This year’s batch of country ‘summer songs’ have already started to roll out with Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer and Zac Brown Band’s Jump Right In!

I love this time of year as a country music fan. We’ve nearly made our way through the rain and cold of an Alabama winter (mostly rain) and we’re now dreaming of bare feet, water, sunburns, stocked coolers and friends! We, as country music listeners, also get a built in soundtrack for our post-Spring celebrations. Songs like Jake Owen’s Barefoot Blue Jean Night, Alan Jackson’s Chattahoochee and Little Big Town's Pontoon are just a few of the examples of the songs I’m talking about. They’re songs that conjure up visions of hot days and cooler nights.

Here are a few I’d add to my list of ‘Best Summer Songs’…

What songs, every time they come on, make you crave the summer sun? Comment below and let me know what your favorites would be. I think that together we could probably come up with one heck of a top 10 list!
