Thomas Rhett and Jon Pardi danced their way through their performance of “Beer Can’t Fix” at 55th ACM Awards from the Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday (Sept. 16).
“Me and Jon Pardi are singing our song ‘Beer Can’t Fix’ we put out, we recorded this song I guess last year and finally got to put it out as a single last year, it became a No. 1 song this year and it’s gonna be fun.” Rhett explained ahead of their performance. “Me and Jon played this once at CMA Fest was it last year, but this is the first time we’ll be having done it at an awards show. We do a little dancing, we do a little spinning, this is all Jon’s choreography.”
