This week, the Country Universe staff will be revealing its Top 40 Singles of 2008. Country music has always been a singles format, a trend still prevalent today, as evidenced by the widespread popularity of country radio. The formats have changed, with 78s replaced by 45s, and then by cassette and CD singles, until we reached the current standard of digital downloads. But the concept of the single has remained the standard.
With our picks taking center stage this week, tonight we ask you:
What were your favorite singles of 2008? Was this a good year for country music singles?
