You're driving in your car. You turn on the radio. Whose music would you hope to hear coming over the airwaves?

According to a new poll conducted on behalf of the non-profit Car Care Council, Bruce Springsteen is the singer that most people want to listen to as they prepare to hit the highway on a road trip.

The automotive market research company IMR Inc. polled more than 25,000 people across the U.S. from the ages of 18 to 65, and 24 percent picked The Boss as the right artist to get them in the mood to go for a long drive.

In second place was country artist Keith Urban with 16.4 percent of the vote, while pop star Bruno Marsnabbed third place with 16.1 percent.

The poll was conducted in conjunction of National Car Care Month, which takes place and April and promotes vehicular safety by encouraging people to keep their automobiles in good working order through maintenance and repair.

"With April being National Car Care Month, we thought it would be a fun idea to find out which musicians car owners like to listen to when getting ready for a road trip," says Car Care Council executive Rich White. "It was no surprise that Bruce Springsteen, the guy who wrote 'Cadillac Ranch' and 'Pink Cadillac,' would be the top choice."

Singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett finished in fourth place in the tally, while Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Beyonce also earned votes. Visit CarCare.org for more information.

Here's the full results of the poll:

Bruce Springsteen -- 24.0 percent
Keith Urban -- 16.4 percent
Bruno Mars -- 16.1 percent
Jimmy Buffett -- 15.7 percent
Lady Gaga -- 11.5 percent
Taylor Swift -- 8.6 percent
Beyonce -- 7.7 percent
