RedDirtNC Songs of the Year, 2018

Following are the RedDirtNC selections for top songs of the year in 2018.

Almost every song on each of the previously named top albums of the year was great and warranted consideration for this list. For that reason, the top songs of the year have been divided into two different categories – a pick from each album of the year and nine other songs that made an impact over the past 12 months.

In order by release date, one song from each top album that stood out and nine more that impressed throughout the year.
