Top 17 Most Underrated Songs That Should Be Played On Local Country Radio
Have you ever heard a song that you are 100% certain is way better than most songs on the typical mainstream country radio that plays today? You are not alone! Mainstream country radio is much like the media (CNN). They will literally play anything to keep them popular. Sad, right? Shouldn't we be giving spins to the artist with the most spin requests? As it turns out, you can't even request songs to play on most major stations these days. Examples of Houston area Country Music Radio:
The New 93Q (No Song Request Available)
100.3 The Bull (No Song Request Available)
Remember back in the 80's and early 90's when we could call in to local radio stations and request songs to be played? Whatever happened to that? If you are looking for Florida Georgia Line or Luke Bryan on this list, spoiler alert: You can exit stage left.
