The Boot put together their list of the Top 10 Country Songs of the 2010s. Although it's subjective, they're all hits, and some are career-changing songs. Here's the list:

1. "Girl Crush", Little Big Town (2014) - There was some confusion and controversy about what the song meant . . . but everyone kind of forgot about that when it became a huge it, winning two Grammys, two CMAs, and a CMT Award.

2. "Body Like a Back Road", Sam Hunt (2017) - It was THE song of 2017, spending 34 weeks at the top of the Hot Country Songs chart.

3. "The House That Built Me", Miranda Lambert (2010) - It was her first Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, and it won her a Grammy, two CMAs, and three ACMs.

4. "You Should Be Here", Cole Swindell (2015) - It's a tribute to his late father, and it's become an "anthem for others who have experienced personal loss."

5. "Springsteen", Eric Church (2012) - It was inspired by a girl he took to a Springsteen show, and also how he reveres the way The Boss has built his career.

6. "Die a Happy Man", Thomas Rhett (2015) - A hit song about a happy marriage. Imagine that.

7. "Humble and Kind", Tim McGraw (2016) - Tim didn't write it, but he made it his. It won a Grammy, a CMA Award, an American Music Award, and a CMT Award.

8. "Something In the Water", Carrie Underwood (2014) - The spiritual theme helped earn it a Grammy and two CMT Awards . . . plus a Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Song, and two Inspirational Country Music Awards.

9. "Nobody to Blame", Chris Stapleton (2015) - It was his first Top 10 hit, and was one of the reasons people finally started noticing his amazing talent.

10. "That's My Kind of Night", Luke Bryan (2013) - It stayed at the top of the charts for 11 consecutive weeks, and, according to The Boot, "sealed his status as a superstar."
