4th of July Playlist

Is anyone gearing up for some 4th of July parties?

I love the 4th of July.  It's one of my favorite holidays.  You can't go wrong when a holiday involves a warm summer day at the lake, burgers, corn on the cob, beer, fireworks and red, white and blue? 

I love holidays and love to entertain.  One of the top things on my to-do list when planning a party is a great playlist.  Music is necessary for just about any party and finding the perfect songs is part of the fun! 

I started my 4th of July playlist a few years ago and add new songs to it every year.  You can almost always count on country stars to come out with a new song that has to do with America or fireworks or red, white and blue, or all of the above!

The requirements for my playlist are simple.  There has to be a mention of America, 4th of July, Red, White and Blue, and/or some combination of those somewhere in the song.  My taste in music is rather broad, so there are songs from many different genres.

In it's entirety, here ya go, my 4th of July Playlist:
