List Rules Upvote your favorite country songs about travel.

If there’s one genre that has a monopoly on great road trip songs, it’s country music. The songs listed here are all excellent examples of country songs about traveling, offering up tales that pass through thousands of towns all over America and beyond.

Some of the greatest country songs about travel involve four wheels and a lot of asphalt. Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” certainly deserves a spot on this list, as does Johnny Cash’s “I’ve Been Everywhere” and Roger Miller’s “King of the Road.” More modern era country road trip travel songs include Rascal Flatt’s cover of Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway” and Zac Brown Band’s “Highway 20 Ride.” And of course, Kacey Musgraves’s “My Home” is perhaps the ultimate country travel song – her home is her RV.

In case you were wondering, yes, occasionally country music artists sing country travel songs about flying. Dierks Bentley indulges in a bit too much alcohol and gets “Drunk on a Plane,” and John Denver is “Leaving on a Jet Plane” with no idea when he’ll return.

Enjoy these great country songs about traveling, and be sure to vote for your favorites.
