Bruce Springsteen Tops Drivers’ Pick for Road Trip Vocalist
Since it’s all about the journey and not the destination, road trips are nothing without a good soundtrack. And according to a national survey conducted by IMR Inc. of 25,000 drivers, the top two singers you need to serenade you as you ready your vehicle for an epic road trip getaway are rock legend Bruce Springsteen and country music favorite Keith Urban.

Springsteen earned 24% of the vote while Urban earned 16.4 percent. Very close behind with 16.1 percent of the vote was Bruno Mars while Jimmy Buffet claimed 15.7 percent. Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé earned 11.5 percent, 8.6 percent, and 7.7 percent, respectively.
“With April being National Car Care Month, we thought it would be a fun idea to find out which musicians car owners like to listen to when getting ready for a road trip,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “It was no surprise that Bruce Springsteen, the guy who wrote ‘Cadillac Ranch’ and ‘Pink Cadillac,’ would be the top choice. However, as with cars, people like a wide variety of music, as evidenced by Keith Urban finishing second and Bruno Mars third in our survey.”
The Car Care Council commissioned the survey, and survey respondents raged in age from 18 to 65.

“We want to thank IMR Inc. for asking this question as part of its quarterly consumer auto maintenance study,” said White. “We are always looking for fun ways to help draw attention to National Car Care Month and the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair.”
