Twelve Best Summertime Country Songs

Here’s a completely subjective and unranked list of the greatest summertime country songs of all time. Plus one bonus track. Keep in mind that these songs are from an era before the mid-90s.

I’ve got my reasons.

“Grilin’ and Chillin'” by Sammy Kershaw

“Sweet Summer Lovin'” by Dolly Parton

“Fishing in the Dark” by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

“Summer’s Comin'” by Clink Black

“Long Hot Summer Days” by John Hartford

“Summertime Blues” by Alan Jackson

“Strawberry Wine” by Deana Carter

“Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson

“Pickup Man” by Joe Diffie

“Watermelon Crawl” by Tracy Bryd

“Seashores of Old Mexico” by Merle Haggard

May not scream “summer” but screams hilarious:
