Believe it or not, there are quite a few country songs about money, and they aren’t just about spending it. Some of the greatest country songs about money seek to teach valuable life lessons.

While regret and loss are common country music themes, there is often much more to a country song than meets the ear. So, sit back, relax, and give these 20 country music songs about money a chance.

“9 to 5” – Dolly Parton (1980)

“9 to 5” is a song that most Americans, and people for that matter, can relate to. The song begins by outlining the daily struggle of getting out of bed and ready to face a job you don’t love.

The band name is outdated, but the song’s theme isn’t. “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind,” tells the story of a young man who grows up to understand his father’s lessons about what matters in life.

“Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind” – Confederate Railroad (1994)

The message is clear: the goal has become to make as much money as possible, then spend it all thinking that “lots of money and things” will make you happy.

“Ka-ching!” – Shania Twain (2003)

It follows the conversation between the singer and an old man he meets in a bar. They talk about women and younger days, to life and death. They part ways at the song’s closing, never to see each another again.

“People Are Crazy” – Billy Currington (2009)

“Fancy” – Reba McEntire (1990)

A cover of the Bobbie Gentry song of the same name, this is the song Reba is most known for. You should listen to it at your first opportunity if you haven’t heard it.
