Top 10 Inspiring Country Songs

Set this Circus Down
Music is inspiring and a way to relax and seek freedom from your mind. I have these top 10 inspiring country songs on a playlist to listen to when I am getting ready in the morning, at work, in my truck and anytime I feel like turning on some music.  I listen to music on a constant basis, as it is one of relaxation strategies, as I live a successful life with bipolar, addiction and a generalized anxiety disorder.

Create a playlist on your phone or make a CD with songs you like and relate to. From personal experience and research on music therapy, it helps me get through some days and to focus on days my mind has racing thoughts. 

Have a Blessed Day!

1) Justin Moore - "One Dirt Road" 
"I know where I'm going
When I'm done here on this earth
God's building me a mansion
Where none of us will hurt
I'll see ol' St. Peter
Swing wide those pearly gates
I don't mean to sound ungrateful
But God I hope and pray"

2) Rascal Flatts - "Bless the Broken Road"
"But you just smile and take my hand. You've been there, you understand. It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true."

3) Brad Paisely - "When I Get Where I'm Going"
"Yeah when I get where I'm going, there'll be only happy tears. I will shed the sins and struggles, I have carried all these years. And I'll leave my heart wide open. I will love and have no fear. Yeah when I get where I'm going, don't cry for me down here." 

4) Craig Morgan - "Ordinary Angels"
"We all got a little superman, ready to take a flight, and save a life, oh save a life. Take a look around and you'll see. Ordinary angels." 

5) George Strait - "I Saw God Today"
"His fingerprints are everywhere. I just slowed down to stop and stare. Opened my eyes and man I swear, I saw God today." 

6) Rodney Atkins - "If You're Going Through Hell"
"If you're going through hell. Keep on going, don't slow down, if you're scared, don't show it. You might get out before the devil even knows you're there." 

7) Travis Tritt - "It's a Great Day to be Alive"
"And it's a great day to be alive. I know the sun's still shinin when I close my eyes. There's some hard times in the neigborhood, but why can't every day be just this good?" 

8) Kid Rock - "Only God Knows Why"
"I've been sittin here
Tryin to find myself
I get behind myself
I need to rewind myself
Lookin for the payback
Listen for the playback
They say that every man bleeds just like me
And I feel like number one
Yet I'm last in line
I watch my youngest son
And it helps to pass the time
I take too many pills it helps to ease the pain
I made a couple of dollar bills, but still I feel the same
Everybody knows my name
They say it way out loud
A lot of folks fuck with me
It's hard to hang out in crowds
I guess that's the price you pay
To be some big shot like I am
Out strecthed hands and one night stands
Still I can't find love"

9) Tim McGraw - "Set This Circus Down"
"Sometimes I lie awake just thinking 
Of all the horizons we have seen 
And as another day is sinking 
I thank God you're here with me 
'Cause baby you're the one laughing with me when the sun goes down 
Living on faith and holding on tight to the love we found" 

10) Tim McGraw - "Live Like You Were Dying"
"I went sky divin', 
I went rocky mountain climbin', 
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull name Fumanchu.
And I loved deeper, 
And I spoke sweeter, 
And I gave forgiveness I've been denying, 
And he said someday I hope you get the chance,
To live like you were dyin"
