It's a Great Day to Be Alive by Travis Tritt - There's Hard Times, but It's Still a Great Day!

Love Travis Tritt's Deep Voice!

This song is absolutely one of my favorite songs ! - It's A Great Day to Be Alive by Travis Tritt is filled with energy and positive messages from start to finish....'I know the suns still shining when I close my eyes, there's some hard times in the neighborhood by why can't everyday be just this good'

If you're looking for a song that says, 'hey, no matter what's going on in my life, I'm choosing to be in a good mood' then this is your anthem! You've decided 'to heck with everything'..there are still reasons to be grateful and I'm soaking up every single one of them with a smile on my face! It's a great day to dance, to love, to smile, and to enjoy the company of everyone in your life who's special ! - If that's the case, this song is for you! Be sure to listen to it if you haven't heard it before. Whenever things get a little tough, I blast this song and dance in the kitchen!

Here's Travis' Song!

It's A Great Day To Be Alive (Album Version)
It's A Great Day To Be Alive (Album Version)

This song was written by Darell Scott and was originally recorded by country artist Jon Randall in the '90's - Several other country artists covered the song as well but it wasn't until Travis Tritt covered the song in 2000 that it became as known as it is today. It was his second single on his Album, 'Down the Road I Go'.

It reached number 2 on the country hot billboard charts.

The Popular and Record Breaking 'Cruise by Florida Georgia Line'

My first clue that this was going to be a huge hit was when my 19 year old son, who isn't exclusively dedicated to country music told me to listen to it...Yep, that's when I pay attention! It's not like him to point out a song to me very often! He was onto something, the song has nearly 43,000,000 views to date on YouTube!

'Baby you a song, You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise' - That verse sums up the song pretty well. It's a day for cruising in your Chevy truck with a lady you've fallen for! You spend your day cruisin', sippin', singing and strumming on your guitar all while falling for her! A perfect summer day in the fresh farm air...enjoying each others company, just making a memory.

I'll bet most of us have experienced a summer day and summer love like this at some point in our life. If you have, then this song will bring you back!

As of January 2014 Cruise is Currently the Best-Selling Country Digital Song of All Time in the USA!

The song was also Remixed featuring Nelly. That video alone has nearly 30,000,000 views to date! It was released in December 2013. It reached number 4 on the Billboard Top 100. It holds a bizarre record as being the slowest climb to reaching the top five in 55 years - now that's the definition of persistence!


Cruise reached number 1 on the US Billboard chart in only 19 weeks making it the fastest song to reach the top since 'I Loved Her First' by Heartland in 2006.

This song has broken some pretty impressive records and the views and sales continue to rack up!

The Fun, Saucy and Sexy 'Redneck Woman by Gretchen Wilson'

'Here's to all my sisters, I've have been keeping it Country'

The first time I heard this song, I was hooked! This song is perfect for all the country and country at heart girls who have never been the 'barbie doll' type, but who can still hold a candle to Barbie herself! To heck with about for the girls who ARE the Barbie Doll Type but occasionally like to kick off those heals and get their redneck on.

She's a redneck women, she can do it trucks, ATVs, shop frugally and still look sexy...all while carrying a baby on her hip. Yes, her Christmas lights are up all year long, but don't doubt her ability to get just about everything else done to the max!

This song is a rallying call! It's fun, fast and sexy Gretchen Wilson kills this song! The video is just as much fun as the words and music to this one! Put all the girls in a good mood at a country redneck party with this tune!

'Nothing But Summer' by Canadian Country Rock Artist Dallas Smith - A Terrific Talent with a Great Voice!

This Song is the Best ! - It's a Perfect Choice for a Summer Party!

I don't know what it is about Dallas Smith, but he has that 'certain something' - Ok, yes, I'll say it, he's hot! But it's not his great looks that make this video or song (although it's an added bonus).

The video is all about being happy, in a great mood at the beach with friends and just enjoying fun in the sun! ...Pretty little girls flirting with little boys down at the snow cone stand'....get on your mark, set, baby get your feet wet...grab a little sunshine...'

Everybody's there for the party, some are in the water, some sitting on the beach, getting loud, listening to music...a great day! If you've ever enjoyed a great beach day with friends, then you'll love every single second of this song! If you're not already in a good mood, It will put you in a good mood!

Dallas Smith's Album 'Jumped Right In' Featuring Many Terrific Songs Including 'Nothing But Summer'

This is his full album that was released in May of 2012. The entire album is fantastic; Five singles from this album made it to the Country Top 100 in Canada. I've included another amazing song in the video section below called 'Jumped Right In' (same as the album title) - The lyrics to this song are fun, and yes they'll put you in a great mood too! These two songs are songs I personally can't get enough of!

Jumped Right In
Jumped Right In

This album was nominated as Country Album of the Year at the 2013 Juno Awards. it's no wonder, because by the end of 2012 Dallas was the most played Canadian country artist. He also received two prominent nominations at the CMA's; Country Male Artist of the Year and Single of the Year

He performed at the CMA's in 2013 - I saw that performance; he was incredible - His voice is top drawer..

      I have a country song, a rock song, a folk song, mostly in multiple quantities. The country song would be Jimmy Webb's Too Young To Die, at least today anyway. Or, maybe it's Gentle on My Mind. Too many choices.

      Believe it or not, Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" puts me in a great mood. Not sure what that says about me, but I do love that song!
