Perfectly Southern Labor Day Playlist Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 0 Comments


Despite its name, Labor Day is about anything but work. Celebrate the unofficial end of summer (and a paid day out of the office) with a good ol-fashioned country barbecue.

As you fire up the smoker, turn up the jams. Impress your guests with a Labor Day playlist of tunes tailor-made for the event. We’ve got something for everyone on our vacation day soundtrack, so go ahead and press play.

If your two-hour dinner party turns into an all-night affair, keep the sound fresh by clicking over to our ultimate summer 2013 playlist. And when your friends ask who picked the music selection? Go ahead and take credit. Your secret’s safe with us.

Check out our complete playlist below, and stream it through Spotify for easy listening.
