"Alexa, play these songs on repeat."
I have recently been feeling out of place and feeling like I don't belong in the city which I now live. I have been missing my hometown more and more each day which is crazy to think about considering that I always dreamed of living in another city in another state.
Now that I'm three years into living hours away from my home, home, I have a busy life and schedule which means I can't make it back home as often as I should or want to. I have found that the best way for me to handle this is to have something that reminds me of home around me when I'm feeling like this.
One of my playlists are designed just for songs that remind me of home and I have spent hours perfecting the playlist to include only songs that remind me of home. Here are my favorite 13 country songs that remind me of home:
1. "Home And A Hometown" by Hannah Ellis
I always listen to this song when I'm missing being in surrounded by country life. I know that no matter how much I miss my hometown and living in the country, my home will always be in a city. Plus I use this song to explain that to other people who don't get it.
2. "Make Em Proud" by Luke Pell
When I miss home I listen to this to remind me that everyone in my support system back home are always cheering for me to succeed. I'm always reminded that I'm doing great things and that no matter what they are always there for me.
3. "Anything Like Me" by Adam Sanders
Sometimes I feel like I don't fit in with my life away from home and I don't feel like anyone gets me. I listen to this song to remind that there are people that get me and are like me back home.
4. "The Way I Talk" by Morgan Wallen
I have this song on repeat most of the time because I know that I say words differently and say phrases that none of my friends have ever heard of. I start to miss home even more when this happens and this song helps me feel more at home.
5. "Where I'm From" by Jason Michael Carroll
I have added to my playlist because something about this song feels familiar to me and comforts me when I'm missing home.
6. "I'm From The Country" by Tracy Byrd
A basic explanation of home home for me and makes me miss home less.
7. "Simple Town" by Walker Montgomery
This song is chalk full of songs that remind me of home and I can relate to so many things in this song.
8. "Small Town USA" by Justin Moore
I'm reminded of the slower-paced life that is lived back home and I feel a lot better when I'm overwhelmed with the faster-paced life that I'm now living.
9. "Something to Be Proud Of" by Montgomery Gentry
I'm reminded of stories passed down and memories made spent with family.
10. "Where I Come From" by Montgomery Gentry
Another basic explanation of home and I can relate so much which is why I listen to it.
11. "Farm Girl" by High Valley
12. "Backroad Song" by Granger Smith
I'm reminded of summer days and nights spent driving back roads and full of good memories with friends and family.
13. "You'll Always Find Your Way Back Home" by Hannah Montana
One of the best songs to round out the songs to listen to when you miss home. I feel so much better after listening to this when I miss home.
