Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” is in the lead so far, but Luke Bryan’s “Drunk on You” is gaining on it. Maybe if we mashed those songs up — “Makin’ waves and catchin’ rays up on the roof/Pour a little Crown in a Dixie cup and party in slow motion/The best buzz I’m ever gonna find on a pontoon” — we would have ourselves a clear winner. But there’s still time to get your vote in on this CMT Insider poll of your favorite song of this summer. And it’s a tough call. Eric Church’s “Springsteen,” Kip Moore’s “Somethin’ ’Bout a Truck,” Dierks Bentley’s “5-1-5-0” and the Zac Brown Band’s “The Wind” were all vying for my attention when I voted. And you may also be inclined to cast your vote for Miranda Lambert’s “Fastest Girl in Town,” Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over,” Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah” or Jason Aldean’s “Take a Little Ride.” After you vote on Facebook, tune in to CMT Insider to see if your summer song won.
