Workouts are even better when you add these country music hits to your playlist.

You ready for some country music cardio in your workout?

I know, I know… you’re tired of hearing the “It’s a New Year, New You!” mantra every January. But, it IS a new year, and if you’re going to be hitting the workouts a little bit harder to start that new year, I’ve got the perfect country music cardio soundtrack for you!

Cardio is always more fun when Luke Bryan is encouraging you to “Shake It” for him in your headphones!

Music and workouts go really well together. Heck, Jane Fonda made an entire career out of it.

But you can’t just add any music to your workout and expect results. You have to be purposeful with your selections. You don’t want Garth Brooks’ “The Dance” blasting into your ears when you hit the incline. And you certainly don’t want George Jones’ “He Stopped Loving Her Today” to come on when you’re in the middle of your 3-mile run.

There’s a delicate balance at play here. Power songs like “Drunk (And I Don’t Want to Go Home)” by Elle King and Miranda Lambert is a great one to get you started.

So, let’s take a look at some of the BEST songs to add to your country music cardio playlist.
