    Tube in Deckers and just be outside pickin' guitars!

Jason Miller's 10 Songs for Summertime to get you in the mood for WHISKEY III.

1. Summertime — Janis Joplin
Janis had one of the most powerful unique voices ever. Her dynamics in this tune send chills up my spine!

 2. Only the Song Survives — John Hiatt
"We rolled that Camaro like a Cowboy's cigarette out in the Highway in a puddle of beer, Hiatt writes like no other.

3. On the Road Again — Willie Nelson
Load up the wheels and take a road trip, it's a summertime must do.

4. Honky Tonkin' — Hank Williams
I love to go out pub crawling with my girl!

5. Rainbow Stew — Merle Haggard
Merle always makes me feel good with genuine lyrics and toes are tapping.

6. Jack and Diane — John Mellencamp
This goes back to my childhood! Tasty Freeze's, the midwest, the beach, Indiana was where i grew up right outside Chicago. I go back there every sumnmer in my own mind.

7. Six Days on the Road — The Flying Burrito Brothers
The trucker anthem has lived through many years! Our band plays this song and there is just something about an 18 Wheeler and the Highway.

8. At My Window — Townes Van Zandt
A lullabye of sorts. Makes me want to daydream all day.

9. LA Freeway — Guy Clark
A song about leaving the city for some dirt roads. I love dirt roads, especially the ones that I am unfamiliar with.

10. Don't it Make You Dance — Jerry Jeff Walker
In the country pick and sing a while. This song is the perfect party starter.
