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


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

20. I’ve Been Everywhere - Johnny Cash

Need travel inspiration? Listen to this song.

(Darius Greene) “Vulpecula” 

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.”

I asked a group of various underworldly entities to close their eyes and think about their favorite moment in Hell. This is Florence. 

The details of her skin seem a bit lost once the images were uploaded online, best viewed large.
