On paper, Thomas Rhett and Jon Pardi seem to be an odd duo. Thomas Rhett is skinny jeans, Converse, and “new” country music, while Jon Pardi is a cowboy hat, Wranglers, and more traditional “old” country. Yet, on “Beer Can’t Fix,” released today (May 17), they make a perfect pair.
The track is an uptempo ode to beer, which just may be the universal love language of country music. According to the song, written by Rhett, Julian Bunetta, Zach Skelton, and Ryan Tedder, there’s absolutely nothing that “a beer can’t fix.” The song is perfect for Rhett’s live show, and it’s easy to imagine throngs of fans with their beers lifted in the air, passionately singing along. Plus, the “Ain’t nothin’ that a beer can’t fix” T-shirts practically design themselves here.
Pardi and Rhett trade verses on “Beer Can’t Fix,” declaring a cold one the simplest solution to all of life’s problems. Whether you’re stressed from work, rain on a vacation, or a lost love, beer is always there to save the day. On the chorus, they celebrate beer, singing, “Ain’t nothing that a beer can’t fix/ Ain’t no pain it can’t wash away / From the moment that it hits your lips / Makes those clouds look a little less gray / Oh, you could be lonely / Or heartbroken / Or hungover from the night before / Turn that frown into a smile real quick /There ain’t nothing that a beer can’t fix.”
“Beer Can’t Fix,” was released today in advance of Rhett’s Center Point Road, due out May 31. It marks the fifth track to be released from the album, following “Remember You Young,” “That Old Truck,” “Look What God Gave Her,” and “Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time,” featuring Little Big Town.
Rhett will hit New York City’s Madison Square Garden as a part of his Very Hot Summer Tour 2019 on Friday, September 20, with supporting acts Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson, and Rhett Akins. Tickets are available here.
