Luke Bryan "But I Got A Beer In My Hand" Song Review

Any time a country music legend like Luke Bryan releases new music, it will surely be something special. Bryan released his new single, “But I Got A Beer In My Hand” on May 5th, 2023, and it is no exception to this pattern. Bryan has become one of country music's biggest stars, with hits like "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)," "Drink A Beer," and "Play It Again" cementing his status as a fan favorite.

“But I Got A Beer In My Hand” is a classic Luke Bryan ode to booze. Bryan details the moments in life that are meant to drag you down, and how they can be turned around simply by holding a cold one. He exclaims, “Yeah, I know how that country song goes / I’m supposed to be heartbroke / But I got a beer in my hand / And I got it raised up high / I ain’t got a give in my damn right / I can do this all night.” At this point, Bryan may be the world’s leading expert on beer, because clearly, no one knows the subject better than him.
