The Best Songs About Ohio

The other day I was listening to Damien Jurado’s “Ohio” and I realized that I miss my home state. What better way to remember my home than compile a list of my favorite songs about Ohio? The list also had contributions from Matt, Sean and Shiloh. Hope you enjoy, and learn something about Ohio as well.

1. Damien Jurado – “Ohio”

2. Sun Kil Moon – “Carry Me Ohio”

3. The National – “Bloodbuzz Ohio”

4. Hem – Cincinnati Traveler

5. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – “Ohio”

6. Gillian Welch – “Look at Miss Ohio”

7. Over The Rhine – “Ohio”

8. The Low Anthem – “To Ohio”

9. Laura Veirs – “Ohio Clouds”

10. Kid Cudi – “Cleveland Is The Reason”
