There’s nothing quite like a road trip on a sunny day. Whether you fill up with iTunes downloads or crank up the radio, singing along to great road trip music while laughing with friends and family makes for fun times.

If you’re a country girl or good ol’ country boy there are many songs–some old, some newer–that will help you rock your road trip no matter how many miles you have up ahead.
