  • Here’s hoping you received a hefty iTunes gift card for Christmas. You’re going to need it if you want to download all the songs on our Outdoors Playlist.
    More than 25 readers contributed song suggestions on PrairieStateOutdoors.com to our playlist of songs about the great outdoors. They added their favorites to a list started to get the ball rolling. Most of them are included here.
    Many contributed more than one song, and at least one mentioned “Bone Collector: The Brotherhood Album,” a collection of hunting and fishing songs featuring artists such as Rhett Atkins and Dallas Davidson.
    Some are funny, like Davidson’s “Weapons of Bass Destruction.”
    Others are touching, like Trace Adkins’ story about taking a child fishing.
    I guarantee this memory’s a biggin’
    And she thinks we’re just fishin;
    And it’s never too late to make some new memories outdoors.
