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.

Ready to sample and see the playlist spelled out?

  • "Kiss A Girl" by Keith Urban
  • "It Ain't Me Babe" by Joaquin Phoenix & Reese Witherspoon
  • "Cowboy Casanova" by Carrie Underwood
  • "White Liar" by Miranda Lambert
  • "Alright" by Darius Rucker
  • "You Belong With Me" by Taylor Swift
  • "Sideways" by Dierks Bentley
  • "Wide Open Spaces" by The Dixie Chicks
  • "Honky Tonk Man" by Dwight Yoakam
  • "Put Yourself In My Shoes" by Clint Black
  • "Wishful Thinking" by The Ditty Bops
  • "Undo It" by Carrie Underwood
  • "I Run To You" by Lady Antebellum

This is great! I actually have been into country swing dancing for the last year and I have never been more fit in my life! I love it and the music does really get you going!! I will have to try to listen to country music now when I am at the gym too, not just the bar's dancefloor!
