  • Lyrics
  • This light-hearted summery stroll finds Thomas Rhett singing of cracking open a cold beer at the end of a crummy day.

    You can be lonely, heartbroken
    Or hungover from the night before
    Turn that frown into a smile real quick
    Ain't nothing that a beer can't fix
    Rhett's not afraid to drink away his worries
  • Rhett co-wrote the song Ryan Tedder, the OneRepublic frontman's frequent collaborator Zach Skelton, and producer Julian Bunetta.
  • The track was inspired by a lousy round of golf with Bunetta. Once they decided to open a cold one, their golf game got better.

    "We were going, 'Well maybe it was the beer,' and so we started talking about titles we could write around that and 'Ain't Nothing A Beer Can't Fix' is what we landed on," Rhett recalled to Billboard.
  • Jon Pardi joins in for a second verse and chorus. Rhett said: "I literally called Jon before we even finished the song. I played him the chorus on my phone and I said, 'I need you to sing on this with me, I think it's going to be a big song,' and he put his vocal on it the next week."
  • Jon Pardi told The Boot the uptempo, fun-loving track was a perfect choice for the two singers.

    "He sent me two [songs], and we decided to sing 'Beer Can't Fix' because it's an anthem. It's a no-brainer," he explained. "For two male artists to sing together, I think it's perfect. It's about, you know, 'Time to drink a beer!' It's fun."
