We’ve included awesome summer country songs from Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, and other great country superstars that have payed homage to the hottest season of the year by writing a great song.
1. Zac Brown Band- Knee Deep
From Zac Brown Band’s second studio album You Get What You Give, “Knee Dee” is a great country summer song that was recorded with the legendary Jimmy Buffet. The lyrics give the perfect imagery for a sunny summer day, even if the song is about a man who has retreated intro a permanent vacation due to heartbreak- “Mind on a permanent vacation / The ocean is my only medication / Wishing my condition ain’t ever gonna go away.”.
