Popular multi-platinum country music singer-songwriter Dierks Bentley was born in Phoenix and graduated from Vanderbilt University in Music City in 1997. Bentley signed with Capitol Nashville in 2003 and released his self-titled debut album that same year that was certified platinum. Bentley has had 20 number 1 singles on Country radio and now he’s worked with country favorites HARDY and Breland to release a new single “Beers on Me” that dropped today. Beers on Me is also the title of his upcoming tour that starts on August 13th in Salt Lake City with special guests Riley Green and Parker McCollum.
There’s some new competition for best country music summer song with this super fun, easy-going ode to friendship and cold beers. “Beers on Me” starts off as classic country easy-listening with catchy lyrics and a breezy tempered rhythm then evolves into a highly energetic mash-up of styles as HARDY and Breland’s voices are mixed in with Bentley’s. Bentley’s classic country voice contrasted by HARDY’s edgier, country twang is then complemented by the smooth tones of Breland’s fresh vocals. The combination is a musical delight and a unique treasure for a sing-along country summer song.
The lyrics are all about getting together with friends to enjoy a night off from worrying about your problems.
“Everybody’s got a problem, so do I. But we ain’t gonna solve ‘em on a Saturday night. I just put a paycheque in the bank and I’mma hit the town in a minute to drink. You had one of them, one of those weeks, stuck on repeat, I saved you a seat.”
There’s nothing quite like country friendships when it comes to being there for each other and having a good time. It’s a simple message but worth repeating after the year we’ve all had.
“Come on down, swing on by, drain whatever’s been on your mind. Locals on tap, bottles on ice, livin’ that feel-good standard time. My card’s on the bar, you’ve got nowhere to be, if you don’t come through buddy that’s on you ‘cause the beer’s on me. Yeah, the beer’s on me.”
This track becomes increasingly busy and elaborate mimicking a real night out on the town with friends. It is lyrically and rhythmically complex mixing different country styles seamlessly which is satisfying and impressive.
