A Playlist of Country Music For Workouts

Gone Country . . . For My Workout

Rap, techno, and pop hits are often at the top of most gym playlists as they tend to provide a good base beat and rhythm to kick your cardio into high gear. But after watching the Country Music Awards last night, I've gone country. While I usually rely on one of the aforementioned music classifications to get me going, I may be leaning on Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker (yes, that's Hootie!), Taylor Swift, and Dierks Bentley to get the job done on occasion, and I'm thinking you should give 'em a try, too. And remember, you don't have to have a twang to enjoy some good ol' country music.
