These 8 Songs About Alaska Will Touch Your Soul Today

When you think of a musical state, I’m positive Alaska doesn’t come to mind. We’re more of a scenic state with an intriguing past rather than one steeped in musical history. Interestingly, most songs mentioning Alaska use the name of our state in the title rather than the rest of the song, and the ones that do mention Alaska in the song generally use it in a metaphorical sense refering to Alaska as a whimsical, far away place. These 8 songs will make you proud to be an Alaskan, we promise!

2. “To The Wild Country” by John Denver

3. “North To Alaska” by Johnny Horton

4. “When It’s Springtime In Alaska (It’s 40 Below)” by Johnny Horton

Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
