The song begs the question, “What are you doing New Year’s Eve,” but if you’re like most people, you’ve been happily bombarded with holiday party invitations of all kinds since Thanksgiving. We don’t hate that one bit. In fact, we love hitting parties with our fellow country music lovers, but the thing that can turn a great party into an incredible party, besides the cocktail weenies, is the playlist.

Rare Country’s 5 has compiled a list of five favorite country anthems to get the party started and, to no one’s surprise, Blake Shelton is kicking things off!

Blake says it best: “It’s all about tonight, good times and the music, and laughing and grooving to the band.” And he is absolutely right. This uptempo country favorite, “All About Tonight,” is just about a good time with no concern of repercussions or thought of regrets. Heck, he even encourages you to “act like fools, break a few rules and party the night away.”

But it’s also about a dang good beat that gets you out of your seat. So when you hear that drum beat, kick off your shoes and get to moving. And don’t forget to have that red Gatorade ready for the morning.

As fun and light-hearted as Blake’s party anthem is, Jason Aldean’s is driving and intense, but it doesn’t make us want to throw down any less! “My Kinda Party” is a country rocker that gets you from clocking out at 5:00 on Friday to hitting the parties by 9:00 in just about three minutes! He even says it in the song, written by Brantley Gilbert: “I worked all week, cleaned up, clean cut and clean shaved.” Clean shaved? He means business now!

The best part of “My Kinda Party” is that Jason’s kinda party is probably going to happen outside, off of a Georgia dirt road in a turn row.

Heck yeah.

There is no shortage of party anthems in country music, including songs from Shania Twain, Alan Jackson and Gretchen Wilson, we just picked five favorites for this Rare Country’s 5. Now let’s hear what yours are! Be sure to comment with your favorite tune to get the party started, whether it’s a blowout or an intimate gathering of friends. Any party is good to us!

And be sure to check back in later this week when we have more of the fun from in and around country music in Rare Country’s 5.
