There’s something about country music and the baseball diamond that strike a chord together.

Check out what we think are the top country walk-up songs here.
1. “Homegrown” - Zac Brown Band
Something about that familiar feeling that this song gives for the home team and centers the crowd on America’s favorite pastime Zac Brown Band does this frequently making this a close one with their other chart topper, “Chicken Fried."

This one brings us back to a young Derek Jeter that had only been a Yankee for 10 years, what we know now as halfway through his brilliant career.
3. “When It Rains It Pours” - Luke Combs
Combs knows how to write the thoughts of the losing team or when that call to the bullpen has been one too many times in a game.

The king of relaxation and summertime knows how to let the music and the good times roll by watching a game or two of his own.
8. “Days Go By” - Keith Urban
Keith Urban sings words that imprint on an athlete’s heart to soak it all up, every at bat, every pitch, every experience.
