15 “Stay at Home” Songs, COVID-19 Edition

All over the United States people are being asked to stay at home because of the coronavirus pandemic. Folks are working from home, hanging out with family, or just taking stay-cations to slow the spread of the sickness. What’s kind of crazy is how many songs have addressed this idea long before sheltering in place was an order from state and federal officials. Check out the list below and if you have time, listen to these songs and comment below if you have any to add! Thanks for stopping by!
