Arlington’s Spotify Playlist Heavy on Country, Indie Music

Spotify logo

Arlingtonians have an inordinate love of country and indie music, at least according to the most-played songs on Spotify’s “Sounds of Arlington VA” playlist.

Spotify, a streaming music service, released playlists of the most popular songs in various cities “relative to the rest of the world.” In other words, song that are distinctively popular in Arlington but less so elsewhere in the world.

While Arlington is a county, it was one of the “cities” to get its own playlist.

The top five songs on Arlington’s list are

  • “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” by Keith Urban
  • “The Fool” by Ryn Weaver
  • “How Bad We Need Each Other” by Marc Scibilia
  • “Dime Store Cowgirl” by Kacey Musgraves
  • “Roses” by the Chainsmokers

Country music is highly represented on the playlist. Country singers to make the list include Kacey Musgraves, Luke Bryan, newcomer Canaan Smith, Dierks Bentley, Hunter Hayes, Rascal Flatts and Miranda Lambert.

While there are exceptions, especially in the form of songs from Kacey Musgrave, most of the country songs on the list can be heard on country radio stations or iTunes’ Top 100 Downloads.

Outside of country music, the playlist also heavily features indie bands and jumps between different genres with songs from Ryn Weaver, Halsey, Vance Joy and John Newman, among others.
