Celebrate National One Hit Wonder Day with 30+ Country One Hit Wonders!
Today we celebrate National One Hit Wonder Day and I put together a list of my favorite one hit wonders' songs!
There have been several One Hit Wonders in country music over the years. Many of them are songs that I sing at karaoke. If I were an artist on this list, I wouldn't be ashamed of being labeled as a "One Hit Wonder" because most of these songs are ones that people still remember and love. No matter how big or short their career was, they left their mark in country music, which is more than most can say.
Just so there is no confusion here, let me define a one hit wonder. In this case will be defined as "an artist who is only known for one song by the majority of people." That's not to say that you might not know any other songs of theirs or that they haven't written other popular songs. This list is solely based on their singing career.
In no particular order, let's see if you remember some of these...
