    Top Trucking Songs For The Next Time You Hit The Road

    When you’re out on the road there are few things better than having some good music along for the ride. Even if your usual go-to is rock, hip-hop, or country, most truckers out there love a good truckin’ tune about the open road and putting some miles behind them. Truck driving songs seem to take on a life of their own and tell a tale which is something you don’t see as much in music these days. They bring out that feeling of freedom, of adventure, and even what it’s like to get back home. That desire to get out there and find freedom and adventure is a big reason why a lot of people want to drive trucks in the first place.

    Whether you are just going to head out on a road trip with friends or family, or you are about to make your next run let New England Tractor Trailer Training School be your DJ for the next 35 minutes. With so many great trucking songs out there it was’t easy to narrow the list down to just 10, so sit back, relax and enjoy our choices for the Top 10 Trucking Songs of all time.

      I wrote a trucking song that is true to life. It tells a story. I have over a million miles under my belt driving truck and know a grate song when I hear it. I wrote it years ago before I went to Iraq. It country western and it’s grate. IM not narcissistic, just know my music. Its what a song should be.
