Summer is one of my favorite times of the year! Even though it’s only April, here in Alabama we’re already getting temperatures in the 80s! Between cookouts, shows, and beach time Summer is a whirlwind of fun! Music is an integral part of my life and I love having a great playlist to fit the mood for whatever occasion. Here are 10 songs that are guaranteed to be played at some point (or a few) over these warm months. Let’s welcome the heat with a collection of old favorites sprinkled among current hits! May you and yours have a blissful, beautiful Summer! If you need even more tunes for your playlist don’t forget about the mixes from January, February, and March!
