Completing truck-driving school puts you on the path toward an exciting and successful career. Before you finish your schooling, you should start compiling playlists that can accompany you on your long drives once you get your commercial truck driver license. Here are some selections to get you started:
“Life Is a Highway”
Try to fill your playlist with a lot of high-energy songs that keep you awake and help you focus on the road. “Life Is a Highway” is the perfect example of a road-friendly song that will make the long hours on the highway much more enjoyable. Whether you want to go old school with the original Tom Cochrane version or make it a little bit country with Rascal Flatt’s rendition, this song is sure to keep you feeling energized while you drive.
“On the Road Again”
Willie Nelson’s classic “On the Road Again” should definitely find a spot on your playlist. If you have a passion for your career as a truck driver, this song will speak to your soul. With lyrics like “just can’t wait to get on the road again,” you will be excited to get behind the wheel and start on another long journey.
“Truck Driver’s Prayer”
This ode to the truck driver is another country classic that can help you get through a long shift of driving across the country. Red Sovine’s song pays homage to truck drivers by saying things like “If everyone would drive like you guys do/ there would be a lot less accidents and deaths on the highway.”
“Truck Driver’s Blues”
Merle Haggard sings it well in his song “Truck Driver’s Blues.” With lyrics like “keep them wheels a rollin’/I ain’t got no time to lose,” he perfectly embodies the feeling of driving a truck when you are ready to find a rest stop for the night.
