Ever wonder what happens when three amazing songwriters who have a knack for entertaining get together with a spectacular drummer? The marvelous foursome that is now known as Blackjack Billy. Noll Billings, Rob Blackledge and Jeff Coplan each come from a different part of the country bringing their own backgrounds and influences to Nashville, while drummer Brad Cummings was born and raised Nashville. They first made their mark in country music with the release of their debut single “The Booze Cruise” which became the biggest selling song on iTunes by an unsigned artist. They have released a few more singles since then but, “Why God Made Summertime” has to be one of their best. This will be the song blasting through your speakers all summer long! It reminds us of what summertime was like when we were on summer break from school with no worries in the world. When you match a catchy melody with an infectious chorus like “Got the gang out back sprinkler in the grass/ T-bones grillin, cold Corona chillin/ Get your lazy on all day long/ Let the sun shine that's why god made summertime” you will have a song that will literally be stuck in your head all summer long.
Do yourself a favor and go download this song! I promise you won’t regret it one bit!
