Summer is here! Let's talk about the best Country Music songs for the summer
OGrSummer is finally upon us and what better way to spend it then chilling out in the sun with some country music on.
Here is my top 20:
1. Toes- Zac Brown Band
I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand Life is good today. Life is good today.
Zac Brown Band have a classic summer song with this one. If this isn’t on your playlists then you’re doing it wrong.
2. Day drinking - Little Big Town
Don’t want to wait ‘til the sun’s sinking We could be feeling alright
Let’s be honest Little Big Town has so many great songs for a sunny day outside (boondocks, pontoon -to name a few) but this one has to be a winner. Even listening to it behind a desk takes you to another place.
3. Honey I’m good - Andy Grammar
I could have another but I probably should not I got somebody at home And if I stay I might not leave alone
if you try to tell me this song dosent get your boots taping and your hands clapping well then you’re lying.
4. It’s Five O'Clock Somewhere - Alan Jackson
What time zone am on? What country am I in? It doesn’t matter, it’s five o'clock somewhere.
because who dosent say this when they’re on holiday!
5. Ticks - Brad Paisley
You never know where one might be There’s lots of places that are hard to reach I gotcha.
6. Cruise - Florida Georgia Line
She was sippin’ on Southern and singin’ Marshall Tucker We were falling in love in the sweet heart of summer
BABY YOU A SONG YOU MAKE ME WANNA ROLL MY WINDOWS DOWN AND CRUISE
7. Friends in low places - Garth Brooks.
Blame it all on my roots I showed up in boots
Let’s just agree this should be on every playlist ever? Ok?!
8. 80s Mercedes- Maren Morris
Feel like a hard-to-get starlet when I’m driving Turning every head, hell I ain’t even trying Got them Ray-Ban shades pretty in pink
9. Drink in my hand - Eric Church
When you drive me home take the long way around You be my Lois Lane I’ll be your Super Man, All you got to do is put a drink in my hand
So what if you have work - its summer - enjoy!
10. One way Ticket - Carrie Underwood
Sun’s shining bright and it’s meant for us Life is like a ride on a party bus
11. Crash and Burn - Thomas Rhett
I think love is overrated But I don’t like throwing it away
12. 21 Summer - Brothers Osborne
I hear that song, the one we sang all summer long and even though its been so long it brings me back, right back to you
Will this be the song in years to come you listen to and then think back to a summer love?
13. Man I feel like a woman - Shania Twain
The best thing about being a woman Is the prerogative to have a little fun
14. Wagon Wheel - Darius Rucker
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now
Hey, hey momma rock me!
15. Drunk on a Plane - Dierks Bentley
On my way home I’ll bump this seat right up to first class So I can drink that cheap champagne out of a real glass
Who dosent think about singing this on the plane?
16. Lemon Drop - Pistol Annies
So I play my hopes and play my dreams Just like two coins in a slot machine Sing “Glory, Hallelujah” if everything works out fine
17. Red Fire Night - Green River Ordinance
There’s a magic when that west wind blows Gets even better with a little George Jones
Perfect for your summer bonfires
18. Famous in a Small Town - Miranda Lambert
Whether you’re late for church or you’re stuck in jail Hey words gonna get around Everybody dies famous in a small town
If you’re from a small town where everyone knows each other you can relate to this song. So when you’re back home for the summer turn it up and enjoy!
19. Barefoot Blue Jean Night - Jake Owen
Shot me in love like a shootin’ star So, I grabbed a beer and an old guitar Then we sat around till the break of dawn Howlin’ and singin’ our favorite song
A microstory by OHSOWHY (@ohsowhy) in regards of hearing this song:
“Your sonic fairytales gets under your skin through that small opening under you fingernails and spread images through your body making the belly button jealous of the scar on your knee and that fox is your voice and that scar is that fox and it’s all imagination, but you can’t be sure until you see the last note float to the sky. And when it’s gone, you look at that scar and remember the fox, or the voice, or the time you spent in the woods running between the uprooted trees, imagining what it would feel like getting trapped under one of them, like the smallest hare caught by the fire red fox flash.”
