After bringing the heartfelt “Remember You Young” to the top of the charts, Thomas Rhett is heading back to country radio with “Beer Can’t Fix,” a feel-good drinking song featuring fellow country star Jon Pardi.
Written by Rhett alongside Julian Bunetta, Zach Skelton and Ryan Tedder, “Beer Can’t Fix” became an instant fan favorite during his 2019 Very Hot Summer Tour.
The lighthearted tune is all about tackling life’s problems by cracking open a cold one.
“Ain’t nothing that a beer can’t fix/ Ain’t no pain it can’t wash away/ From the moment that it hits your lips/ Makes those clouds look a little less gray/ Oh, you could be lonely, or heartbroken/ Or hungover from the night before/ Turn that frown into a smile real quick/ There ain’t nothing that a beer can’t fix,” Rhett and Pardi croon throughout the chorus.
“Beer Can’t Fix” was written after a bad round of gold and Rhett says he knew exactly who he wanted to join him on the song the moment they wrote it.
“I was playing golf with one of my producers, Julian Bunetta, in Knoxville and we were both playing terribly, so we decided to drink a beer and suddenly we both started playing much better,” Rhett shared. “Julian looked at me and said ‘well, ain’t nothing a beer can’t fix’ and we both were like, ‘We have to write that.’ As soon as it was done I knew I wanted Jon on it. It’s basically about not taking life too seriously, and I just knew Jon’s voice would be the perfect addition to the song.”
Officially hitting radio on January 6, “Beer Can’t Fix” marks the third single from the superstar’s Grammy-nominated Center Point Road album.
Rhett is gearing up for a busy 2020, which includes the arrival of his third daughter and the launch of his Center Point Road Tour with special guests Cole Swindell and HARDY.
