My Fall Soundtrack


This year I have been making playlists to match the season we are in. I shared my spring playlist that was full of energetic, bright verses, and sounds from decades past. This fall, I’m doing just the same. These are just a few of my absolute favorites from my own fall soundtrack I dubbed; “Falling for Fall”. Creative, I know. I picked these tracks because they are very instrumental, which makes me think of snuggling up by a campfire with hot cider in hand. Not to mention the vocals are so soulful. You’ll also see lots of acoustics in this playlist. I feel like all of these things add up to create a very slowed-down ambiance which is essentially what fall is doing as it lulls the busy summer to sleep for the year. And who doesn’t love the raspy-ness of Chris Stapleton’s voice, I mean come on… This is my list for the fall, picked primarily for the reasons listed above, and some just because they’re my favorites right now! (i.e., belting out the chorus to Midnight Train to Georgia). Plug your headphones in, sit back, and enjoy.
