Wyoming Arts Council


Hours driving across vast plains must be accompanied by some seriously engaging tunes and this annual playlist offers summer road trippers the best soundtrack for their Wyoming adventures.

The Wyoming Arts Council is pleased to announce the 2023 Wyoming Road Trip Playlist. Listen to the playlist on Spotify now. The musical talent of the Cowboy State provides the perfect soundtrack for any adventure, especially those that require long drives across the high plains or through mountain passes. 

Songs were selected by Jami Duffy, the Executive Director of Youth on Record and Co-Manager of the Underground Music Showcase in Denver, CO.  The Wyoming Road Trip Playlist is an annual part of the Arts Council’s Wyoming Independent Music Initiative (WIMI), working to build a robust music scene in Wyoming
