17 Overrated Country Songs That Still Manage To Get You Hype Every Time

17 Overrated Country Songs That Still Manage To Get You Hype Every Time

Heard these songs at least 100 times, but would gladly listen to them 100 more.

A few weeks ago, I released 21 Underrated Country Songs That Even Country Haters Can Get Down With. This week, we're paying tribute to 17 of the jams that are overplayed as f*ck but STILL get everyone hype at tailgates and parties.

1. American Kids - Kenny Chesney

When even my country hating friends know all the lyrics to this song, that's how you know it's overplayed but still hype.

2. Sunny and 75 - Joe Nichols

3. Country Girl (Shake It For Me) - Luke Bryan

Barn dance, tailgate, country concert pregame: This is a CLASSIC. There's not one person in the room that won't know at least the chorus to this song.

4. Body Like A Back Road - Sam Hunt

Uh huh. Sam Hunt back at it with another classic party jam.

5. Somethin' I'm Good At - Brett Eldredge

6. Dirt Road Anthem - Jason Aldean

Another classic. I'm not a big fan of Jason's (especially not since his latest album), but this is a song I can get down with. It's always on my country playlists.

7. Bottoms Up - Brantley Gilbert

8. House Party - Sam Hunt

Name one party/tailgate/pregame where you HAVEN'T heard this song. It's everywhere. You couldn't escape it even if you tried, but I'm sure you already know that.

9. This Is How We Roll - Florida Georgia Line ft. Luke Bryan

If I ever set an alarm, this is my go-to song. I'm not even ashamed. It gets me hype in the morning, OK?

10. Wagon Wheel - Darius Rucker

11. Drunk On A Plane - Dierks Bentley

Anyone else want to get drunk on a plane after listening to this one? This is such a feel-good song, I couldn't not put it on this list.

12. Buy Me A Boat - Chris Janson

OK, so maybe you can't get as hype to this one as you can the others on this list, but it's undeniable that most people at the party know at least the chorus to this track.

13. Sunshine & Whiskey - Frankie Ballard

14. Cruise - Florida Georgia Line

If you're really looking to get hype, then listen to the remix version with Nelly. But this one gets the job done, too, don't worry.

15. Heartache On The Dance Floor - Jon Pardi

16. Man! I Feel Like A Woman - Shania Twain

Oh, baby. If this song doesn't get you HYPE, then you're not livin'. This is a classic, timeless, catchy af track (even though the majority of people only know the line with the title in it).

17. Tennessee Whiskey - Chris Stapleton

All these jams got me feelin' some type of way. It doesn't matter how many more times I am willing or forced to listen to these songs; there's no doubt that I'll be raging every time.

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!


We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness


What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst


It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen


Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad


Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin


Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate


Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny


More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body


Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 


Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.


I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.


One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.

In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.

Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.

After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.

Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.

Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?

The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.

The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.

Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
