Pierre Alexander and Chris Ruediger of The 615 House shared a reimagined version of Davis and Bryan’s multi-week No. 1 from the “perspective of a broke Nashville musician.”
“Pay rent, find a one bed on the edge of town / put a first-month deposit down / go broke first of every month / never get the chance to save up,” Alexander sings, while strumming an acoustic guitar.
As the clip continued, Ruediger appeared to sing the next verse of the song.
“Locked into a 16-month lease / still don’t know how to use the amenities / when mom calls and asks how I’ve been / can’t help it I start crying,” Ruediger sings before the pair joined together to sing the chorus.
“Cause the truth about it is / we ain’t ‘Luke Bryan Rich’ / can’t live with our parents / so we pay rent,” the two Nashville newcomers sing in harmony.

It wasn’t long after the video was posted, when a friend of Jordan Davis sent him the video on TikTok. Upon seeing the video, Davis knew he wanted to respond, so he shared a duet with the pair on TikTok, which he captioned, “been there fellas…Well done! 💪💪💪”
“Buddy of mine sent me this, this is hilarious, pay rent…” Davis said, before singing along to the parody.
“Y’all crushed this 👊,” Davis said in the comments of the clip, which has already amassed nearly 1 million views, praising the two singers.
