Music has a way of uniting us all.  There is power in it, and when we hear a song that we know and love, it often has the ability to transport us to another time and place. It's part of the magic of music, I mean a simple tune can mean so many different things to so many different people.

Of course, Montana is no stranger to music.  We have several wonderful venues, both large and small, across the state where everyone from national acts to local folks can play and sing their songs.

But what about songs written specifically about Montana and the people from here?  If you were to compile a list of the greatest song written about Montana, which songs would you include?

Let's take a look and listen to what very well may be the Top 5 greatest songs written about our beloved Montana.

The Ballad Of Wille and Millie

Written by Walkin' Jim Stoltz, this love song was created from a beautiful story. The song speaks of the love between two people who met at the old Columbia Gardens in Butte and their story that follows.

Home Is Where Montana Is

Written and performed by Bruce Anfinson Home Is Where Montana Is might be familiar, especially if you're a fan of the PBS show Backroads of Montana. The lyrics of the song are beautifully written, especially when it comes to the description of the Montana landscape.

Meet Me In Montana

Fans of 80's Country will no doubt remember the powerful duet between Dan Seals and Marie Osmond. The song has long been a favorite for many locals, as well as those not from Montana.

Wild Montana Skies

Written and performed by the late great John Denver, it's not surprising that Denver, who loved and often wrote about the outdoors and nature would write about Montana. The song is beautifully crafted and builds up to the point that you find yourself singing along by the end of it.

Livingston Saturday Night

Jimmy Buffet was asked to do some songs for the 70's movie Rancho Deluxe about a couple of cattle rustlers living in Livingston, Montana.  One of those songs is an upbeat country/rock song called Livingstone Saturday Night, which is all about having a good time in a small town in Montana.
