What a year it has been for country music. The top country songs of 2010 have been refreshingly eclectic, as the charts have let pop-crossover smashes share the spotlight with traditional tunes. The Boot counts down our picks for the best songs of the year:

 #4.) Free,' Zac Brown Band
This single reminds us why we love pretty much anything Zac and the guys do. Not only does it showcase their perfectly tight harmonies -- as well as guest vocals from Joey + Rory -- the lyric makes us feel, for at least a few minutes, that everything really is right in our world. Lyrics like "Drive until the city lights / Dissolve into a country sky / Just me and you" take us, if only for a few moments, to a carefree place.
