Luke Combs recently dropped the music video for his latest single, “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” and it’s just as much of a crowd pleaser as the song itself.
The video’s opening scene shows Combs and his band onstage at a nearly empty dive bar. To set the tone for the night, the 29-year-old country singer takes a swig of his beer and assesses the five-plus crowd of patrons.
“Thanks to everybody for coming out tonight. It means a lot to us. So cheers to you guys tonight,” Combs tells his mini-audience before asking his band member, Jake, to “kick it off.”
As the guys rock out on their instruments, clips reveal different gentlemen recalling their own troubling real-life experiences. One man settles into a chair and loosens his tie after getting fired by his boss, while another hangs up fliers of his missing dog. Meanwhile, a third guy thinks back to the time he proposed to his girlfriend only to get shot down. Perhaps the most heartbreaking experience of all is when one man recalls missing the winning field goal during a high school football game.
Despite all of these painful scenarios, it seems all of the guys have one thing in common: beer never let them down. As Combs and his band continue to play on, the bar eventually fills up and the crowd gets wilder. Once the anthemic tune is over though, Combs realizes that the sea of people raising up their glasses is all part of his imagination.
Of course, these days Combs doesn’t have to worry about performing to an empty house. In fact, he’s already sold out multiple venues on his Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour, which runs through Dec. 13.
“Beer Never Broke My Heart” is the first release from Combs’ highly anticipated sophomore album. The song follows the success of Combs’ previous five singles, “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “She Got the Best of Me” and “Beautiful Crazy” – all of which topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
