Luke Bryan is increasing the heat of his new summertime anthem, “But I Got A Beer In My Hand” with the release of his brand new music video. 

Directed by Jim Wright, the one take video was shot in Springfield, Tennessee on Free Dreaming Farm. The opening clip reveals Bryan getting a flat tire and having to catch a ride with a local driving by. As he hopes out of the bed, the country star suddenly finds himself in the setting of a lively bar. 

While singing the upbeat party track, he weaves his way around the small-town party that features dancing, intense card games, and plenty of drinks. In the final clip, Bryan rejoins the band and pops the top on a can of his own brand of Two Lane beer.

Co-written by Chase McGill, Matt Dragstrem, and Geoff Warburton and produced by Jeff Stevens produced and Jody Stevens, “But I Got A Beer In My Hand” serves as one of the fastest rising singles of Bryan’s career. Following its add to country radio on May 15, the song launched into the Top 15 within just 11 weeks.

Throughout the tune, the five-time Entertainer of the Year proves that nothing is getting in his way from having a good time with a cold one in his hand. 

As the epic guitar riffs intensify and the drum beats grow louder with each second, this song makes it nearly impossible to refuse a night out. The earworm signals the need for some upbeat, carefree fun paired with Bryan’s Georgia-raised vocals.

“But I got a beer in my hand, and I got it raised up high / I ain’t got a give in my damn right, I can do this all night / Country done came to town, this town don’t stand a chance / I’ll holler at the ladies, dancing like crazy, new Luccheses, fresh up out the deer stand / Feeling this high, wasn’t part of my plan / Wasn’t even gonna try / But I got a beer in my hand,” Bryan sings on the chorus.

This song marks Bryan’s first release of 2023, following his sentimental tune, “Prayin’ In A Deer Stand,” which dropped in November. It also comes hot on the heels of Bryan’s 30th No. 1 single, “Country On,” which closed out the 2022 charts as the final No. 1 of the year. 

Bryan got to debut the song for television audiences on the season finale of American Idol in May. It was recently announced that the “One Margarita” singer will return to the show in 2024 alongside his fellow judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
