Michigan Themed Songs You Need To Listen To
You either love your hometown or you can't wait to get out of it. Either way, it still inspires you. Musicians are no different; they always pull from something they're passionate about. And a lot of artists like to show their hometown love every now and then. Kid Rock is a perfect example of that. If you're a Michigander, your love for Michigan runs deep. Yeah, sure, we complain about the winters and potholes, but that doesn't mean we don't love "The Mitten."
So, that got me thinking, how many songs have musicians written about Michigan? Turns out it's A LOT. If I listed all of them, we'd probably be here until the New Year. So I put together a list of some oldies but goodies, popular Michigan songs and hidden gems I didn't know existed. Check it out!
