You can learn a lot about a state by the songs people sing about it. Except when it comes to Idaho. You learn nothing from these songs but that people pass through our state on their way to other states. Also, there is a surprising lack of potato references about Idaho.

Here we go though in no particular order and with no guarantee that the songs are any good. And with the Skynyrd song it's a stretch but he mentions Boise, Idaho in the first line. One highlight I hadn't heard before is the one below by the band Equaleyes.

Yeah - that last one by the Rednex is the same band that brought us Cotton Eyed Joe! Do you have any other songs about Idaho that you like?
