Thomas Rhett scored his 15th No. 1 single as “Beer Can’t Fix” topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week. The tune features vocals from Jon Pardi, who tallied his fifth No. 1 single with the achievement.
“Today we celebrated my 15th number one,” said Thomas Rhett via Twitter. “Thank you to my amazing team, country radio and the folks who listen to our music. It truly takes an army. Huge shout out to @jonpardi for your amazing talent and for having a blast with me creating this song! Here’s to beer can’t fix.”
Penned by TR, Julian Bunetta, Zach Skelton and Ryan Tedder, “Beer Can’t Fix” was inspired by a golf outing.
“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,” Thomas Rhett says. “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.”
“Beer Can’t Fix” is featured on Thomas Rhett’s 2019 album, Center Point Road. The 16-song album takes its name from the street in his Tennessee hometown that shaped much of TR’s life experiences.
