Desert Tracks

Every song you need to ride off into the sunset

Hacienda Brothers, “Son of Saguaro

Heading Southwest has long been a dream set in the American spirit. And the Hacienda Brothers—with their guitars that saunter across a barren soundscape—set a tone for blazing trails through the mesquite.

Twila Paris, “Cry for the Desert”

Maybe it’s the bareness of existence, but something spiritual happens in the desert. With its eerie 80s-esque vocals, this track captures the moment when you feel your soul stripped as naked as the terrain.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, “Into the Great Wide Open”

We love planning a perfect road trip, but in our hearts, we want a wide-open life where we can be a “rebel without a clue.” So, yeah, Tom Petty gets us.

Santa Esmerelda, “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”

Life on the Border has a different rhythm—with Latin guitars strumming, rapid hand-clapping, and heartfelt singing. If you get swept away, don’t worry: We understand.

Johnny Cash, “I’ve Been Everywhere”

Have we seen a road with so much dust and sand? Oh, yes. Because, like Johnny Cash, we’ve been everywhere, man— traveling “every road in this here land.”
