Part of his upcoming fourth album, Center Point Road, the breezy tune features a two-stepping groove, a smooth pour of TR’s effortless cool and a chaser of Pardi’s traditional twang. It was written by Rhett with Julian Bunetta, Zach Skelton and Ryan Tedder, all about feel good cure-all that always seems to do the trick. It doesn’t matter if your lonely, heartbroken or hung over, the Platinum-certified pair sing, a frosty cold one will do you right.
“Ain’t nothin’ 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 grey / Oh, you could be lonely, heartbroken / Or hungover from the night before / Turn that frown into a smile real quick / There ain’t nothin’ that a beer can’t fix,” goes the tag-team chorus.
“I was playing golf with one of my producers, Julian Bunetta, in Knoxville and we were both playing terribly, so we decided to drink a beer and suddenly we both started playing much better,” TR shares. “Julian looked at me and said ‘Well, ain’t nothing a beer can’t fix,’ and we both were like, ‘We have to write that.’ As soon as it was done I knew I wanted Jon on it. It’s basically about not taking life too seriously, and I just knew Jon’s voice would be the perfect addition to the song.”
Center Point Road arrives on May 31st and is named after the street where Rhett grew up outside of Nashville. He’s already taken the smooth strutting “Look What God Gave Her” into the Top 10 at country radio, and also released a second collaboration — the party starting “Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time” featuring Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild.
Rhett kicks off his headlining Very Hot Summer Tour tonight (May 17th) with Dustin Lynch in Spokane, Washington, and will continue on with more than 40 dates on tap this summer.
