The Best Country Songs About Rain, Thunder, and Storms

As far as I'm concerned, we can never have enough country songs about rain. Then again, I feel the same way about songs about sunshine.

Our world will always have rain and sunshine, so these songs will never get outdated. They will always be evergreen. They will always have meaning and substance.

Below, I have compiled my favorite country music songs about rain into a fun story. Reading it during a rainstorm enhances its entertainment. Wishing you many rainstorms and rainbows afterward!

"Bring on the Rain": A Fun Story Using Country Song Titles

As I sit here and listen to the rain pounding on the roof and the thunder booming in the distance, I begin to sing rain songs. An idea pops into my head: Why not create a tribute using some country music "Songs About Rain"? Rain songs have been very influential in the country western music industry, so why not have a bit of fun with them?

Whether it's "Raining on Sunday" or "Raining in Dallas," I always think "Bring on the Rain" because our animals, rivers, plants, and vegetation flourish with it. Personally, I "Like The Rain" because it's like a cleansing of the mind. Rain washes away residue, and "Everytime It Rains," it creates a euphoric feeling of peace and tranquility.

"I Wish It Would Rain More!" For those who don't like rain, don't sweat it! "Every Storm Runs out of Rain" eventually. Always remember: There is always sunshine at the end of every storm.

"I Wish I Were the Rain" at times; I could go anywhere and hover over an area that particularly interests me. I could be a "Georgia Rain," and while I'm "Rockin' With the Rhythm of the Rain," I could explore the "Smoky Mountain Rain." Just in case you haven't realized it yet, "I Love a Rainy Night!"

It seems like "It Always Rains on Saturday," which puts a damper on weekend plans, but if one should decide to get "Naked in the Rain" while listening to the wonderful sounds of "Rain on a Tin Roof," one might think, hey, "Rain Is a Good Thing!" It's been said many, many times, "There's Something Sexy About Rain."

"When It Rains," it pours—that's a saying most of have used at one time or another. We might find our "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" and think why can't life be as "Steady as the Rain"? We are always thankful that "Hard Rain Don't Last" and when the storm has passed, we could have "A Better Rain."

"I'm No Stranger to the Rain" and "I Sure Can Smell the Rain" shortly before it makes its appearance. "The Rhythm of the Pouring Rain" can be soothing and relaxing if allowed to be.

Some people dislike rain. "Like a River Dreams of Rain," I suggest we appreciate it and relish in the moment. "Rain Fallin" is much better than a drought.

The storm continues to pass by, and "It Isn't Just Raining," it's pouring. I say, "Come on Rain," is that all you got? All of a sudden "The Thunder Rolls," and I think there you go, "She's My Kind of Rain!" I am not one to say rain, rain go away, come back another day; I say "Let It Rain" because it's "Rainin' You," and that's always a great thing.

"Raining on Our Love" makes a relationship even more meaningful because "Everytime That It Rains," it's another good cleansing. The storm has passed and the sunshine's rays are brightening up the sky. Maybe next time we'll have some "Kentucky Rain."

Thank you for sharing additional rainy day songs, Shyron!

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on October 24, 2017:

Hi Linda, I thought of another rain song I did not see here, which I love, It is "Raining in my Soul" by Roseann Cash, yes daughter of Johnny.

Blessings my friend

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on October 23, 2017:

Linda, one of my favorite rain songs is "I'll Do my Crying In The Rain" The Everly Brothers.

Love these songs and country music of all kinds.

Blessings my friend.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on August 30, 2015:

Fantastic song addition, Peg! Thank you!

Peg Cole from North Dallas, Texas on August 28, 2015:

Got to love those rainy songs. You have certainly compiled a rain barrel full of them. It may not be a country song but I love Gordon Lightfoot's Rainy Day People.

Daisy Mariposa from Orange County (Southern California) on July 05, 2015:

Linda (Sunshine625),

Until you published two Hubs on the subject, I had not realized there were so many country music songs about rain.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on March 04, 2015:

Hi Prasetio and Audrey...Glad you enjoyed the list of country music songs about rain! :)

prasetio30 from malang-indonesia on November 30, 2013:

I love country music.'s so romantic. Especially for the rainy season in my country. Thank you very much for sharing with us. Cheers :-)


Audrey Hunt from Pahrump NV on November 29, 2013:

Great list of songs about rain and what a fun hub!

Love the rain, the sound and how all of nature's thirst is quenched. It's like mother nature is taking a shower :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on July 02, 2013:

Jools99 ~ DDE ~ Tills ~ Maria ~ Mary ~ hichkey ~ IslandBites ~ Rasta ~ Christy ~ WaterGeek ... Thank you for stopping by! :)

IslandBites from Puerto Rico on June 07, 2013:

Nice hub!

hichkey on May 30, 2013:

I love rain and thanks for sharing this wonderful list of rain songs.

Mary Hyatt from Florida on April 02, 2013:

Do you know "Rainy Night In Georgia"? That's an old sad, sad country song...can't remember who sang it. I'm not crazy about country music but there are some good "rain" songs that are not country.

Voted UP, etc.

Marvin Parke from Jamaica on April 01, 2013:

Georgia Rain is my favorite. I appreciate the method used to present your information.

Maria Jordan from Jeffersonville PA on January 25, 2013:

Well, I know rain does not make YOU melt, Sunshine!

I love a rainy night, especially when I am listening to my country.

Voted UP and UABI. Love, MM

Christy Birmingham from British Columbia, Canada on January 21, 2013:

Raining on Sunday by Keith Urban alllll the way :)

Susette Horspool from Pasadena CA on January 12, 2013:

Yep, "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head" here in Pasadena too. I noticed someone already caught that song. I also loved Willie Nelson's "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain." He sure wrote some great songs, didn't he? I was going to write a hub about water songs, but did one about water as a theme to introduce different musical styles instead - related, but not the same. I liked this. Nice tribute, Sunshine.

Mary Craig from New York on December 11, 2012:

SS, when you put it that way, who doesn't love rain ;)

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on December 11, 2012:

A lovely thought of rain and music, just listening to both is so such a gret feeling.

Jools Hogg from North-East UK on December 11, 2012:

"It's rainin' cowboys - Hallelujah" or is that "It's Rainin' Cowboys - YeeHaw!"...great hub.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on December 10, 2012:

Hi Vincent, As much as I am a fan of Keith Urban I don't think I could put myself through watching American Idol. Ever since Simon Cowell left it's just not the same. I'll support KU in other forms of his entertainment, but not AI. Subject to change. Maybe. No promises. Thanks for your comment :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on December 10, 2012:

Hi Trinity, Yes I had a blast writing this hub. How could I not with all the country music songs about rain for me to work with! Thanks for your comment.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on December 10, 2012:

Thanks LoveDoc and Pamela. I'm glad you enjoyed the Country Music Songs about Rain! :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on December 10, 2012:

Hi Made, I hope you enjoyed your first snow. You could listen to rain songs during snow storms also!

Vincent Moore on December 10, 2012:

What a creative hub indeed. You were reigning supreme with these rainy day songs. I love them all. BTW I bet you will be glued to you T.V. this season's of American Idol with one of your favourite rainy day cowboys judging, none other than the great Keith Urbain.. Whoot.

Sandy Mertens from Wisconsin, USA on November 13, 2012:

I am not into country music but this is a very good hub about rain songs.

Trinity M on October 25, 2012:

Linda this is such a creative hub!!! It must have been so much fun to write… why it makes me want to go Singing in the Rain just reading it!!! Lol! Not a country song but I couldn’t resist. Loved it! Up and awesome!!!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on October 25, 2012:

I knew there were a lot of country songs about rain, but WOW! there are more than I realized. I like songs about rain also. Awesome hub.

lovedoctor926 on October 24, 2012:

There's something about a rainy night that I love. A Rainy Night in Georgia is another nice one. Voted up!

Madeleine Salin from Finland on October 24, 2012:

Linda, now I'm waiting for the first snow. They say it's going to start snowing here today... Have a great day! (Finland, 7 am)

I'll consider that idea one day Julie! Thank you!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on October 24, 2012:

Hi Made, I'm glad you enjoyed these country music songs about rain during your rainy weather in Finland! Yeehaw!!

Jools Hogg from North-East UK on October 19, 2012:

So many songs about rain! I propose a similar article with songs including the word 'Sun' or 'Sunshine'.....bring it on :o)

Madeleine Salin from Finland on October 19, 2012:

Hi Linda, it's raining and raining here in Finland. I have to come here and look for some good country music to listen to. This wet hub is a great guide. I wish you a wonderful weekend! :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on October 10, 2012:

Enjoy the storms Daisy! Rain and hail storms are awesome!!

Daisy Mariposa from Orange County (Southern California) on October 10, 2012:


A rain and hail storm is predicted for Southern California tonight and all day tomorrow. I haven't seen a rain storm for ages. It's been several years since I've seen hail.

Thanks for the musical accompaniment ideas.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on September 18, 2012:

Hey TT, Country songs about mud?!? Hmmm. Something to think about! Thanks! :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on September 18, 2012:

Hi Tobin! I love Luke Bryan and his Rain is a Good Thing song also. Obviously you have excellent taste in music!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on September 18, 2012:

Cogerson! Welcome back to country music songs about rain. 17 months seems to fly by when you are having fun. I guess. Thanks for the visit! :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on September 18, 2012:

thebluestar, I don't know a country singer named Stephen. You've got me curious now, so if you remember please keep me posted. Thank you for your comment.

Terrye Toombs from Somewhere between Heaven and Hell without a road map. on September 18, 2012:

Excellent, Miss Sunshine! :) Now...where's the one on mud, for after the rain has gone? :)

Tyler Tobin from North Carolina on September 18, 2012:

I love Luke Bryan's, "Rain is a Good Thing." Interesting use of song titles.

UltimateMovieRankings from Virginia on September 17, 2012:

I came back for a return visit to one of the first hubs that I ever read by did 17 months go pretty quickly. I enjoyed this hub even more the second time around.

Annette Donaldson from Northern Ireland on September 17, 2012:

I adore country music and once had an all time favourite, but forgive me for having a senior moment because for the life of me I can't remember his name lol I think it was Stephen ? In fact I know it was Stephen but the surname has gone forever in my brain. Now good ole Garth Brooks and Clint Black make my shoes shake lol. Well done and what a fantastic memory. x

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on July 31, 2012:

Sherri, Docmo, Vellur, Janine...Thank you for stopping by and visiting my country music songs about rain. This hub is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Your comments are appreciated!:)

Janine Huldie from New York, New York on July 30, 2012:

Awesome list Linda. My favorites are Kentucky Rain (who doesn't love Elvis) and Eddie Rabbit's I love a Rainy Night, because latter my dad listened to this song quite a bit when I was younger. Gave me some good memories on this one. Voted up and shared too!!

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on July 30, 2012:

I love country music and you have given an awesome list. I love the rain and love your list of songs.

Mohan Kumar from UK on July 05, 2012:

One of my first C&W collections I bought had 'I love a rainy night' on it. IT was so catchy to listen to I must have had it on hundreds of time ( Well I do live in rainy England!) This is another of your sensational collections Linda- I have a whole new list to listen to now. And I wanna write a rain themed Country song - You're gonna get me sacked!

Sherri from Southeastern Pennsylvania on June 27, 2012:

I know it's a cliche, but I especially love the country songs that feature the rain and at the same time include the the broken-down truck, the wife who left, and the dog who died. Nothing better for the blues than to listen to a few of these in a row and realize you don't have it all that bad after all.

Thanks for introducing me to some songs and artists I didn't know. Now I have more playback material for a blue day. :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 28, 2012:

Some tunes for those of you being affected by Tropical Storm Beryl. Orlando is having thunderstorms today from the outter bands and I'm loving it!

Barbara Purvis Hunter from Florida on March 31, 2012:


I really loved this hub about rain. And I learned about a new to me country singer Luke Bryan, he is really good.

A great job, and I can not wait for another one.

Your Hub Friend,


Jonathan McCloskey from Cinnaminson, New Jersey on March 31, 2012:

Never knew there were so many different songs about rain, and this is only country. Wonderful job.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on March 22, 2012:

Hi Old Albion, I'm glad you enjoyed both of my country music rain hubs. I had a lot of fun creating them. Country music has changed a lot over the years. We either adapt to the new tunes or keep on enjoying the old country. I enjoy all country:)

Graham Lee from Lancashire. England. on March 22, 2012:

Hi Sunshine 625. two great hubs. country music is a favourite of mine. Willie Nelson's 'blue eyes crying in the rain' is brilliant. I country music has certainly changed in the last few years. 'rainy night in georgia' is another favourite. voted up.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on August 11, 2011:

Great song choices Jaye!!! Could never dislike you :)))

Jaye Denman from Deep South, USA on August 11, 2011:

I'm not a country music fan (you're going to hate me), but there are a lot of old pop songs with "rain" in the title, too. I can think of two right now: "Singing in the Rain" is a real oldie, plus "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head" from way back in the '60s, but I imagine some country music singer has re-recorded the latter by now....That usually happens with good pop tunes. They cross over!


Mentalist acer from A Voice in your Mind! on August 10, 2011:

For me,rain tend to wash away the pain.;)

Another inventive and interestingly awesome hub Linda.;)
