Top 150 Canadian Songs of All Time

I’ve tried to compile a list of the top 150 Canadian Country Songs as a way of celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday. There’s a lot of great music here and I’ve jotted down some interesting points. I would also like to say 'thank you' to Heather Klages for her help and valuable input on this project.

· 30 of the top 50 songs are from a female artist or include a female on lead vocals

· The newest song to make the list is Dallas Smith Autograph released August 2016

· The Oldest song to make the list is Wilf Carter There’s a Love Knot In My Lariat 1937

· The 90’s dominate with 42 percent of songs coming from the decade

· The top year is 1995 with 13 songs

· The Top artist is Shania Twain with 10 songs on the list. That narrowly beats Terri Clark and Anne Murray who each placed 9 songs on the list.

· Ian and Sylvia are easily the most recognized duo and Ian Tyson also appears several times as a solo artist.

· Hank Snow’s I’m Moving On & I Don’t Hurt Anymore combined to spend 41 weeks at #1 on the American Country Billboard chart (Canada’s RPM Chart was established in 1964).

· Canada has some incredible Female talent. Shania Twain, Terri Clark, Anne Murray, Michelle Wright, Carroll Baker and Carolyn Dawn Johnson really jump off the page at you.
