When it comes to radio, I’m better at some things than others. Keeping my mouth shut, wearing flattering clothes to station events, and not eating while broadcasting would be in the “others” category. But one thing at which I really excel is picking songs that are NEVER gonna be big hits.

All these songs have one thing in common: I LOVE them. They’re kind of songs I keep on infinite repeat on my Ipod. This is not to say I don’t also love lots of songs that do become humongous hits—just about anything recorded by Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, George Strait and Little Big Town come to mind.

Songs I detest, however, usually end up as massive, award-winning, please-God-don’t-make-me-play-it-again hits. No really—if I have to play that song again I’m gonna THROW MYSELF INTO THE WILLAMETTE WITHOUT PROTECTIVE GEAR.

Below are links to a just a few tunes that never made it huge, but are on my infinite playlist. You can click on the link to hear 'em if you want to. And you WANT to, trust me.

Mendocino County Line – Lee Ann Womack & Willie Nelson
Anything Goes – Randy Houser
Last Call – Lee Ann Womack
Relentless – Jason Aldean
Hell On Heels – Pistol Annies
Work Hard, Play Harder – Gretchen Wilson
Muddy Water – Trace Adkins

And by the way—what’s your favorite “misfit” song? Tell me in the comments below!

Misfit songs
Love Mendocino County Line but my favorite is Trace Adkins, I Can't Outrun You, truly haunting, beautiful and the video, check it out on CMT http://www.cmt.com/videos/trace-adkins/319911/i-cant-outrun-you.jhtml and be prepared to be moved. Why theynever released this as a single baffles me to this day.

My favorite misfit song ever is...
My favorite misfit song is really off of a misfit album. Lord only knows why "Pistol Annies" never got the respect it deserves??!! I like all but one song on that album and one of the best songs I have heard in a long time has got to be "Boys From The South". I snagged myself a "Boy From The South", Charlotte, North Carolina to be exact. Every time I hear that song it makes me smile! :-)

WOW - Thanks for the suggestions...
I will check out Shovels and Rope, and Pistol Annies whole album is GREAT, as mentioned. Boys From The South is one of my faves, also. Not sure why radio is so resistant to it! ~Michele
