Country singers only like country songs, right? Of course not. Just check out “Getting Over You” singer Jackie Lee‘s summer playlist, which was published recently in USA Today.

With Kenny Chesney, Bruno Mars and Amos Lee, there’s definitely a little something for everyone. Here’s each track and why Jackie included it, according to the publication.

“Summertime,” Kenny Chesney
This song reminds me of all those summers growing up in East Tennessee. Loved going to the lake with my friends and family.

“Break Up Every Night,” The Chainsmokers
The whole Memories…Do Not Open record is amazing. I really feel like these guys are the voice of our generation.

“That’s What I Like,” Bruno Mars
Mars can do no wrong. He’s a musical genius.

“Violin,” Amos Lee
I love Lee’s honest, acoustic-driven songs. Feels like he knows how to articulate exactly what I’m feeling.

“Won’t Go Home Without You,” Maroon 5
This song makes me think about being 16 in my first car and having freedom. It Won’t Be Soon Before Long was the first album I ever bought.

“Body Like a Back Road,” Sam Hunt
Hunt is leading the charge for male acts in Nashville. I love his vision, and he does a wonderful job at being country with a modern sound.

“Ocean Avenue,” Yellowcard
There will always be a soft spot in my heart for punk rock. This song stands up.

“Steal My Girl,” One Direction
This is a jam. These guys always knock it out of the park. Can’t wait till they get back together.

“Edge of Desire,” John Mayer
I’ve listened to this song 10 times in a row before. Mayer’s music is timeless.

“Getting Over You,” Jackie Lee
I’m so thankful to have been apart of this song. Getting to make music with your friends is an intimate and rewarding feeling. It makes me so happy to see this song connect with people.
