AT Tunes: Vol 1

Being a huge music fan I’ve decided to start building some playlists specifically for my upcoming AT Thru hike. Having hiked the Long Trail without any music, I have looked back and wished I had some tunes a certain points when pumping out long days of hiking.

For my first playlist I’ve decided to build a list with songs that have something to do with each state. It is certainly a hodgepodge of different songs. The playlist consists of hip/hop, country, rock, Alternative, parody, and even soul. Being from New Hampshire I had to choose a song that is not only from a local group, but is solely about everything New Hampshire!

AT Tunes: Vol 1

Georgie On My Mind – Ray Charles

Carolina In My Mind – James Taylor

Tennessee Love – Yelawolf

Meet Virginia – Train

West Virginia – Bingotherapy

Maryland (feat. Pro’verb) – Lyriciss

Pennsylvania – Bloodhoung Gang

Jersey – Naive New Beaters

Empire State of Mind (feat. Alicia Keys) – JAY Z

Kylie from Connecticut – Ben Folds

I’m Shipping Up to Boston – Dropkick Murphys

Vermont – The Districts

Granite State of Mind – The SSP

Portland, Maine – Time McGraw


I hope this encourages others to share some of their playlists or music that they will be bringing along with them.

Expect more to come as more music planning is underway!
