It’s hot – really hot – these days. To help you get through the sweltering weekend ahead, we picked our favorite summer jams that should make you forget about the sweat dripping down your back.

Whether it’s Rascal Flatts “Summer Nights” or Jake Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” the second we hear one of those songs, we want to grab a beer and go dancing on the beach.

Maybe you’re one of the lucky fans who will be attending one of the awesome festivals happening this weekend – Country Thunder in Twin Lakes, Wis., Jamboree in the Hills in Belmont, Ohio, or Faster Horses in Brooklyn, Mich. – where you’ll get to hear Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and more play their hits.

So whether you’re road-tripping to a festival, heading to the beach, hanging out on a “Pontoon” or dipping your “Toes” in the “Water,” tap that keg while jamming out to Keith Urban’s “Long Hot Summer,” Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer” and more of our favorite country music summer songs in this Spotify playlist.
