It was hard, but I sifted through a bunch of country songs I’ve played over my last 20 years here at K-Frog, to compile a list of my favorite country Songs of Summer. All of these songs in some way, shape or form, bring back some pretty good summer memories for me, and they definitely rock! What are YOUR favorite country songs that remind you of summertime?
1) Luke Bryan – “Country Girl Shake It For Me” – I mean, really? Do we even need an explanation for this song? It reeks of F-U-N!
2) Kenny Chesney – “Young” – As soon as I hear this song, I immediately flashback to the days of my youth. Summer breaks, no school, and time with good friends.
3) Zac Brown Band – “Toes” – Who doesn’t love a song about sticking their toes in the sand during the summer?
4) Keith Urban – “Days Go By” – This song just flat out jams. I imagine cruising down the 91 Frogway with the windows open for the opening crescendo of the song. Turn this one up!
5) Rodney Atkins – “It’s America” – To me, one of the highlights of summer is the 4th of July. This rocker from Rodney Atkins paints a great picture of everything good in the U.S. of A!
6) Toby Keith – “American Ride” – Put your summer hammer down for this kickin’ tune from Toby Keith! Anyone up for cruisin’ PCH on a Harley this summer?
7) Little Big Town – “Pontoon” – Ah yes! Summers on a pontoon at Big Bear Lake, Lake Havasu or your favorite body of water, require a listen to this gem from Little Big Town!
8) Dierks Bentley – “Am I The Only One” – This song is so hot, I need sunscreen to listen to it. Love the Dierks!
9) Jason Aldean – “My Kinda Party” – Bikinis, beautiful women, and beautiful men. This is one summer party I’d RSVP for.
10) Randy Houser – “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” – This new cut from Randy Houser’s new album, How Country Feels, is my pick for THE summer song of 2013! Just take a listen and let it take you to your destination this summer!
