Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane just dropped the ultimate summertime anthem: “Tequila On A Boat.” 

The boozy tune finds the country hitmakers soaking up all that summer has to offer paired with a few libations and good friends. 

“Tequila on a boat, a boat on a lake/ A lake on fire and the tans ain’t fake/ A girl with a smile smiling at me/ Me with my eyes on her in the heat/ Yeah, God’s taking care of the weather (woo)/ Life don’t get much better/ Than ice in a cup, a cup on my lips/ Steal another kiss and take another sip/ Of tequila on a boat,” Lynch and Lane sing on the chorus. 

“‘Tequila On A Boat’ is a song that points to the absolute perfect day during the summertime,” shares Lynch. “I love being on the water. There’s just something that’s grounding to me, and I’ve made so many memories over the years with great friends, being on a boat, and just doing life together. Pumped one of those buddies, Chris Lane, could join me for this song and bring even more of a party to it.”
