Music Monday: Sounds of Summer


In Cardinal & Cream’s new Music Monday series, a different staff member will curate a new playlist every week. We hope you enjoy our selections and discover some new tunes to add to your own collection along the way.

For our first installment, I’ve put together some of my favorite songs from this past summer because let’s face it — none of us are really ready for summer to end just yet.

Quite a bit of my summer was spent driving across the beautiful state of Tennessee, listening to songs like this. In fact, some of these songs were actually written about the state, so that’s fitting, right? I recommend this playlist for all of your Tennessee travels — whether you’re heading east to the mountains or just downtown for coffee.

What do you think? What did you jam out to this summer? Share your picks, and keep an eye out for a new playlist every Monday!
