Fifteen Best Country Road Trip Songs

By

I don't know about you, but each time I get in my car, no matter if I'm just driving a few miles to the local grocery store, or 100 miles to fly off on a vacation, I have to have my country music with me. I've compiled a list of some of my favorite songs to create the ultimate road trip playlist.

"Amarillo by Morning" - George Strait

George Strait - 22 More Hits
MCA Nashville
What would a drive in the car be like without something from the King George? This is another one that I just "have" to sing along with.

"Anything But Mine" - Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney - 'When The Sun Goes Down'
BNA Nashville
Does Kenny Chesney know how to put out a bad song? Nope, not in my opinion. Most of these songs are up-tempo, but this one is a little slower, and very pretty.
Download/Purchase

"Bye Bye" - Jo Dee Messina

Jo Dee Messina Greatest Hits
Curb Records
Jo Dee Messina has done her share of spunky songs, and this one is one of the best. It's a perfect song for when you're not feeling happy with your significant other, and feel like saying "Bye Bye."
Download/Purchase

"Days Go By" - Keith Urban

Keith Urban - 'Be Here'
Capitol Nashville
This is another one that just makes you wanna get in the car and turn it up, and put your "hand out the window in the wind."
Download/Purchase

"Everywhere" - Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw - 'Everywhere'
Curb Records
This is probably my very favorite Tim McGraw song ever. I love the name dropping of cities. It's just got a really great "outdoor" feeling to it, and it's one I turn up every time I hear it on the radio.
Download/Purchase

"Feels Like Today" - Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts - 'Feels Like Today'
Lyric Street Records
Rascal Flatts are known for their wonderful harmonies, and I especially love the chorus of "Feels Like Today."
Download/Purchase

"I May Hate Myself in the Morning" - Lee Ann Womack

Lee Ann Womack - There's More Where That
MCA Nashville
This is one of Lee Ann Womack's very best songs. It's from her CMA Award-winning album There's More Where That Came From. Another slower song, but still a great song to listen to while driving.
Download/Purchase

"Neon Moon" - Brooks & Dunn

Brooks & Dunn - 'Brand New Man'
Arista Nashville
This is another song that is rooted in a concert experience. I can't hear this song without thinking about Ronnie Dunn's "Neon Moon" glow in the dark guitar. This has to be one of my all-time favorite Brooks & Dunn songs.
Download/Purchase

"Nothin' On But the Radio" - Gary Allan

Gary Allan - 'See If I Care'
MCA Nashville
Gary Allan can do happy and sad, but he excels at sexy, which is definitely what this song is. Hot! Hot! Hot! Love it!
Download/Purchase

"Nothin' to Lose" - Josh Gracin

Josh Gracin - Josh Gracin
Lyric Street Music
I may not be able to sing the words of this song as quickly as Josh Gracin does, but it's great fun to try to keep up with him.
