It’s been 11 years since we’ve gotten to know and love American Idol and its contestants.
Especially the country ones. So when Billboard put together this list of the Top
100 songs by Idol finalists
, based on the chart performance on the Hot 100, I took a long, hard look and pulled
out my favorite songs. And to absolutely no one’s surprise, they are all country. They are almost all from Carrie
Underwood
, but there are a few surprises on the list, too. Like Josh
Gracin
. Here are the 31 country songs, in countdown order based on their rank on the original list.
