Country music is (of course) the best genre to listen to year-round, but there's just something about the summertime that makes the classics even better—especially when you're lounging down on the beach. The warmth of the summer sun, the sound of the ocean waves, the smell of the salt in your hair...few things are as relaxing as a day on the coast. Next time you head out to the shore, or just take your lounge chair to the backyard, queue up these country beach songs. Featuring your favorite artists—including Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, and Dolly Parton—this list will have you moving and grooving on the shoreline. Every tune will make you want to sing louder than the last (except that may not be such a great idea at a public beach!). Here are our 35 top country beach songs to top off a perfect summer day.
