It’s about that time of year when the fortunate begin planning their spring break vacation, and the rest of us put on this playlist instead.
1. â€œDrunk On A Planeâ€ by Dierks Bentley.
Taking us away is Dierks Bentley and his 2014 single, â€œDrunk On A Plane.â€ Bentley has won a string of awards including video of the year for this song in 2014. â€œDrunk on a Planeâ€ is the third single from Bentleyâ€™s seventh album titled Riser. The fun, uplifting storyline of the video matched with Bentleyâ€™s catchy lyrics will have you fighting the urge to call your local travel agent.
2. â€œSome Beachâ€ by Blake Shelton.
If the cold weather is finally hitting and the week has been too long, Blake Sheltonâ€™s classic, â€œSome Beachâ€ can help. The song is from the album, Blake Sheltonâ€™s Bar & Grill, and stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for four weeks after being released in 2004.
3. â€œSuntan Cityâ€ by Luke Bryan.
Nothing says spring break like lyrics about coconut bras, beaches, and cold ones. This song was one of the four tracks from Bryanâ€™s 2012 album, Spring Break 4â€¦ Suntan City. The song regained popularity in 2013 after Bryan released, Spring Breakâ€¦ Here to Party, which included the song again.
4. It’s Five O’ Clock Somewhereâ€ by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.
It would not be an imaginary spring break without the need for an imaginary drink. Jackson and Buffettâ€™s massive hit was written by Jim “Moose” Brown and Don Rollins. Brown first offered the song to our next artist on the list, but he turned down the offer.
5. â€œNo Shoes, No Shirt, No Problemsâ€ by Kenny Chesney.
Kenny Chesneyâ€™s song, â€œNo Shoes, No Shirt, No Problemsâ€ encapsulates the peacefulness of a reggae ballad while still keeping Chesneyâ€™s country rooted sound. The song was released back in 2002, and even claimed the title of the album.
