Riley Green performs onstage during Day 1 of the 2023 Stagecoach Festival on April 28, 2023 in Indio, California.

Admit it, seeing NSync on this list made you click it, right? I am right there with you!! Welcome to another Monday playlist. My allergies are flaring, the pollen is in my pores, and I am ready for summer concerts to take over my life! Let’s go!

First up we have Larry Fleet. His new radio single, Things I Take For Granted, pauses to look at all the small things we overlook that are going our way. In my own journey, on hard days I’ve often turned to my gratitude journal where I could list something as simple as the sun shining or having the same best friend for over 10 years. Larry takes the same approach with this song – sure his paycheck could be bigger or he could have a nicer truck, but he hit green lights on the way home and has a family that loves him. This song is just a lovely reminder.

Next up, one of Country’s major current heartthrobs, Riley Green. I love a good breakup song, especially when it’s flipped on its head into an upbeat anthem. Damn Good Day To Leave is very reminiscent of Luke Combs’ song When It Rains It Pours. Riley’s twang with his particular tone just itches the right part of my brain. I hope this song takes off at Country radio and I guarantee we’ll be playing it on KML!

Last but not least is a moment that recently hit many Millenials VERY hard! Justin Timberlake put out a new album last week and it included a song with his former bandmates NSync. Their new song Paradise feels like a love letter to the fans. Did I cry? Yes. Do I still think JC had the best vocals of the group? Duh. Did the harmonies bring me back to 1997? Obviously. I also may have gone down a TikTok rabbit hole of the band performing this live last week and bawled like a baby. This song is, quite literally, perfection for anyone that grew up an NSync fan!
