Country Songs for Spooky Season: Part 2

As Halloween approaches, we’ve gathered a new and improved list of country songs just in time for the spooky season. Enjoy these songs that go great with the fall season.

1. “Bones” by Little Big Town

“Bones” appears on Little Big Town’s second studio album, The Road to Here. The song has an eerie vibe to it. It reminds listeners of “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac in its similarity to the western style of sound. The lyrics match the vibe: “You've got bones in your closet / You've got ghosts in your town / Ain’t no doubt, yeah, they're going to come out / They're waiting for the sun to go down.”

2. “The Legend of Wooley Swamp” by The Charlie Daniels Band

Throwing it back to the 1980s, The Charlie Daniels Band released the spooky tale of “The Legend of Wooley Swamp." If you’re looking for a great storytelling song to scare your trick-or-treaters off this Halloween, you won’t want to skip this one.

3. “Midnight in Montgomery” by Alan Jackson

Completely out of Jackson’s typical upbeat style, “Midnight in Montgomery” is a creepy, storytelling song. The lyrics create a cold feeling of being watched: “'Cause it's midnight in Montgomery / Just hear that whip-poor-will / See the stars light up the purple sky / Feel that lonesome chill / 'Cause when the wind is right / You'll hear his song / Smell whisky in the air / Midnight in Montgomery / He's always singin' there.”
