Country artists are on the road a lot! While touring, many acts just want to make their tour bus or time on the road feel like home, and they do that by bringing a few special things with them.

On the red carpet at the 2014 CMT Music Awards, Taste of Country Nights host Sam Alex stopped a few stars and asked them," What is the one thing you have to have on the road with you?"

Some of their answers may surprise you.

Dustin Lynch, for one, likes to keep it simple. He just needs three things and he's good to go. Thomas Rhett, on the other hand, brings his favorite boredom buster to help pass the time (Hint: it's sports equipment).

A few country artists made it known that they can't leave home without their favorite furry friends -- and we don't blame them! Food, beer and a few other odds and ends also make the list. Check out the video to find out who needs what!
