Feel Good Summer Song

Album: See You Tonight (2013)

  • Lyrics
  • Despite its title, this J.T. Harding, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne penned song is the antithesis of a carefree summer anthem. It describes a heartbroken man who desperately wants to forget a painful memory and move on with his life:

    "Since you're gone
    I can't hear another feel good summer song
    The sunshine only lights up what is wrong
    I should just give in and sing along,"

    Scotty explained: "Every time he turns on the radio station, he just hears another feel-good country song. He says, 'How can I get over you when every station is playing a feel-good country song?'"
