Country Songs that Calm You Down
Sometimes the right country song can be our own personal therapist. Let’s face it though, one person’s idea of being calmed down is another person’s idea of pushing buttons!
As an example, getting lost in a country song that redirects your stress to the mundane may be relaxing to some while listening to a song that more specifically relates to your own story works best for others.
Here you’ll find six songs that specifically speak to certain areas in life. Some fall into the ‘get my mind off of things category’, while others are more life-topic specific! Add each of them to your playlist and, when you feel you need a little calming, blast them through your headphones!
(1) Beer With Jesus, by Thomas Rhett
If you could have a beer with Jesus, what would you talk about. Would you ask him how he was always able to turn the other cheek to save others? Maybe you’d ask how he changed a sinners heart, or what’s on the other side and is mom and daddy alright?
If life is stressing you out, and you need a bit of spiritual calm, this very beautiful song by Thomas Rhett is both memorable and reflective. Taking stock of our lives often hits us in times of stress and perhaps we find our way by simply growing through our painful lessons or experiences.
(2) Go On Without Me, by Brett Eldredge
If someone you love has passed away, and you need reassurance, this incredible song encourages you in a positive and slightly uplifting way. In fact, the song is so powerful in it’s message, that I’ve actually written about the song as it relates to the loss of my own loved one.

(3) Wake Me Up, by Tebey Featuring Emerson Drive
The fast past melody of this song gives you the feeling of moving forward in life. It makes you feel as though you’re on an actual road trip, a trip that represents your road of life. As the lyrics say, ‘Wake me up when it’s all over, when I’m wiser and I’m older, all this time I was finding myself, I didn’t know I was lost’. If you’re looking for a tune that gives you a sense of growth, coupled with a little excitement, then this choice works. There’s nothing sad about this one!

Are you looking for a song that talks about how much joy and love you get from just being with your family?

He talks about watching his little guy as he holds a sippy cup of milk and his little blue eyed blonde daughter walking around with her shoes on wrong! If you have little ones running around the house, you’ll enjoy the truth about love here!

A feel good tune that focuses on the simple joys we experience on a day of relaxation and rest, Helluva Life brings you right into line with the calmness we crave on those R&R days.
