When you’re in the mood to listen to and license a specific type of music, it’s a major advantage to have unlimited access to a royalty free music catalog that’s diverse and ever-growing. (*Cough* like Soundstripe.) 

But let’s face it: Having thousands of songs to choose from becomes a logistical nightmare if the search and filter functions are nonexistent or just flat out bad. None of us want to spend a ton of extra time searching for the perfect songs when there’s a quicker alternative.

Fortunately, we’ve built out our audio library so that you can zero in on the songs you like — and weed out the ones you don’t. 

If you need royalty free country music for your next creative project, this blog will show you how to navigate our library and find exactly what you want. To shorten your search even more, we’ll also share some of our top country playlists and songs. 

Our most popular country music playlists

It’s no secret that the country music genre has been shaped by artists like Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, and George Strait. But these days a new generation of artists — like Lil Naz X — are changing the status quo of what classifies as “country music.” 

As the genre continues to evolve from its traditional bluegrass and folk roots, one thing that remains the same is that this music is all about storytelling. And that’s true whether artists are using vocals or just the highs and lows of instrumentals. 

Given that country music has such a rich history and exciting future, it’s only fair to share three Soundstripe playlists that include a wide range of traditional and contemporary country songs:

10 popular royalty free country songs 

The playlists above are a great place to start if you’re just now getting familiar with the country music options in our library. Instead of sorting through thousands of songs right out the gate, you can start with one of our curated playlists. 

Pro Tip: When you come across a song that you like, click the “Similar Song” icon to see a dropdown list of country music with a similar tone and feel.   

If you’d still prefer to start your search on a song-by-song basis, we got you. Here’s a roundup of 10 of the most popular country music songs in our library to-date:

Looking for more royalty free country music?

Hopefully, we’ve been able to point you in the direction of royalty free country music that will be a great fit for your current or upcoming projects. But if you still haven’t found exactly what you’re looking for, we’re here to help with that too. 

Once you navigate to our music catalog and click the “Country” genre filter, there are different actions you can take to curate the song options to your taste. You can filter based on mood, characteristic, instrument, and a number of other categories. 

For example, let’s say you’re looking for a traditional country song with a happy feel. You can include these filters in your search and get results like this:

 

 

But that’s not all. If you want to exclude songs that feature banjo sounds, you can click the exclude button and significantly filter down your results based on this criteria. (Here’s what those results would look like.)

The big takeaway here is that you can include and exclude as many (or as few) filters as you want when you’re searching for country music, LoFi hip hop, classical music, or any other genre. This is the easiest and most efficient way to narrow your search from thousands of songs to a dozen or so — and it only takes a few clicks. 

When you sign up for one of Soundstripe’s music plans, you can license all of the music you need and reap the benefits of our lifetime license even if you decide to cancel one day. 

If you’re ready to start licensing music from our library, you can view the plan options and sign up here. If you’d rather wait and do some more market research on your own, our music can keep you company in the meantime.
