The real question with regard to this month's Top 40 is, where will Beyoncé land? "Texas Hold 'Em" is a viral smash, but airplay and fan response matter on this chart.

The March 2024 Top 40 Country Songs list includes Queen Bey, plus mainstays including Luke Combs, Lainey Wilson and Morgan Wallen. For the first time in a long time, Wallen isn't inside the Top 5, but that may change in the next 31 days.

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.
