The road trip is an American tradition. Whether you’ve got the fam in the minivan or your besties on board for a rite-of-passage trek into the sunset, you need a soundtrack – and nothing fits the bill like country music.
Suitable for both the open road and memory lane, country also has upbeat, catchy lyrics you just can’t help but sing along with. At Mullinax Ford, we’re fond of this uniquely American style of music. We hope you are too. So here are some tunes to cue up for your next asphalt adventure. Turn it up!
Take me Home, Country Roads – John Denver
Generations have grown up singing this classic that came out in 1971.
It’s a Great Day to be Alive – Travis Tritt
The sun’s still shining and we’re doing all right.
Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show or Darius Rucker
Pick a version and rock me, Mama, like a southbound train.
Dirt Road Anthem – Jason Aldean
Country meets rap when you load the truck up hit the dirt road. Jump the barbwire spread the word.
Life is a Highway – Rascal Flatts
You know you wanna ride it all night long. If the chorus doesn’t get your blood pumping, you don’t have a pulse.
I’ve Been Everywhere – Johnny Cash (cover)
Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota – come on, you gotta keep up!
Amarillo by Morning – George Strait
Ease off the accelerator with this wistful rodeo rider’s lament.
Cruise – Florida Georgia Line
Boy meets girl who makes him want to… roll his window down and ride the back roads. Why – what were you thinking?
American Kids – Kenny Chesney
Consider it a generational anthem. Jesus save me, blue jean baby, born in the USA. A little messed up but we’re all alright.
Nothing on but the Radio – Gary Allan
A catchy little love song for the driver, after dark when the passengers are asleep.
