There were a lot of great songs that came out of the 80's. I was just looking up what happened on this date in country music history and I see that in 1987 the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was sitting at number one with "Fishin' in the Dark". I loved and still love that song. It got me thinking about songs I loved from that time period and put together this list.

Keep in mind that these are in no way the biggest hits of the 80's but certainly some of my favorites. Buckle up and jump in the time machine for a trip back to big hair and animal print stretch pants.
