Pandora's Most Thumbed Up Country Songs of 201612:44 PM
2016 brought an injection of great new songs to country music, and Pandora listeners liked it, enough to give these 25 tracks a total of 38 MILLION thumbs up.
Chris Stapleton takes the lead, appearing most frequently on our list, with a year for the history books beginning with his November 2015 CMA Awards performance with Justin Timberlake.
Stapleton wasn't the only break-through this year.
The list of top 25 include several new acts who hit it big this year including Cam, Kane Brown, Chris Lane, Jon Pardi and Cassadee Pope.
"Look no further for the year's biggest love songs, break-up songs, drinking songs, and a ray of 'Humble and Kind'-ness, just in time for the holidays," Rachel Whitney, Pandora's Country Curator, said.
