Never have a dull ride again!
We all know and see those big rigs driving down the highway. You have to wonder where they’ve been, and when’s the last time they were home, how many times a day they get little kids doing the “pull your horn” arm motion and if it actually makes them smile and/or just annoys them…No? Just me? Not going to lie, I definitely encourage my own kids to do it!
Well, I would have to think that after driving day after day and night after night, they would have a pretty amazing playlist or some awesome podcasts to recommend. On a recent trip, I found myself struggling on the long drive and my mind was racing a million different ways. So I put on my playlist and realized that it was seriously slacking. When I saw an 18-wheeler pull up beside me, I saw this man jamming out and said to myself, “Self, let’s make us a trucker playlist”. Boom , that ‘s exactly what I did and I had to share them so you never experience a dull ride again 🙂 . This will FOR SURE keep your spirits high and energy up for any ride that comes your way. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Let’s drive in…..
If you don’t know, this song is famous for many reasons other than being the best song to play on Guitar Hero.
Roll On Eighteen Wheeler- Alabama
On the Road Again- Willie Nelson
East Bound and Down- Jerry Reed
Convoy- C. W. McCall
Brothers of the Highway- Tony Justice
Going to California- Led Zeppelin
We all know this is not only the State of Alabama’s anthem, it’s one the greatest jams of all time. We can all recognize this classic by that first guitar verse.
Let’s also not forget the unforgettable:
Simple Man- Lynyrd Skynyrd
Life Is A Highway- Rascal Flatts
Free Fallin – Tom Petty
I’m a Ramblin Man- Waylon Jennings
Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To be Cowboys- Waylon Jennings
Chattahoochee- Alan Jackson
I personally, love the original but I can’t be mad at the remake!
Wagon Wheel- Darius Rucker
Wolf Creek Pass- C. W. McCall
Diesel Driving Daddy- Aaron Watson
Like A Wrecking Ball- Eric Church
Livin On The Edge- Aerosmith
I Drive Your Truck- Lee Brice
We Rode In Trucks- Luke Bryan
Family Traditions- Hank Williams
I mean if this isn’t on your playlist, you clearly never lived. Every single person has heard of at least one of these epic songs and that speaks volumes on their influence.
Neon Moon- Brooke & Dunn
Born To Be Wild- Steppenwolf
Somethin bout a truck- Kipp Moore
Mud on the tires- Brad Paisley
Truck Yeah- Tim McGraw
I don’t know about you all but I feel like these guys came out of nowhere and all of sudden they made this remix featuring Nelly. Talk about a song to play on repeat. These guys nailed it!
I hope to have prevented you from having another dull ride on the road. To be honest, even if you are not a truck driver, you would love this playlist. Nothing better than mixing a little old school tunes with a little new age ones!
So to sum this up, say it with me….Take me down to the paradise city and cruise…Truck yeah! Boom
