Country music isn't always about sippin' sweet tea and driving pick up trucks. Some country singers' songs were considered too risque for the radio waves. From steamy music videos to provoking lyrics, these artists were placed on the naughty list for their tunes.

Merle Haggard, Rascal Flatts, Loretta Lynn, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Kitty Wells, Julianne Hough, Conway Twitty
There’s been a proliferation, recently, of country songs that can be summarized as “Why don’t we get drunk and screw?” I hope the fad passes quickly ... let’s have some murder ballads!
Toby Keith did a song a while back, “You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This”: the song itself was romantic and really sweet, but the video was filthy. I hate when they do that.
Completely agree. There’s no reason to do it and that’s not what Country music is about.
There’s nothing wrong with a little romantic passion, “I fell into a burning ring of fire ...,” but it should be understated instead of coarsely blatant, and everyone please keep their clothes on in public.
seriously, not one mention of David Allan Coe?
someone else knows of 18 x rated?
Of course, anything by Chinga Chavin.
I can remember that back in the ‘50s a song titled “A Back Street Affair” (can’t remember the singer) was banned on many radio stations because of the subject. No lyrics suggested anything but an extra-marital affair.
The video turns me off though. It starts out fine, but then she has to get OVERTLY sexual.
Why can't people be satisfied with just a tease of seduction? Why does it have to be so in your face.
I remember the flack Shania Twain was catching in her early days. The worst she did was bare her midriff.
For a woman of 48, she's still hot.
David Allen Coe! Some of his songs done today would land you in jail!
In his day, Jerry Reed did some raunchy stuff.
Shania Twain wiggled very provocatively ;-). And yes, she is holding up very well. She exercises, of course, and I believe I read that she’s a strict vegetarian.
“Just walk on by ... wait on the corner. I love you but we’re strangers when we me-eee-eeet ...”
Yep, there were so many good Country songs I can’t begin to remember them. For many years it’s all I listened to on the radio but now most of it is Pop music.
I remember some songs, BACK IN 1968, that were so “hot” you had to ask for them at the record store! This one I heard was very racist.

Have you ever been just drivin’ around, and ended up in the colored part of town? And you see an old-time wanderoo Jack with a great big T.V. antenna. Then you look out in the back, you can always see a Cadillac......
I’ll stop right here but I do remember the flip side was KAJUN KKK. And NO! I WILL NOT PROVIDE A LINK!
One of the greatest C&W...
But she did it fully clothed (except for her belly) and it was done with a little wink. I found it ... intriguing, but tasteful.
Kinky Friedman’s not on the list...
