Bryan starts the song off by singing about the aftermath of a breakup, and how he “knows how that country song goes,” adding that he’s “supposed to be heartbroke.” However, the rest of the song flips the script on this trope.

“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,” Bryan sings on the song’s chorus, later adding, “Feelin’ this high wasn’t part of my plan / Wasn’t even gonna try / But I got a beer in my hand.”

According to Taste of Country, Bryan said of the track, “It’s about a guy that obviously, his girl leaves him and he’s expecting to really be down about it. Instead, he goes out, gets a beer in his hand, starts partying and life’s pretty good.”

The upbeat song is sure to be playing at plenty of barbecues and pool parties this summer.



Bryan Is Going on Tour Next Month

Bryan is gearing up for his Country On Tour to kick off next month. The first show will take place on June 15 in Syracuse, New York. The singer has more dates lined up in cities around the U.S. and Canada through October.

The talent show judge will be joined on the tour by several special guests, including American Idol Season 19 winner Chayce Beckham, who recently released a new single of his own called “Till the Day I Die.” Beckham performed the song on a recent episode of the show.
