After the popular success of last year's "Kick-Ass Country Music" article (if you haven't read it, go check it out here ) I decided to update y'all with the latest and greatest songs for 2020.
With all that's going on in the world today from the coronavirus to these crazy politics, we've long awaited the feeling of summer. For some of us, the stress of what's going on may even overshadow this feeling as we worry about what the next chapter of our lives will look like.
No matter what stage of this crazy life we are all in, whether we have the opportunity to truly live our best summer lives or are stuck in the monotony of stress, here are 18 songs that will give you that instant summer serotonin we all hope for.
I'm talking that summer wind through your hair, sunshine, and blue skies kind of happy.
If you're driving home from a long day at work and need to roll your windows down and blast the music, feel free.
If you're sitting by a lake in the sun, turn it up. Soak it in. It's going to be a long hot summer ladies and gentlemen.
