Beer

Album: Hard 2 Love (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This quirky party song was penned by Chris Tompkins, Mark Irwin and Joe Collins. "I just put the vocals on it; it's gonna be awesome," Brice told The Boot with a big smile. "It's called 'Beer.' [laughs] It's a guy song. I've got so much love stuff out, and that's a part of me. But I'm also a fun, rowdy fella. 'Beer' is different - it's country, it's rock 'n roll and it's everything that I am!"
  • Brice explained why he wanted to cut this for his sophomore album: "It starts out as a good feeling country song, all laid back and easy going like Billy Currington, and then it goes into heavy rock. My band is really a rock 'n' roll band at heart, and they play my music with a passion. 'Beer' just has that going on, and I thought, "What redneck country listener isn't going to want to scream a song titled 'Beer?'" The simple images in the song are all true, and I wanted people to see that that part of me is still there."
