"Put Some Drive in Your Country" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Travis Tritt. It was released in September 1990 as the fourth single from his debut album Country Club.
The song is an up-tempo country rock song in which Tritt proclaims his influences, paying homage to Roy Acuff, George Jones, Hank Williams, Jr. and Waylon Jennings as well. In the song, Tritt defines his style singing "I made myself a promise, when I was just a kid: I'd mix Southern rock and country, and that's just what I did".
Stephen Thomas Erlewine by Allmusic said that "[the song], which had a clear rock & roll influence, stalled at #28, since radio programmers were reluctant to feature such blatantly rock-derived music".
