Personally, my favorite part of this nice weather is cruising anywhere and everywhere with all of my friends, blasting songs that make it feel more and more like summer. Here's a few to get your summer playlist started.
1. Barefoot Blue Jean Night by Jake Owen
This one is pretty old. Most of my friends know all of the words, even the ones who claim to "hate country music." It's a kind of summer-jam-meets-summer-love song, which is perfect to scream at the top of your lungs this summer.
2. Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band
This one is just a classic. No matter what time of year it is, I will happily jam to this song over and over again until I completely lose my voice. It is one of the first songs I ever learned when I was a kid, so it's an oldie but definitely a goodie.
3. Sixteen by Thomas Rhett
This one's more on the newer side, as it came out in 2017. It's all about growing up and talks about the big phases of life as you get older, so it's very relatable. It is also extremely catchy and just a mood-lightening song.
4. Drunk on You by Luke Bryan
This song is perfect to listen to all summer, every summer. I have loved it for years and years, and it never gets old. When summer is first starting off, listen to it as often as you can handle to get you excited and in the mood for warm weather and sunny days with your besties.
5. Toes by Zac Brown Band
Now that I think about it, pretty much any Zac Brown Band song is perfect for summer car rides. But this one in particular is about literally being on the beach. It is so upbeat and catchy, you'll find yourself singing it in your head all summer long.
