Tall country men rule the Top 40 country song countdown for December 2017. Blake Shelton, Brett Young and Luke Bryan all fare well, but it's another legendary entertainer who takes the No. 1 spot.

The month's best song goes to Garth Brooks, who will likely reach No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart for the first time in over a decade. It's true, "More Than a Memory" peaked in 2007 and then he went through a mini-drought that was elongated by his retirement. Country music's Entertainer of the Year has returned, however, with stars like Shelton, Young, Keith Urban and Walker Hayes right behind him.

Find collaborations on this month's Top 40 list as Florida Georgia Line teamed up with newcomer Morgan Wallen, and Tim McGraw paired with his wife Faith Hill once again. A new song from Taylor Swift cracks the Top 40 — yep, the pop superstar is back on country radio!

Go ahead, find your song and then let us know where we got it right and wrong.

The list of Top 40 Country Songs of December 2017 is compiled from Billboard chart data and sales figures, in addition to staff opinion and reader feedback.
