How much do we love the sweet summertime season? If you are like us, you want to spend your time outdoors, whether that’s on the river or on the beach, and you want to have a few adventures to build lifelong memories. What is more memorable than a summer road trip with your best friends, your family, or your sweetheart?
While you need to pack a few goodies like your cowboy hat (to protect from the sun), your camera (to take photos along the way), and a swimsuit (for unexpected swims), there’s another crucial element you can’t hit the road without: your perfect country music road trippin’ playlist! Here are our favorite songs that scream summer and make you want to smile.
Cruise – Florida Georgia Line. A classic, feel good song no matter where you are, but even more appropriate as you drive over the Florida/Georgia line.
Drive – Alan Jackson. What a great song about growing up, learning to drive, and passing that onto your kids.
Bye Bye – Jo Dee Messina. This girl-power song refers to tearing off the rearview mirror and pressing the gas. Just go!
Good Directions – Billy Currington. Sure, it’s about being lost on the highway, but the ending is just right.
Summer Girl – Jessica Andrews. The summer ends, and this song will put you in a great mood while you’re driving.
There you have it, some of our favorite songs for driving. Now grab your boiled peanuts and hit the highway!
