Three artists enjoying their first hit can be found inside the Top 10 on this monthly list of country music's hottest songs. The September 2022 Top 40 is filled with love and heartbreak, and just a little boozing.

Newcomers Bailey Zimmerman and Jelly Roll are first-timers who rank high this month. Tyler Hubbard's debut solo single "5 Foot 9" also finds room between songs by traditionalist Jon Pardi and contemporary crooner Mitchell Tenpenny. None of these country men rank No. 1, however. Congratulations to Cole Swindell for moving up one spot this month to nab No. 1.

Top 10 Country Songs of 2022 So Far, Ranked

There are plenty of feel-good country jams on this list of the top country songs of 2022, but the No. 1 song is a gut punch. These 10 songs are ranked by critical acclaim, radio and sales success, and importance to the genre.

Five of the 10 artists made our Top Country Songs list from 2021 as well, but there are no repeats. If a song made a previous list or didn't spend most of its time on the charts in 2022, it's not eligible. So, before you ask where your favorite song is, be sure the miss isn't just a technicality.
