Dierks Bentley, HARDY and BRELAND threw a party in Downtown Nashville.
The pre-taped performance found the artists performing live at Bentley’s Whiskey Row nightclub on Broadway, the star-studded trio of country singers performed their collaborative hit “Beers On Me” during CMA Summer Jam.
“Come on down / Swing on by / Bring whatever’s been on your mind / Locals on tap / And bottles on ice / Livin’ on feel good standard time / My card’s on the bar / You got nowhere to be / If you don’t come through / Buddy, that’s on you / ‘Cause the beer’s on me / Yeah, the beer’s on me,” the trio sing in the chorus.
The song was co-written by Ashley Gorley, Luke Dick, Ross Copperman, Breland, Hardy and Bentley, who also produced the track with Copperman.
“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 previously explained of the track. “I came back to Nashville to record the song and came across and 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.”
In addition to performing “Beers On Me,” during the show Bentley also performed his latest chart-topping single, “Gone,” during the show.
