When you’re in the gym getting your work out on, having some catchy songs playing definitely helps to keep you going. Most workout playlists include pop songs and anything on the Top 40 at the moment. However, just because those genres tend to be the most popular doesn’t mean country music isn’t getting any love. There are a ton of great workout songs some of your favorite country artists have created for us. And they’re just as likely to get you pumped up as you’re pumping iron at the gym. Besides, who doesn’t want to switch things up every now and then? If we need to work out multiple times a week we might as well change-up our music selection every now and then. We scoured the internet looking for some of the most popular country music songs for workout playlists and came up with a great group. And you may even be surprised at how much you enjoy these songs when you’re working out (if you’re not typically a country listener). We decided to round up 10 of the most popular based on quite a few lists floating around to compile a fun starting place for you to start your next workout with a little country twist.
