Country Favorites: Summer 2017

Life

Even though it’s technically still spring, summer music is undoubtedly here.

Some of my favorites:

  • Body Like A Back Road (Sam Hunt) Talk about one of those instant feel-good jams. Goin 15 in a 30, I ain’t in no hurry, Imma take it slow just as fast as I can.
  • Craving You (Thomas Rhett & Maren Morris) Two of the top most popular country artists collaborating. What a beautiful thing!
  • Happy People (Little Big Town) This song has the best vibe and super solid lyrics too. Personal favorite line…Happy people don’t fail; happy people just learn.
  • The Fighter (Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood) Am I the only one who has a significant urge to kick-box when I hear this song? I’m still thinking about a full out routine to go with the song…
  • For Her (Chris Lane) Maybe the most adorable song ever-check it out.
  • Greatest Love Story (LANCO) This song is the first LANCO song I ever did hear and let me tell you they just might become a favorite of mine. If you have not yet heard this song, check. it. out.
  • No Such Thing As A Broken Heart (Old Dominion) Another extremely catchy song with excellent lyrics.
  • Round Here Buzz (Eric Church) This is a JAM! I have heard really great things about Eric’s Holding My Own tour and I just just imagine him singing this one live.
  • You Broke Up With Me (Walker Hayes) One of my gym buddies caught me jammmmmmming to this tune last week in my car…I had no idea he was driving in the lane next to me… The tune/lyric combination is on point. Do yourself a favor and listen to this one.

My Summer Country Favorites

Life

Summertime never lets me down in the country music world. This season a lot of good songs have been playing on the radio. Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Sam Hunt, House Party. When you think about it, this is really a re-make of Shania Twain’s classic Party For Two. And I’m OK with that.
  2. Kelsea Ballerini, Dibs. I am being a little before-the-times with this one but it’s just adorable. If you’ve got a Friday night free and a shot-gun seat, well I’m just sayin I ain’t got nowhere to be.
  3. Thomas Rhett, Crash and Burn. Truly this is a sweet song but it’s the catchy beat that gets me jammin.
  4. Jake Owen, Real Life.But that waitress, she’s real rude. She’s got real problems but we do too so we tip her anyway.” JUST YES.
  5. Carrie Underwood, Smoke Break. I love Carrie and I’m just glad she’s back with new stuff on the radio.
  6. Eric Church, Like a Wrecking Ball. Does this count as a guilty pleasure? Admit it, you love it too.
  7. Florida Georgia Line, Anything Goes. Because FGL is such a summer band and this song simply does not disappoint.

I thought this was a perfect opportunity to share this picture of Kara and I with a “taller and better looking Jason Aldean” at Country Thunder.
