Florida Georgia Line - Cruise

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PvebsWcpto Baby you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
Down a back road blowin’ stop signs through the middle
Every little farm town with you
In this brand new Chevy with a lift kit
It’d look a hell lot better with you up in it
So baby you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise

Kacey Musgraves - Space Cowboy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBxLq2oCqTU You can have your space, cowboy
I ain't gonna fence you in
Go on ride away, in your Silverado
Guess I'll see you 'round again
I know my place, and it ain't with you
Sunsets fade, and love does too
Yeah, we had our day in the sun
When a horse wants to run, there ain't no sense in closing the gate
You can have your space, cowboy

Willie Nelson - On the Road Again

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBN86y30Ufc Here we go, on the road again
Like a band of Gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world keep turnin' our way

Johnny Cash - I’ve Been Everywhere

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov4epAJRPMw I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
Crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Travel, I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere

Taylor Swift - Red

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zlot0i3Zykw Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street
Faster than the wind, passionate as sin ending so suddenly

Alabama - Dixieland Delight

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkYIrj03fso Rolling down a backwoods Tennessee bighway
One arm on the wheel
Holding my lover with the other
A sweet soft southern thrill
Worked hard all week
Got a little jingle
On a Tennessee Saturday night
Couldn't feel better
I'm together with my dixieland delight

George Strait - Amarillo By Morning

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtVeDaZxAXo Amarillo by mornin'
Up from San Antone
Everything that I got
Is just what I've got on
When that sun is high in that Texas sky
I'll be buckin' at the county fair
Amarillo by mornin'
Amarillo, I'll be there

Carrie Underwood - Before He Cheats

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaSy8yy-mr8 I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats

Jo Dee Messina - Heads Carolina, Tails California

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvLjJE7Bt88 We can load what we own in the back of a U-Haul van
Couple modern day Moses' searchin' for the promised land
We can go four hundred miles before we stop for gas
Hey, we'll drive for a day and then we'll take a look at the map

Diamond Rio - Meet in the Middle

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWKpCmPdGmM It was seven hundred fence posts from your place to ours
Neither one of us was old enough to drive a car
Sometimes it was raining, sometimes it would shine
We wore out that gravel road between your house and mine

Travis Tritt - It’s a Great Day To Be Alive

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4tSE2w53ts Well, I might go get me a new tattoo
Or take my old Harley for three day cruise
Might even grow me a fu manchu
And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining
When I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't every day be just this good

Reba McEntire - I’d Rather Ride Around With You

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_ETqzcEGzk I don't care where this road goes
No I don't wanna turn around
Let go of the wheel and feel the wind blow
Don't even think about slowin' down

Kenny Chesney - She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWu4aynBK7E She ain't into cars or pickup trucks
But if it runs like a deer, man her eyes light up

Tim McGraw - Everywhere

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTgTs3Ju9XA Maybe in
Drivin' 'cross the prairie
In Dallas, Texas
Isn't that where we
Always said we would
Like to try
Never did
So maybe that's why you're on
Every highway
Just beyond the high-beams
Right beside me
In all of my sweet dreams
No matter where you choose to be
In my heart I'll always see you

Tanya Tucker - Black Water Bayou

In the back of Jimmy's car
Jimmy said, Marie you are so pretty
Well you oughta be a movie star?

Chris Stapleton - Traveller

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kBnFgLP8po I'm just a traveler on this earth
Sure as my heart's behind the pocket of my shirt
I'll just keep rolling till I'm in the dirt
'Cause I'm a traveler, oh, I'm a traveler
I couldn't tell you honey, I don't know
Where I'm going but I've got to go
'Cause every turn reveals some other road
And I'm a traveler, oh, I'm a traveler

George Strait - Carrying Your Love With Me

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0j5twurJ0M On a lonely highway, stuck out in the rain
Darling all I have to do is speak your name
The clouds rollback and the waters part
The sun starts shining in my heart for you
You're right there in everything I do

Dixie Chicks - Wide Open Spaces

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dom7VlltBUc She traveled this road as a child
Wide eyed and grinning, she never tired
But now she won't be coming back with the rest
If these are life's lessons, she'll take this test

Alan Jackson - Drive

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQe3DKDQRRs It was just an old plywood boat
A '75 Johnson with electric choke
A young boy two hands on the wheel
I can't replace the way it make me feel
And I would turn her sharp
And I would make her whine
He'd say, you can't beat the way an old wood boat rides
Just a little lake across the Alabama line
But I was king of the ocean
When Daddy let me drive

Keith Urban - Where the Blacktop Ends

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhsO7LnwyBI I'm lookin' down the barrel of Friday night
Ridin' on a river of freeway lights
Goodbye city I'm country bound
'Til Monday rolls around

John Denver - Take Me Home, Country Roads

Radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Drive by the moonlight
Talk about what the future might hold
Down that red dirt road

Tim McGraw - Something Like That

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYRFgWbalBE It was Labor Day weekend I was seventeen
I bought a Coke and some gasoline
And I drove out to the County Fair
And when I saw her for the first time
She was standing there in the ticket line
And it all started right then and there
Oh a sailor's sky made a perfect sunset
And that's a day I'll never forget
