Summer is almost here. That means long weekends at the lake, barbecues, and road trips with the girls. But before you set out Thelma and Louise-style, you need to do a little bit of prep work. Bathing suit: check. Sunscreen: check. Those sunglasses that make you look super chic: check. But more than anything, you need a playlist. Because every event needs a soundtrack– especially when you’re hanging with your BFFs on a girls’ weekend. Here are the country songs must-haves.
10. Miranda Lambert: “Pink Sunglasses”
Not normally one for bubble-gum country, Miranda Lambert definitely goes a bit off the reservation with this hit that almost sounds a little pop. Thanks to the fact that it doesn’t have her usual heavy-hitting emotional lyrics (unless you want a girls trip full of tears), “Pink Sunglasses” is a great song for your weekend. And listening to the lyrics, you might just have to get a pair of rose-colored shades before you hit the road.
“In my pink sunglasses / Always makes the world look a little bit better…At $9.99, I’m perfectly disguised / When I’m walking by, I wanna roll my eyes/ In my pink sunglasses” she sings.
