Best Country Drinking Songs, No. 20: Brooks & Dunn’s ‘Beer Thirty’
Cheers-worthy lines: "The party starts here, get in line / Beer thirty a honky tonk time."
"Beer Thirty," written by Ronnie Dunn and Terry McBride, was recorded by duo Brooks & Dunn. It quickly became an anthem of living life to the fullest and starting the celebration early. "Life's too short, let's get to livin' it / Let's give it all we can give it / Let your hair down, turn the music up / We gonna paint the town flat, tear it up," the duo sings.
"Beer Thirty" was released in October 1999 as the second single from album Tight Rope. After playing this song, you'll never have to wait more than 30 minutes to crack open a cold one and start enjoying the relaxing side of life.
This song is one of the best country drinkings songs out there. First, it's sung by an award-winning duo who are the epitome of country music. Second, it encourages listeners to let loose and let the beer flow -- after putting in a solid four-day work week, of course. And third, "Beer Thirty" is just good country music.
