The Top 5 Songs From the Summer of 2000
Power outages like we experienced in Abilene Monday evening (6/17) reminded me of when the air conditioner broke at our house in the summer of 2000.
That was the year Donna and I spent a lot of time on the back porch trying to keep cool. We sipped iced tea and listened to music like “Cowboy Take Me Away” by the Dixie Chicks and “How Do You Like Me Now” by Toby Keith. The summer of 2000 also had other awesome songs like them.
Check out the top 5 songs from the summer of 2000
