The first official day of summer is just around the corner, so we’re breaking out the red mic to make sure your summer soundtrack is anything but boring.

You’re sure to hear certain anthems on repeat for the next three months, but let's face it—your road trips, BBQs and beach bummin’ deserve even #MoreMusic. That’s why we’re bringing you exclusive tracks from some of this summer’s hottest artists, like country’s rising star Maren Morris.

Just a few short years ago, Maren was penning songs for artists like Kelly Clarkson and Tim McGraw. Now, the 26-year-old is having a big year…she’s just released her fourth album, Hero, and kicked off The RipCORD World Tour with country superstar Keith Urban. 

Maren’s other collaboration this summer: Target! She’s a big fan (check out what’s in her cart) and is giving guests three extra tracks on her Target-exclusive album. Her soul-meets-pop style is the perfect backdrop for a summer road trip—roll your windows down and turn the dial up.

And for even #MoreMusic for that perfect summer playlist, check out these albums—all featuring Target-exclusive tracks!
