Dierks Bentley enters the song of the summer chat with brand-new collaboration "Beers on Me." Breland and Hardy join in to remind us that "nothing tastes better than free" when a buddy's got the next round and you are both "livin' on feel good standard time."
"Hardy threw out this title and I remember immediately thinking, 'I wish I could buy all my fans a beer.' After the year we've all had, it would be nice to get the first round and say, 'Hey, we all got some problems but we're going to forget about them for a little while...the beers are on me,'" Bentley said in a press release. "I came back to Nashville to record the song and came across an article about Breland in the Nashville Scene. I got his number and he came in the next day and wrote and sang the third verse. It was truly an organic collaboration and I couldn't be more proud to have him and Hardy on this song with me."
The makeshift trio co-wrote the crucial addition to your seasonal playlist with Luke Dick, Ross Copperman and Ashley Gorley. The creative process started on a writers' retreat in Telluride, Colo. over quarantine and ended back home in Nashville.

It shares its name with Bentley's Beers on Me Tour, a run of amphitheater dates with special guests Riley Green and Parker McCollum plus a few appearances by Mitchell Tenpenny.
"I wrote a song a few months back with some friends called 'Beers On Me' that inspired this year's tour name," explains Bentley in a press release. "It's a pretty simple recipe for summer...get your friends together, have a round or two and dive into some great country music. That's exactly what Riley, Parker and I plan on doing out there on the road with our fans. Both these guys are road warriors and great performers that are going to help us get this summer fired up."
