As we round out the end of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are sharing some of the best mood booster country songs that you can listen to all year round. We recognize how many people struggle with their mental health and we truly believe that music can be an important part of healing.

“Living” by Dierks Bentley

“Some days you’re living, like you’ll never die / Blue’s a little bluer up in the sky / Your highs a little high / You feel that fire you been missin’ / Some days you’re living”

“Better Boat” by Kenny Chesney

“Now and then I let it go / around the waves I can’t control / If it’s workin’ I don’t know / When I get done the thing may not float / But I’m learnin’ how to build a better boat”


“Life Rolls On” by Florida Georgia Line

“As long as my heart’s beatin’ / And these old lungs keep breathin’ / The highs and the lows, yes and the no’s only gonna make you strong”

“Most People Are Good” by Luke Bryan

“I believe you love who you love / Ain’t nothin’ you should ever be ashamed of / I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks / I believe most people are good”

“Good Vibes” by Chris Janson

“I’m gettin’ them good vibes / I’m livin’ this good life / I’m breathin’ on God’s time / And I ain’t gonna waste one breath”

“Follow Your Arrow” by Kacey Musgraves

“Make lots of noise / Kiss lots of boys / Or kiss lots of girls / If that’s something you’re into / When the straight and narrow / Gets a / little too straight / Roll up a joint, or don’t / Just follow your arrow / Wherever it points”

“Something To Be Proud Of” by Montgomery Gentry

“And if all you ever really do is the best you can / Well, you did it man / That’s something to be proud of / That’s life you can hang your hat on”

“The Bones” by Maren Morris


“Yeah, life sure can try to put love through it, but we built this right so nothing’s ever gonna move it / When the bones are good the rest don’t matter”

“Best Shot” by Jimmie Allen

“I’ve struck out, I’ve been knocked down / more times than I can count / But that don’t matter now / ‘Cause when you smile I see the sun sink down on a coast out in California”

“Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw

“And I loved deeper / And I spoke sweeter / And I gave forgiveness I’ve been denying / And he said, someday I hope you get the chance / To live like you were dying”


“Happy Does” by Kenny Chesney

“Happy is as happy does / Grab a 6 string, find a rope swing / Hang a palm tree in your truck / Drink a beer just because / Steal a slow dance in a rainstorm / And a kiss from who you love / Laugh and live with a half full cup / Yeah, happy is as happy does”

“Be A Light” by Thomas Rhett

“In a place that needs change, make a difference / In a time full of noise, just listen / ‘Cause life is but a breeze, better live it In a place that needs change, make a difference”

“Riser” by Dierks Bentley

“I’m a riser / I’m a get up off the ground, don’t run and hider / Pushing comes to shovin’ / Hey I’m a fighter”

“Homegrown” by Zac Brown Band

“I got some good friends that live down the street / Got a good looking woman with her arms ‘round me / Here in a small town where it feels like home / I got everything I need and nothing that I don’t”

“The Rest Of Our Life” by Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill

“There’s one thing I should be killing off And giving up now / And that’s worrying about life Oh I’ll be fine If my waistline grows
I’ll be fine / Even if time takes its toll / We’ll stay young for the rest of our lives”
