Beer Never Broke My Heart

  • Lyrics
  • Luke Combs knows that whatever else is going on in his life, he can always count on his favorite cold brew.

    Longneck iced cold beer never broke my heart
    Like diamond rings and football teams have torn this boy apart
    Like a neon dream it just don't know me, the bars and this guitar
    And longneck iced cold beer never broke my heart

    For Combs, beer is the only safe bet, as everything else in life is likely to end up hurting him.
  • Combs wrote this homage to beer with Jonathan Singleton (Billy Currington's "Don't," Josh Turner's "Why Don't We Just Dance") and Randy Montana, the son of Nashville songwriter Billy Montana.

    Combs had had the title on his phone for a long time. He penned the song with Singleton and Montana on the tour bus during his 2018 Don't Tempt Me with a Good Time Tour. The singer explained in press materials that he "really wanted to save it for some guys I thought would kind of understand and grasp what I was looking for out of the song."

    Combs added that he went to soundcheck and when he returned Singleton and Montana had been "hammering away" on his idea. They completed the song that day.
  • The song quickly became a fan favorite after Combs began performing it acoustically at concerts in January 2018. A studio version of the track was finally released to radio on May 8, 2019.
  • "Beer Never Broke My Heart" was Combs' first single to not be featured on his debut album, 2017's This One's for You.
