One of my favorite pastimes here in Billings on a weekend is to go out to some place in town and enjoy Karaoke. Heck, back from 2011 through 2015 I even ran Karaoke in my hometown, to give options for those on weekends wanting somewhere to go out.

However, those days have mostly come and passed for me. I far prefer staying home, kicking back on the couch with some kettle corn, and watching a movie or two. Though... this got my attention!

10 of the Best Country Songs for Karaoke

When it comes to karaoke, even if you don't have the greatest voice, you can still have a good time. Because the point isn't to have the best voice in the room. The point is to have a fun, shared experience with your fellow singers. In my opinion, a passionate performer makes for a way better evening than someone who happens to have a pretty voice. That being said, what songs are in your repertoire? We asked around to see what country songs you thought were the best for karaoke night. Take a look through the 10 best below, and perhaps you'll find something new to add to your lineup.
