Tractor songs could be their own sub-genre of country music. Our love of the land is what legitimizes us as country fans, so it’s no wonder that Kenny Chesney became a superstar with one song about how his lady was attracted to his tractor. While the Tennessee native didn’t take sides on the John Deere versus International Harvester debate, the genre surely has and the loser might be green with envy.
