The thaw is upon us — or at least, it’s supposed to be, because yesterday was the first day of spring. And that of course brings along daydreams of warmer weather, shorter sleeves, outdoor fun, spring break, road trips, maybe even a beach party, and lots more sunshine. It’s not summer yet, but we’re on our way.
Below are ten songs to help celebrate spring. From Kenny Chesney, Robert Earl Keen, and Sugarland to vintage cuts from Jerry Reed (one of the best road songs ever) and, going way back, Johnny Horton, cue these up and get your springtime mood in full swing.
