Looking for a list of the best road songs.  I have a few, but would like to get a sampling from others.  All genres are fair game: Country, Oldies, Rock, etc...

"Life is a Highway" by Rascal Flatts is one of my favorites.

My top ten(in no particular order):

1.Guitar Town- Steve Earle
2.18 Miles From Memphis- Stray Cats
3.Ramblin Man-Waylon Jennings
4.Here I Am- Metallica cover
5.Six Days on The Road- David Allen Coe version
6.90MPH Down A Dead End Street- Hank Snow
7.18 Wheels & A Dozen Roses- Kathy Mattea
8.Run A Mile- BR549 (not exactly a road song, but it fits right in.)
9.Call Me The Breeze- Lynyrd Skynyrd
10.Foggy Mountain Breakdown-Flatt and Scruggs

Hummm, will I give my age away if I said Hank Snow, and "I've Been Everywhere?"?

Charlie Daniels with "Uneasy Rider."

C.W. McCall had a song out called "4 Wheel Drive."? oh, and of course "Convoy"

Merle Haggard with either "White Line Fever", or "Movin' On."

I think CMT had something on this.? Top 20 road songs???????

Twenty Songs won't get me to Florida.  Also, my RV doesn't have cable yet.

Help my fill up my MP3 Player!

No, but I'd bet your avatar and photograph would be pretty a pretty close match. ;D

Can't pull out of a campground without playing Willy Nelson, On The Road Again. 

Our taste leans heavy to bluegrass, and while not necessarily roadsongs, we have Bill Monroe on hand, Alison Krauss & Union Station f/ Jerry Douglas, then of course most all of Jerry D's CD's.  Cheiftains,  Down the Old Plank Road. 

We like fast moving upbeat stuff.  Choctaw hayride by Jerry D is one of my favorites!

Anything by The Band, or Average White Band.

In a classical mode, Handel's Water Music cannot be beat.  Mozart's 41st or Dvorak's 8th are fine also.

I had a good idea today. Usually I am able to ignore them and continue on, but this one seemed different.

Since you don't really seem to care what type of music
Since you need a lot of it
Since you are traveling to Florida

Why not do a little research, find out a few groups from each state, put that states band in a file, and listen to it as you travel through that state?
