They say that summer doesn't technically start until June 21st, but that's just crazy. Everybody knows that Memorial Day is when the fun really starts. All across the country, folks are planning Memorial Day parties, cookouts and family get togethers for this weekend. It's the perfect way to kick off your summer. But you are going need some good summer barbecue music to go along with those burgers, beers and hot dogs. Luckily it just so happens we have the perfect soundtrack to your Memorial Day party! Our Memorial Day playlist is all about the stuff that makes summer so great. But it's also a tribute to what makes America great since that's what this holiday is really about: Celebrating our great country and all of those that have served it. Enjoy!
