Summer Break Up Playlist

Each year at this time I go through a tumultuous breakup.  It happens out of no where and I’m left not having seen it coming and wondering how it even happened.  The break up I am referring to is of course my break up with summer.  It’s that inevitable weekend that we know is going to happen as soon as Memorial Day hits.  Labor Day weekend brings about the end of a summer and marks the beginning of the season of football, flannels, pumpkins and great boots.  Growing up on the shores of Cape Cod, the end of summer definitely has a greater impact on my town than others.  The streets go from being filled with people down to only the few you know by name and you no longer have to wait an hour and a half for a table at your favorite restaurant.  Gone are the days of sun, fun, swimwear and carefree taste in music.  Now that fall is in the air it’s time for some deeper tracks.  From the classic end of summer song “The Boys of Summer” by Don Henley to Kenny Chesney’s “The Boys of Fall“, the perfect song to get geared up for football season, this playlist has something for everyone.  Here’s my playlist to help ease that transition from summer to fall!

Feature Friday – Sam Hunt

Right now is the time for song writers in the country music world.  The people behind the top songs we’ve been hearing from big time artists are now getting their time in the spotlight.  One of my favorite writers, Sam Hunt, is on the path to being a major star.  He’s behind massive hits such as Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over”, Billy Currington’s “We Are Tonight” and Keith Urban’s “Cop Car”.        Before moving to Nashville to begin his writing career Sam played quarterback at the University of Alabama – Birmingham.  That’s right ladies not only is he gorgeous and super talented as a singer/songwriter but is a sports star too.


Back in 2013 Hunt released a free acoustic mixtape which I’ve posted below for you all to listen to.  It includes his version’s of “Cop Car” “We Are Tonight” and “Come Over”.  I know that it’s a crime to say this but I like his pipes singing “Come Over” better than Kenny’s!  Sam definitely has a hip-hop influence in his music which is rare to see on the country side of things other than in remixes of “Dirt Road Anthem” or “Cruise”.  He brings a blend to the table and almost creates a new genre with his style.  Right now his single “Leave the Night On” is climbing the charts and he’s hitting the road with Kip Moore for the CMT Tour.  I give it a year and this boy will be headlining tours of his own!
