18. Ray Scott, "Drinkin' Beer"
Despite a fathoms-deep singing voice and wicked songwriting wit, Scott doesn't often get the credit he deserves. But somebody should at least buy the country traditionalist a cold one or two for penning the boozing song of the year. With so many drinking tunes on the market, it's hard to stand apart from the six-pack, but Scott turns in a clever ode to suds that is far from your regular domestic light draught. "Drinkin' Beer" is premium lager, with a hook as inebriating as the titular subject matter.
