Finally! Summer is on its way, and that means Ronnie Dunn will lead the way for the new country music releases in June 2011 with his debut self-titled solo album, 'Ronnie Dunn,' on June 7.

That same day, Randy Travis drops his 'Anniversary Collection' record, and before we know it, we'll have the second collaboration album dedicated to Waylon Jennings on June 14.

Come June 21, our favorite outlaw Justin Moore will march in with his adequately titled record, 'Outlaws Like Me,' alongside the latest from Jim Lauderdale, 'Reason and Rhyme.' Then, a week later on June 28, Billy Ray Cyrus will offer his hand for a shake with his patriotic declaration album, 'I'm American.'

June 2011 will be a big month for country music releases, and thank goodness, because some sweet tunes will really do the trick to take our minds off of the heat. Stay tuned, because Taste of Country will be bringing you the cool-down of fresh new albums month by month, through the end of the year!
