Thomas Rhett and Jon Pardi’s carefree summertime anthem, “Beer Can’t Fix” is sitting atop both the Mediabase/Country Airplay and Billboard Country charts this week.
The song is Rhett’s 15th No.1 single and nine consecutive chart-topper. The superstar says he’s “blown away” by the news.
“It’s a crazy time right now for everyone and it’s really fitting for me that a song I started writing with my buddies during a bad game of golf, and that features another good buddy, Jon Pardi, has maybe helped to bring a smile to people’s faces right now,” Rhett shares. “I am beyond grateful to the fans and country radio and can’t wait to celebrate with everybody soon.”
Rhett co-wrote “Beer Can’t Fix” alongside Julian Bunetta, Zach Skelton and Ryan Tedder.
In March, Rhett and Pardi brought the song to life with a music video for the collaboration, showcasing the pair hanging on the beach, fishing and taking in the sights and sounds of Key West, Florida.
“Beer Can’t Fix” is the third single from the superstar’s Grammy-nominated Center Point Road album.
