For years all my friends and family have relied on me for all their 'new music' needs. I can't count the amount of private messages I get asking the same question, "I need some new music, what songs do you suggest?" I never claim to be a genius but if there is one thing I know… it's good music. I think it started when I was four years old and I would sing Bob Segar with my grandpa. I was hooked. Summer has now graced us with it's presence and I put together a list of the top 10 songs you must have to complete your summer. These songs are perfect for any party, BBQ or just sitting on a tailgate with a cold one in your hand.
10. Raelynn – God Made Girls
Why? Because summer is not complete without us lovely ladies. Just face it guys, you need us.
9. Luke Bryan – Play It Again
Well, after all it is Luke Bryan. It's just not summer without bumping his newest single, right? However, if you're really looking to party hard I'd suggest "Suntan City" as well.
8. Little Big Town – Day Drinking
Perfect summer jam. I don't know about y'all but I'd say noon is the perfect time for a good shot of Southern Comfort.
7. OutShyne – Moonlight Crush
Chances are you haven't heard of these guys, they are still up and coming. The song is absolutely genius. They are my new favorite. Check it out.
6. Jake Owen – Beachin'
Oh come on, you know why this song has to make the list. It's summer…which means vacation time. Plus, my three year old is obsessed with it which makes it so much cooler.
5. Love & Theft – Night That You'll Never Forget
Another good thing about summer time, bonfires and field parties. I've had plenty of nights where I don't remember much but it was so much fun I couldn't forget it if i wanted to.
4. Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood – Somethin' Bad
Okay, two reasons this song is a must have. #1. These girls are fierce. #2 summer is the main reason I make bad decisions. The song is simply bad ass.
3. Brantley Gilbert feat. Thomas Rhett & Justin Moore - Smalltown Throwdown
These three guys are fearless. The song is amazing. Enough said.
2. Sam Hunt – Leave The Night On
This is my jam. I automatically hit the dance floor when I hear this like I'm kin to Miley Cyrus. Don't judge me folks.
1. Brad Paisley – River Bank
Brad is from West Virginia, so he gets the #1 spot! I kid I kid, summer and fishin' go hand in hand. This song just shouts SUMMERTIME!
