Looking for some new summer tunes? I’ve got you covered! Today I’m sharing a new playlist that I’m calling Summer Folk. It’s an easy, upbeat playlist that’s the perfect background for all your favorite summer activities.
I thought it was time for another playlist. I’ve actually been assembling this one for a couple months now. It finally came together when I heard the new music from The Highwomen. It’s an incredible talented group of women including Amanda Shires, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris, and my absolute favorite, Brandi Carlile. They just released two songs: “Redesigning Woman” and “Crowded Table”. Naturally I had to include both on this playlist.

There have also been a few new songs released by The Lumineers in their three-part EP series. “Gloria” is a standout favorite, but I also love their latest “It Wasn’t Easy To Be Happy For You”.
I wanted to create this playlist as a background soundtrack for my summer meanderings. I recently purchased three of these Sonos speakers. One for my new kitchen, one for my living room, and one for my family room. As you know, I use Spotify for all of my music needs and these speakers work seamlessly with the platform. They play music through your wireless rather than bluetooth so your phone doesn’t need to be near the speaker and noises from calls, texts, apps, etc. don’t play through the speakers. Clearly, I’m a big fan!
This Summer Folk collection is my go-to playlist when I’m putzing around the house, whipping up something in the kitchen, or hanging out on my deck or side porch. (I’ve placed the speakers near a window by the deck and porch so I can hear the music outside too.) It’s honestly been the best. All three speakers play at the same time, so I can here my music wherever I am in the house. To me, I love music like this to play in the background. It’s a combination of chill, happy, and homey.
If you enjoy artists like Mumford and Sons, Brandi Carlile, and The Avett Brothers, I think you’ll like this playlist as much as I do. You can use the widget below to listen or find it here on Spotify. If you like my music selection, be sure to follow along with my Spotify profile here.

And that’s a wrap on today’s Tuesday Tunes. I hope you enjoy and discover some new music through my playlists. Want more? You can find all of my Tuesday Tunes here. Happy listening.
