Who doesn't love a road trip?

CBC Music wants you to explore the country coast to coast, one song at a time, thanks to the numerous musicians who have paid tribute to our cities, provinces, parks, small towns and waterways.

To help you visualize where you're going, CBC Music designer Samantha Smith has created this incredible song map of Canada below, and provides close-up illustrated map points in the gallery above.

"On the back of a cartoon coaster/ In the blue TV screen light/ I drew a map of Canada."
Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You.”
