The Best Country Music Songs for Your Vacation Playlist
Whether you’re lying on a beach somewhere or just sitting in the back of a pickup truck drinking a beer, country music makes for a perfect vacation or road trip soundtrack.
With Tropical Nights: Boots in the Sand in February and your chance to win a free trip to Mexico here now, we’ve put together the perfect vacation playlist featuring some of our favorite country songs.
It’s kind of the ultimate vacation, so even if you don’t win a trip it’s hard to see any downsides with booking your own passage to Riviera Maya, Mexico.
Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer
Anytime you go on vacation where there’s sun and surf, you’re going to work up a thirst. If you want to drink something other than a soft drink, you’ll have to be ‘Pretty Good at Drinkin’ Beer.’
Everybody in Houston calls you Texas. In NJ, they call you cornbread. Your mama calls you ‘baby,’ your daddy calls you ‘boy’ and your friends call you ‘crazy.’ But after the trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico for Boots in the Sand, you may end up with a new nickname: “Whiskey.”
That’s How Country Boys Roll
If you’ve been working all week ’til the job gets done, spinnin’ your wheels, castin’ your reels but not gettin’ a bite, then a trip to the beach may be in order. Soak up some sun, because ‘That’s How Country Boys Roll.’ (And girls, too!)
G.R.I.T.S. – Girls Raised in the South
They might not serve grits down in beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico, but the good news is you can take your own! And by that we mean your girl, because southern girls ain’t ordinary women. We call these girls ‘GRITS.’
When the sun goes down when you’re on vacation, you know it’s party time! You’ll probably sing, ‘hey now here we go floor/DJ don’t you play nothing slow/worked all week it’s time to play/gonna get a little bit sideways’ — just like Dierks Bentley.
