Few '90s country hitmakers were as easy to enjoy as singer and songwriter Hal Ketchum, who died on Tuesday (Nov. 24) at the age of 67. While "Small Town Saturday Night" steals the bulk of his 21st century country airplay, the New York-born country singer was a dynamic vocalist with a broad catalog of hit songs and satisfying deep cuts.

"Past the Point of Rescue" is essential listening, but so too is his final 1990s charting song, a cover of Todd Rundgren's "I Saw the Light." We included both on this list of Ketchum's best songs and biggest hits. The list focuses on his charting songs, courtesy of Billboard's records of his country airplay. He was enjoying regional success in Texas prior to signing with Curb Records for his 1991 Past the Point of Rescue album, however.

A decade in the Austin, Texas, area produced songs for the Threadbare Alibis album and sharpened his songwriting and stage acumen to make him a true country force once he landed in Nashville. In total, Ketchum's smooth, everyman voice was captured on 11 studio albums, including nine on Curb and his final 2014 independent album, I'm the Troubadour. Songs like "Stay Forever," "Sure Love" and "Mama Knows the Highway" were hits from his time on Curb, and each is included on this list of Hal Ketchum's best songs.

Ketchum toured until early 2019, when his wife revealed that his dementia had progressed to the point where it was no longer possible for him to perform. This was the second time he'd retired, having done so in 2008 before returning to the studio and stage in 2014. Ketchum's battle with Alzheimer's/dementia was a quiet one until he publicly announced he was finally done in 2019. "Because of his love for his fans, he continued performing as long as it was possible," wife Andrea wrote last year.
