"Mountains" is a song written by Richie McDonald, Larry Boone and Paul Nelson, and recorded by American country music band Lonestar. It was released in June 2006 as the lead-off single and title track from their album of the same name. The song is the band's final Top Ten hit, reaching a peak of number 10 on the U.S. country singles charts in late 2006.
"Mountains" is a mid-tempo in which the narrator cites two examples of people who overcome difficult situations in their lives. The first is a single mother who has to work two jobs to support her family, and the second is a man with crippled legs who runs a marathon despite the pain he feels. In both situations, the narrator uses mountains as a metaphor for the struggles each person faces.
