Playlist for Dakota Storm

DS Playlist

Quite a few years ago I noticed that everyone had a playlist for the books they were writing. I never got into creating a playlist for my books because I listen to rap, country, oldies – you name it, I like it. In fact, there is a meme out there that says, “If you can’t go from country, to rap, to Hannah Montana – you can’t ride with me. <— That’s me. I still listen to boy bands.

Creating a list didn’t make much sense to me because it would have been all over the place. My new book, Dakota Storm, is nothing but country, and for this book I wanted a country list, and I wanted it to be ‘new country’ because these characters are young, but there are a few throwbacks in there, like Diamond Rio.

The one song that really cinched the two main characters, David and Misty, is the first song on the playlist, What Ifs by Kane Brown.

So here is my playlist for Dakota Storm. I listened to this list on Spotify while I wrote and edited the book:
