Sweet Sounds of Summer

First of all, for those of you in the United States, Happy Memorial Day! A giant THANK YOU to everyone who serves or has served in the armed forces.

It’s time to soak up the sweet sounds of summer: the crashing ocean waves, the crackle of a campfire, the familiar tinny tunes from the ice cream truck, and the soft patter of afternoon rain showers.

For me, summer has a soundtrack all its own. I’m not normally a country music fan, but there’s something about warm weather that just seems to fit with a little twang and southern drawl. I like chill songs that make you sit back and relax. I also fill my summer playlists with upbeat, energetic songs that match the bright sunshine outside. An ecletic mix, for sure, but isn’t that the way summer should be?

If you’re in need of a new summer soundtrack, here are a few suggestions:
