Best Songs About Guns

Part 2 (country)

We continue this series with 5 more great songs featuring guns as the backdrop of the music.

1) 'Guns' - By Justin Moore

If ever there was a gun-lovin' song, this is it. Justin Moore included 'Guns' on his 2011 'Outlaws Like Me' album. It's a unabashed tribute to rifles, shotguns, muzzle loaders and handguns. "I'm gonna tell you once and listen, son / As long as I'm alive and breathing / You wont take my guns," Moore sings in what could be an anthem for defenders of the Second Amendment.

2) 'Big Iron' - By Marty Robins

Marty Robbins' 1960 single is Western set to a country beat. A stranger rides into town with "big iron on his hip," and squares off with Texas Red. It was a minor hit for Robbins, but the imagery used to describe the showdown and the gun is memorable enough to make this list of the best gun songs.

3) 'Cleaning This Gun' - By Rodney Atkins

Few parents can listen to Rodney Atkins' 'Cleaning This Gun' without chuckling. While sung tongue-in-cheek, it's a story that more than a few country fans can relate to in one way or another. It may have even inspired a new generation of fathers using old-school tricks to let boyfriends know they'd better treat their daughters properly. The 2007 hit came at the peak of Atkins' career.

4) 'Gunpowder and Lead' - Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert's Top 10 hit from 2008 is a revenge tale. The singer began to define her career with this song, the story of a woman who has grown tired of taking abuse from her rotten husband. It's a violent lyric that was, for the most part, celebrated by country music fans.

5) 'Granddaddy's Gun' by Aaron Lewis/Blake Shelton

Both Blake Shelton and Aaron Lewis recorded 'Granddaddy's Gun,' but Lewis released it as a single, so he gets the credit for bringing the song to the masses. While many of the other songs on our list of gun songs rely on a single emotion or fantastic story, this well-written cut shows real depth and understanding of family. Lewis sings it like a man who still has his grandfather's gun hanging on his wall.
