Country Music Songs About Rain

Country Songs About Rain...

As far as I'm concerned we could never have enough country songs about rain. Then again, I feel the same way about songs about sunshine.

Our world will always have rain and sunshine, so these songs will never get outdated. They will always be evergreen...they will always have meaning and substance.

Below I have compiled my favorite country music songs about rain into a fun story. Reading it during a rain storm enhances it's entertainment.

Wishing you many rain storms and rainbows afterwards.

Rainy day country music songs...

As I sit here and listen to the rain pounding on the roof and the thunder booming in the distance I begin to sing rain songs.

An idea pops in my head, why not create a tribute using some country music "Songs About Rain."

Rain songs have been very influential with the country western music industry so why not have a bit of fun with them.

Whether it's "Raining On Sunday" or "Raining In Dallas" I always think "Bring On The Rain" because our animals, rivers, plants and vegetation flourish with it.

Personally I "Like The Rain" it's like a cleansing of the mind. Rain washes away residue and "Everytime It Rains" it creates a euphoria feeling of peace and tranquility.

"I Wish It Would Rain More!" For those who don't like rain, don't sweat it! "Every Storm Runs out of Rain" eventually. Always remember there is always sunshine at the end of every storm.

"I Wish I Were The Rain" at times, I could go anywhere and hover over an area that particularly interests me.

I could be a "Georgia Rain" and while I'm "Rockin' With The Rhythm Of The Rain" I could explore the "Smoky Mountain Rain."

Just in case you haven't realized it yet, "I Love A Rainy Night!"

It seems like "It Always Rains On Saturday" which puts a damper on weekend plans, but if one should decide to get "Naked In The Rain" while listening to the wonderful sounds of "Rain On A Tin Roof" one might think hey, "Rain Is a Good Thing!"

It's been said many, many times "There's Something Sexy About Rain."

"When It Rains" it pours is a saying most of have used at one time or another. We might find our "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" and think why can't life be as "Steady As The Rain." We are always thankful that "Hard Rain Don't Last" and when the storm has passed we could have "A Better Rain."

"I'm No Stranger To The Rain" and "I Sure Can Smell The Rain" shortly before it makes it's appearance. "The Rhythm Of The Pouring Rain" can be soothing and relaxing if allowed to be.

Some people dislike rain, "Like A River Dreams Of Rain" I suggest we appreciate it and relish in the moment. "Rain Fallin" is much better than a drought.

The storm continues to pass by and "It Isn't Just Raining" it's pouring and I say "Come On Rain" is that all you got? All of a sudden "The Thunder Rolls" and I think there you go, "She's My Kind Of Rain!"

I am not one to say rain, rain go away come back another day I say "Let It Rain" because it's "Rainin' You" and that's always a great thing.

"Raining On Our Love" makes a relationship even more meaningful because "Everytime That It Rains" it's another good cleansing.

The storm has passed and the sunshine's rays are brightening up the sky. Maybe next time we'll have some "Kentucky Rain."

I'm not a country music fan (you're going to hate me), but there are a lot of old pop songs with "rain" in the title, too. I can think of two right now: "Singing in the Rain" is a real oldie, plus "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head" from way back in the '60s, but I imagine some country music singer has re-recorded the latter by now....That usually happens with good pop tunes. They cross over!

Hi Sunshine 625. two great hubs. country music is a favourite of mine. Willie Nelson's 'blue eyes crying in the rain' is brilliant. I country music has certainly changed in the last few years. 'rainy night in georgia' is another favourite. voted up.

Hi Old Albion, I'm glad you enjoyed both of my country music rain hubs. I had a lot of fun creating them. Country music has changed a lot over the years. We either adapt to the new tunes or keep on enjoying the old country. I enjoy all country:)

I know it's a cliche, but I especially love the country songs that feature the rain and at the same time include the the broken-down truck, the wife who left, and the dog who died. Nothing better for the blues than to listen to a few of these in a row and realize you don't have it all that bad after all.

Thanks for introducing me to some songs and artists I didn't know. Now I have more playback material for a blue day. :)

One of my first C&W collections I bought had 'I love a rainy night' on it. IT was so catchy to listen to I must have had it on hundreds of time ( Well I do live in rainy England!) This is another of your sensational collections Linda- I have a whole new list to listen to now. And I wanna write a rain themed Country song - You're gonna get me sacked!

I adore country music and once had an all time favourite, but forgive me for having a senior moment because for the life of me I can't remember his name lol I think it was Stephen ? In fact I know it was Stephen but the surname has gone forever in my brain. Now good ole Garth Brooks and Clint Black make my shoes shake lol. Well done and what a fantastic memory. x

Hi Vincent, As much as I am a fan of Keith Urban I don't think I could put myself through watching American Idol. Ever since Simon Cowell left it's just not the same. I'll support KU in other forms of his entertainment, but not AI. Subject to change. Maybe. No promises. Thanks for your comment :)

Yep, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head" here in Pasadena too. I noticed someone already caught that song. I also loved Willie Nelson's "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain." He sure wrote some great songs, didn't he? I was going to write a hub about water songs, but did one about water as a theme to introduce different musical styles instead - related, but not the same. I liked this. Nice tribute, Sunshine.

Do you know "Rainy Night In Georgia"? That's an old sad, sad country song...can't remember who sang it. I'm not crazy about country music but there are some good "rain" songs that are not country.
