The Perfect Country Tailgate-Themed Party Playlist

If there’s anything they teach you growing up in Alabama, it’s how to throw a good party. Whether it’s in celebration of your favorite college football team’s spring scrimmage or before a big conference game on a Saturday in the fall, a good Southerner will never run out of excuses for donning a pair of faded jorts, a cut-off T-shirt and some cowboy boots and throwing down. Grab your Miller High Life and a red Solo cup and crank this playlist up, and a good time is sure to follow.
