New country songs are hard to come by this week, but there are nearly a dozen albums and EPs to feast on.

Craig Morgan's Enlisted EP leads the group — the veteran hitmaker tapped six country stars to join him on four re-recordings and two new songs. Luke Combs, Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson make up half of the project, but it's the reimagining of "That's What I Love About Sunday" that's blowing our minds.

Elsewhere, find new music from a Yellowstone star, a former American Idol and one of country music's hottest viral stars of the last 10 years. Then, look for Sam Hunt and Scotty McCreery's new singles. It's Christmas time in the McCreery household, and his new holiday cut is proof.

YouTube videos for the songs and links to relevant interviews can be found for every new release. This list of new country songs and albums released this week (Oct. 14-21) will be updated if anyone else surprises us before end of day.

The Top 40 Country Songs of 2023, Ranked

The best country songs of 2023 fit snugly over your life and experiences. Each is written from personal experiences, but somehow, translate as if they were custom to each of us.

We've loved, we've longed, we've lost and we've cut loose in the country.

Airplay charts, sales data and streaming numbers helped make this list of country music's Top 40 songs of 2023, but staff and Taste of Country reader opinion were most influential. Songs included on previous Top Country Songs lists were not eligible. A song may have been released in 2022, but it had to have the majority of recorded airplay or impact this year to count.
