I don't know what it is about Summer, but it makes me long for my country roots and all I want to listen to is some good ol' country music! If you can believe it, there are NO I mean, Zip. Zero. country radio stations in San Francisco!! It's seriously depressing. I was majorly missing out, until a friend filled me in on an amazing secret...
I'm sure you guys know about iTunes Radio by now (basically the same as Pandora) BUT iTunes Radio has a Top 50 Country Songs station, which is the Top 50 Country Songs that have been downloaded on iTunes each week. It's amazing! Now I can keep up to date on all the latest Country Music, all summer long! And if I want to listen to the classic stuff, I just switch over to my iTunes library.
There's nothing like driving with your windows down, sunroof open, and country music blasting on a hot summer day. Granted I have to leave the city to have any sort of summer weather, but I'll take what I can get. I should probably be embarrassed to admit how much joy this little station has brought me over the past few months! It gives me a little taste of summer while I'm hanging out in the fog.
This reminds me, I haven't been to a country concert in years! There is nothing like an outdoor country concert in the summer. I used to go to at least 2 or 3 a year back home, but as you can imagine, country music fans are harder to find in the big city and there aren't many country concert options :(
Anyways, I hope you enjoy this playlist of my current country favorites!
