There’s nothing better than relaxing on the water on a hot summer day, whether it be on a river, lake or beach. And you can’t have the perfect day on the water without a killer playlist to go along with it. Here are eight country songs about being on water (with a drink in hand, of course) to add to your summertime playlist.
“Beachin’,” Jake Owen
This 2014 single from Owen reached No. 1 on the Country Airplay and Hot Country Billboard charts. The “Beachin'” music video was filmed in Daytona Beach, Fla. and is all about the best things about summer — watching the tide slowly roll in with a cold can in hand.
“Toes,” Zac Brown Band
“Toes” is a summertime classic about lounging on the beach with your toes in the sand. Plus, who doesn’t love singing along to the chorus of this one?
“Redneck Yacht Club,” Craig Morgan
Here’s a song that anyone who spent their summers on their local lakes will understand. It paints the perfect picture of everyone getting together, tying up whatever they have that floats and partying all day long.
“Pontoon,” Little Big Town
There’s no better place to have a cold drink with friends on the water than on a pontoon boat. Little Big Town released the song in 2012, and it was the group’s first No. 1 hit single. Oh, and they won a Grammy for it, so you know it’s good.
“Knee Deep,” Zac Brown Band and Jimmy Buffet
The Zac Brown Band teamed up with the king of summer parties for this beach-themed song. The carefree song makes the perfect tune to listen to whether lying on a beach, floating on a river or boating on a lake.
“Water,” Brad Paisley
You may have guessed from the title, but this song is all about water. From splashing in a kiddie pool as a child, to skinny dipping with a girl later in life, Paisley delves into his love of water. This song is a staple for any summer get-together.
“No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem,” Kenny Chesney
Honestly, this list could be comprised solely of Kenny Chesney tracks, as he’s the king of catchy beach songs. But “No Shirt, No Shirt, No Problems” is a must, and it never fails to get people singing along.
