The Ten Very Best Beach Songs Country Style 2014

Funny-Bikini-Girls-on-BeachThe Ten Very Best Beach Songs Country Style

Picture Google: Article Billy Dukes

Lazy days on the beach need a good soundtrack, and country stars are happy to oblige. The best beach songs come from legends and relative newcomers, but all promote fun in the sun and surf. You can practically smell the suntan lotion or taste the salt air as you listen to the best of the beach tunes — trust us, they’ll come in handy when you get to Mexico for Tropical Nights: Boots in the Sand.

All Summer Long

Atlantic Records

#10 ‘All Summer Long’ Kid Rock

It’s assumed that the rest of the beach songs on this list refer to coastal plains with ocean views, but Kid Rock‘s hit from 2008 boasts about the beautiful beaches along the Great Lakes and inland Michigan. There’s blue waves as far as the eye can see up north as well, and this all-time great summer hit practically takes you there. Rock describes the perfect summer vacation for a teenager looking to make a little trouble and a few memories.

You Get What You Give

Southern Ground Records

#9 ‘Knee Deep’ Zac Brown Band

The Zac Brown Band is one of two artists on this list with two songs. ‘Knee Deep,’ a No. 1 hit from 2011, features the King of the Beach — Jimmy Buffett. No one describes the feeling of purposeful isolation better than that legend, but Brown and company come close with this great beach song.

Luke Bryan's 'Spring Break... Here to Party' EP

Capitol Records Nashville

#8 ‘Suntan City’ Luke Bryan

Luke Bryan has dedicated a series of EPs to Spring Break, and ‘Suntan City’ is the best of those beach-flavored songs. Those few moments in the car before you arrive for a week of freedom are full of anticipation. One would have to be almost dead not to feel the excitement of the warm sun, hot bodies and cool saltwater running over your toes. Bryan includes it all in his track from 2013.

Some Beach

Warner Bros.

#7 ‘Some Beach’ Blake Shelton

Some may argue that ‘Some Beach’ isn’t really a beach song. Blake Shelton‘s hit from 2004 is more about a guy having a lousy day, but the singer also spends significant time dreaming about a seaside holiday. The easy tempo and island flavor of the guitars helped bump it up a few spots on this list. Plus, the ToC staff still gets a chuckle every time it comes on the radio.

A Buncha Girls

Reprise Records

#6 ‘A Buncha Girls’ Frankie Ballard

Frankie Ballard‘s hit from 2011 describes the drive-up to the beach much like Luke Bryan’s ‘Suntan City,’ but his song is a little catchier. Both are very girl-centric. In fact, it’s tough to find a song from a female artist about how hot a group of guys at the beach are (they must not have seen these pics of shirtless country singers). Ballard cracked the Top 30 with this single, the second from his self-titled album.

#5 ‘Two Pina Coladas’ Garth Brooks

‘Two Pina Coladas’ is one of Garth Brooks‘ most popular songs, but it only checks in at No. 5 on this list of beach songs. Lyrically, it’s undoubtedly about a beach getaway, but the focus is more on the booze than the waves. This No. 1 from 1998 fits better as a drinking song that a beach song.

No Shoes No Shirt No Problems

BNA Nashville

#4 ‘No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems’ Kenny Chesney

 Kenny Chesney is country’s reigning beach master. There was a time in the early-to-mid ’00s when every song he released sounded like the surf. The ‘Be as You Are (Songs From an Old Blue Chair)’ album epitomized that style, but ‘No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems’ began the trend. The laid-back nature of this easy-to-appreciate country song is still appealing today.

#3 ‘Toes’ Zac Brown Band

Everything one enjoys about the beach is simplified into one great line from ‘Toes,’ the Zac Brown Band’s controversial hit from 2009. “I got my toes in the water, a– in the sand / Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand / Life is good today.” The song tells the story of a Mexican getaway that goes awry, but the chorus is the most important part. It’s good enough to earn this song the No. 3 spot on this list.

When the Sun Goes Down

#2 ‘When the Sun Goes Down’ Kenny Chesney

Chesney was in full beach bum mode when he released ‘When the Sun Goes Down’ with Uncle Kracker in 2004. It helped him win Entertainer of the Year that year, and the title track pushed the album to Album of the Year honors. Comparisons to Jimmy Buffett began before this song was released, but after this island-inspired hit, they ramped up. That’s a compliment, as few have defined life on the beach in a song quite like Buffett. Which is why …

#1 ‘Margaritaville’ Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Margaritaville’ was a country hit, in addition to becoming a hit on just about every other format of radio short of opera. It’s the first song you think of when you start dreaming of dropping your worries and running off to a sand-covered, rum-heavy hut in the islands. The sounds, the smells, the tastes of this song (sure, you can taste music) make it one of the greatest country songs of all time and a sure thing for the Top Beach Songs list.

Asthma Attack Gets Man a Free Day in Morgue

yesiamstillaliveAsthma Attack Gets Man a Free Day in Morgue Refrigerator

A South African man suffered an asthma attack Friday and woke up Sunday tagged and cold in a morgue refrigerator.

Sizwe Kupelo’s family called an undertaker after he suffered an asthma attack that rendered him unconscious, or what turned out to be just napping, last Friday. Morgue owner Ayanda Maqolo said he sent his driver to collect the body shortly after the family called. He “thought the man was around 80 years old,” which is probably close enough to death to flip a coin, but he checked the pulse and not finding one, transported the body to the morgue.

Nearly 24 hours after staff placed Kupelo’s body into a locked refrigerated compartment, morgue workers heard ghosts shouting at them. The ghost noises also scared the morgue owner, but in a brave attempt to calm his employees, he did what anyone who hears a ghost does, he ran really fast from the morgue and called the police.

When the police arrived the morgue owner said he “was glad they had their firearms, in case something wanted to fight” and the group re-entered together. When police opened the haunted fridge they found the ghost turned out to be a very unhappy Mr. Kupelo, who was reported as looking “pale.” Kupelo asked officials how he got there and if anyone had a sandwich.

Kupelo returned home to a confused family planning for his funeral. Despite just purchasing a non-refundable coffin, the family said they were happy to have him home. After a night in his own bed, Kupelo told the Associated Press, “I couldn’t sleep last night, I had nightmares. But today I’m much better.” Kupelo intends to turn the coffin into a decorative coffee table, a nice resting place for his asthma medication.

Well that’s the New and unapproved South Africa for you

Relative of Johnny Cash Found Dead in Tennessee

Relative of Johnny Cash Found Dead in Tennessee

Courtney Cash, great-niece of the legendary Johnny Cash, was killed on Wednesday (March 19) when apparently a fight between friends turned sour.

The victim, 23, was found dead inside a box at a residence in Putnam County, a rural area in Tennessee, Fox 17 reports. Cash’s boyfriend, William Austin Johnson, suffered a stab wound at the scene. He’s currently at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville in stable condition. Their child, who is around two years old, was also found at the residence.

This tragedy came onto police radar on Wednesday at approximately 10:40AM local time, when a 911 call was placed. The cell phone’s ping location brought officers to the wrong address, but after another call 30 minutes later, they were able to find the correct location.

Sheriff David Andrews says Courtney Cash was found just inside the front door in something which was “like a cedar chest, only it was not cedar.” He believes the young woman and Johnson invited their friend, Wayne Gary Masciarella, 27, to come over and hang out, which is when an altercation ensued, according to WSMV.

Masciarella was taken into custody in Cookeville, Tenn. and is being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge. His next court date is April 21. Sheriff Andrews says the suspect has 20 previous charges with his department.

“It appears there was an altercation, but to what extent … I’m not free to go into that right now, but there was certainly some kind of altercation,” Andrews reveals. After the incident, it appears Johnson grabbed the couple’s child and ran, calling for emergency services.

Tommy Cash, the victim’s grandfather and younger brother of the late Johnny Cash, released the following statement regarding the devastating incident, asking for prayers:

“We ask for your prayers for the Cash family at this time. Courtney and her boyfriend are beloved members of my family and like you we have a lot of questions and emotions that we are beginning to sort through today. We ask for you to respect our privacy and appreciate all the support that the public and media has always offered my family, as we handle the loss of my grand-daughter, pray for the father of my great-grand child and journey through the search for justice on this violent act. We are completely heartbroken. It is a time like this that we are grateful for our faith and trusting the loving guidance of God.”

Officials have concluded that Courtney Cash’s cause of death was the stab wounds she suffered.

I empower you-infusing inner strength into you so that you are ready for anything and equal to anything. It’s essential to remember that this inner strength comes through Me, through your connection with Me. It comes to you as you need it-as you take trusting steps of dependence, moving forward with your eyes on Me. This promise is a powerful antidote to fear-especially your fear of being overwhelmed by circumstances you see looming ahead. They may look daunting, but in Me you are indeed ready for anything and equal to anything.Of course, you’re not currently ready for every imaginable situation. I carefully control what happens in your life. I am constantly protecting you from both known and unknown dangers. And I provide strength, just when you need it, for everything I allow to touch your life. Many of the future things you anxiously anticipate will not actually reach you. My promise is for things you face in the present, and it is sufficient. So when you are feeling the strain of an uphill journey, tell yourself the truth: I have strength for all things through Christ who empowers me!

“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. -Philippians 4:13 amp”

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. -John 15:4 nkjv

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. -Psalm 28:7
