As we enjoy the summer of 2022, we look back at some of country music’s biggest and best songs of the season.
Blake sings of frustrations and having to wait all afternoon at the dentist's office by wishing that he were "on some beach, somewhere."
The lyrics include, "You know I like my chicken fried / Cold beer on a Friday night / A pair of jeans that fit just right / And the radio up."
The song expresses the fact that "money can't buy happiness /, but it can buy a boat."
Carrie said of the writing process on this song, "I was like, 'This sounds like fun, I think. We can do something fun with this.' But then you realize how tricky for some reason it is to be a woman and write kind of a drinking party boat song."
The song is a summer duet with Chesney and Uncle Kracker.
The massive hit that Luke closes out every show with, it features a list of various things and people that have disappointed him in his life before concluding in the chorus that "long-neck, ice-cold beer never broke my heart."
A big ole' summer hit, "That's My Kind of Night" helped Luke set a record as the first male country music artist to top the Billboard's Hot Country Songs and Top Country Albums charts simultaneously.
According to Hunt, the song was written after his engagement to Hannah Lee Fowler. Sam described it as "a lighthearted song."
The song's video was filmed outside Nashville and featured the duo driving and performing against an American flag backdrop at a colorful paint party.
Keith co-wrote this infectious summer anthem with 1980s pop star Richard Marx.
A career-defining song, "Pontoon" won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. It screams summer and makes you want to board a boat as soon as possible.
Luke Bryan said in an interview last month (June 2022) that when he thinks of summer, this is the song he thinks of. Alan said of the song he co-wrote, "It's a song about having fun, growing up, and coming of age in a small town - which applies to anyone across the country, not just by the Chattahoochee."
