20 songs for your American road trip

american road trip music

Are you planning an epic road trip through the U S of A? There is only one thing that will make your adventure even better, a perfect playlist. I took a road trip with Ryan through New Mexico, Utah and Arizona and it was one of my most memorable vacations. The open road lay before us, and we ventured out into the American southwest eager to see one of the most picturesque landscapes of the U.S.

Music is such an inspiration for me and the perfect song(s) can really highlight the emotions you have when visiting a location. Before we left, I carefully selected songs for a playlist that gave me a sense of being free on the open road. Its a mix of some well-known oldies, country and a few of my personal favorites. When I am on a long drive, my thoughts get pretty deep and I do a bit of soul searching. So some of these tunes are a bit slow but I feel they are perfect for some inspiration out on the road.

Hope you enjoy these tunes on your next road trip and I'm sure they will make your drive across America even more memorable!
