Last week, I brought you my Top 5 Favorite Songs About States. And, after I made that list, it go me thinking a little bit more. What about songs about cities? So, I set out to find songs about cities, and, I found a bunch of them. It was tough to make a top 5 list, but I took the challenge and made one. Today, I would like to share with you my Top 5 Favorite Songs About Cities.

"I've Been Everywhere"--Johnny Cash

 
 

This song was also on my list of my favorite songs about states. The reason it's on both lists is because he sings about so many cities and states.

4. "Maybe It Was Memphis"--Pam Tillis


 
 

This song is back from the early 90s. When I was a kid, I remember hearing this song a lot. It's one of those classic love songs. And, it mentions Memphis a few times. According to Wikipedia, "On May 24, 2011, Lauren Alaina performed the song during the finale of American Idol. Carrie Underwood selected the song as part of the round of competition in which each contestant's idol chose their song."

"Amarillo By Morning"--George Strait


 
 

This song was originally recorded in Terry Stafford in 1973. And, later, George Strait recorded it in 1983. In regard to the George Strait version of the song, according to Wikipedia, "Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song an A grade, saying that he has "finally found his niche as a performer." He goes on to say that the "simple arrangement and understated delivery are the defining elements of just about every Strait record since."

"Miami, My Amy"--Keith Whitley

 
 

A very close second, this song is on the list not only because it's about a city, but it's also on the list because of nostalgia. I remember my mom would play this song all the time. This song just brings me back to when I was a kid, and it makes me happy. This song was released back in 1986.

"Oh, Atlanta"--Alison Krauss and Union Station


 
 

And, here it is at number one, my favorite song about a city--Oh, Atlanta. I love bluegrass music, so I had to add one to the list. Alison Krauss has an amazing voice and she sings this song so beautifully.
