2023, but staff and Taste of Country reader opinion were most influential. Songs included on previous Top Country Songs lists were not eligible. A song may have been released in 2022, but it had to have the majority of recorded airplay or impact this year to count.
