10 Country Songs for Days That Really Suck

Life can be messy, and sometimes a bad day feels like the absolute end of the world. Even in the worst of times, Country music is there to remind us that every low point will turn around. Here are a few of our favorite tracks to get you through the bad day blues.

1. “Every Storm” – Gary Allan

“Every storm runs, runs out of rain / Just like every dark night turns into day / Every heartache will fade away / Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain”


2. “Rainbow” – Kacey Musgraves

“When it rains it pours but you didn’t even notice / It ain’t rainin’ anymore, it’s hard to breathe when all we know is / The struggle of staying above, the rising water line / Well the sky is finally open, the rain and wind stopped blowin’ / But you’re stuck out in the same old storm again / You hold tight to your umbrella, darlin’ I’m just tryin’ to tell ya / That there’s always been a rainbow hangin’ over your head”

3. “Break on Me” – Keith Urban

“Break on me / Shatter like glass / Come apart in my hands / Take as long as it takes, girl / Break on me / Put your head on my chest / Let me help you forget / When your heart needs to break / Just break on me”


4. “So Small” – Carrie Underwood

“‘Cause sometimes that mountain you’ve been climbing / Is just a grain of sand / And what you’ve been out there searching for forever / Is in your hands / And when you figure out love is all that matters after all / It sure makes everything else seem so small”


5. “Stand” – Rascal Flatts

“Cause when push comes to shove / You taste what you’re made of / You might bend till you break / ‘Cause it’s all you can take / On your knees, you look up / Decide you’ve had enough / You get mad, you get strong / Wipe your hands, shake it off / Then you stand”


6. “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” – Martina McBride

“When you’re weak, I’ll be strong / When you let go, I’ll hold on / When you need to cry, I swear / That I’ll be there to dry your eyes / When you feel lost and scared to death / Like you can’t take one more step / Just take my hand, together we can do it / I’m gonna love you through it”


7. “If You’re Going Through Hell” – Rodney Atkins

“If you’re going through Hell / Keep on going, don’t slow down / If you’re scared, don’t show it / You might get out / Before the devil even knows you’re there”


8. “Fly” – Maddie & Tae

“So keep on climbing, though the ground might shake / Just keep on reaching though the limb might break / We’ve come this far, don’t you be scared now / ‘Cause you can learn to fly on the way down”


9. “Rescue” – Hunter Hayes

“Through all the highs and lows / The can’t undo’s I regret the most / The wall so hard feels like I can’t get through / Oh, the rescue / Every morning by your side / Just one look at you sometimes / You don’t even know you’re coming to / To the rescue”

10. “Doin’ Fine” – Lauren Alaina

“I’m doin’ fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken / Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open / I still got fear inside of me / I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright / For the first time in a long time I’m doin’ fine”
