If you want a history lesson on how Cinco De Mayo came to be you can check out Jon Prell's blog here... Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Here is my list of the Top 10 Country Songs for your Cinco De Mayo Party!

#10: Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett – “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere”

Hey Romeo
Let’s go down to Mexico
Chase senoritas
Drink ourselves silly
Show them Mexican girls
A couple of real hillbillies

Now that's what i'm talking about!
#8: Jimmy Buffett – “Mexico”

It  shouldn't be a suprise that Jimmy Buffett has made my list twice so far. Buffett transforms where ever in the world he is, into his own personal beach front setting. This cover of James Taylor’s tune will hopefully do the same for you. So sit back, relax, close your eyes, and picture the white sands.

On the classic end, Marty Robbins has a few Mexican songs. This song only mentions drinking once, but we know there was more drinking taking place, especially in the songwriting. 

A drink he was sharing
With wicked Felina,
The girl that I loved.

#6: George Strait – “Seashores of Old Mexico”

I think we can all agree with Tim in this song, more so in the winter. Here are some lyrics to ponder as you sit at your desk at work and dream about the beaches and the outside:

And that’s why God made Mexico
A place where we can lay low
And the Cuervo goes down nice and slow
And the warm wind blows
That’s why God made Mexico

#4: Joe Nichols – Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off”

I had a friend tell me one night that sometimes a night on the town is like a 10 round heavyweight fight against the bottle. You win some, and you lose many. How about your next bout against Jose, Cuervo that is.

#2: Kenny Chesney – “Beer In Mexico”

You may or may not be able to relate to the words of this song by Toby Keith, but I am sure it would not be hard for you to imagine. This is the ultimate party song that can also be taken as fact if you have one too many south of the border. Which, apparently is the popular place for country artists/writers to drink.
