You’ve got the candy stocked, the costumes planned, the pumpkins carved, but do you have your Halloween playlist planned? Get into the Halloween spirit with these five spooky country songs!


The Devil Went Down to Georgia

Charlie Daniels Band



The Charlie Daniels Band’s ‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia’ is a classic song for the night of fright. The song spent 14 weeks atop the Hot Country Singles chart when it was released in 1979. So, toss on some horns, grab a pitchfork and dance around the Jack-o-lantern to this tune!



Diggin’ Up Bones

Randy Travis



Randy may not be singing about going grave robbing in ‘Diggin’ Up Bones,’ but with lyrics like, “I’m digging up bones, exhuming things that’s better left alone,” we think this one makes a fine addition to any playlist dedicated to a holiday celebrated with skeletons.



Ghost Riders in the Sky

Johnny Cash



You can’t think about country music and ghosts without finding yourself singing Johnny Cash’s ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky.’ Ghost cowboys chasing the devil’s cattle across the sky sounds pretty spooky to us.



This Haunted House

Loretta Lynn



Not only is Loretta Lynn’s “This Haunted House” perfect for a Halloween playlist for obvious reasons, but The Queen of Country’s Tennessee home was actually investigated by The Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. Loretta claims she’s witnessed paranormal activity in her home. Spooky!



Ghost in this House

Alison Krauss



In keeping with the ghost theme, we finish up the list with Alison Krauss’ Ghost in This House.
