Bear Bailey teased fans with another new song!
The TikTok star returned to the Super Serve Gas Station near Houma, Louisiana, where he first went viral for singing country covers, to sing an original song called “I Can’t Stop Loving You.”
After entering the convenience store to grab a drink, the Super Serve cashier began playing Bailey’s original song over the loudspeakers, which prompted Bailey to conduct an on-the-spot performance of the unreleased tune.
“I see you, you’re playing my stuff, huh,” Bailey said as he approached the counter to purchase a Strawberry Banana BodyArmor Sports Drink, wearing a black WrestleMania shirt. The cashier exclaiming, “yeah, Bear on the radio.”
The singer and internet sensation then began belting out the lyrics as the gas station employees raved over his talent, stunning store patrons, who happen to be lucky enough to get a glimpse of the soon-to-be superstar.
“It’s kind of like looking up at the sky / trying to count the stars / or trying to put into words everything I’m feeling in my heart / will that be impossible… / welcome to my whole world / ’cause I can’t, I can’t, I can’t stop loving you / you’re all I want and all I want to do / every second we ain’t touchin’ / every night that we ain’t lovin’ / girl I wanted to / I can’t, I can’t, I can’t stop loving you,” the viral Louisiana native sings in the clip.
“If y’all like it, blow it up!” Bailey said as the clip concluded.

“I Can’t Stop Loving You” marks the second original song teased by Bailey, following an untitled track that he has not yet named, however, when he asked his followers what he should name the song, hundreds dubbed it “Let It Roll” in the comments. Both tracks teased have seemingly been inspired by his wife, Marianne.
The song was teased by the 33-year-old welder in a clip on TikTok, which has since amassed 932k views.
Bailey is seen in his kitchen, wearing a Prince Purple Rain shirt, singing along to the recorded version of the self-penned unreleased song.
“Girl had one hell of a week / been working on your feet / broken down tired, but you’re never too tired for me / Babe, I’m cool with staying in / a little lime a little gin / kissing on the couch / I’m happy without that [inaudible] / But I can see the way you’re dancing in the kitchen / know that we ain’t staying in tonight / I can tell that ain’t going to fix it / you got a buzzing for the neon lights,” Bailey sings in the just-released video.
“Girl go get your Friday on / ’cause we don’t need another night at home / a little rooftop bar with a downtown view of you / tell the band to play your favorite song / and you can order all the drinks / ’cause you worked all week until the full time took its toll / but tonight we’re gonna let it roll / tonight we’re gonna let it roll,” Bailey sings during the original song’s chorus.
“Alright, y’all blow this up, and I promise you I’ll drop it,” Bailey said, as the clip ended.

Additionally, James “Bear” Bailey, known by his TikTok handle, @bearbaily1, has been impressing people at a Super Serve gas station near Houma, Louisiana, with impromptu performances of songs by artists from all different genres. Bailey’s performances, which have since been uploaded to his TikTok page, have made him a viral star. In fact, he has amassed over 2 million followers already!
With each impressive clip, viewers can find Bailey – a 33-year-old welder – typically standing near the checkout counter in a rock-band T-shirt, either singing along with the gas station loudspeaker or belting out an a cappella tune. His near-flawless renditions on songs by artists such as Luke Combs, Lonestar, O Town and Shania Twain, to name a few, have left store patrons stunned. So much so that they often stop in their tracks, dance along to his performances, or – as seen in other clips – return to the gas station to find Bailey offering onlookers yet another on-the-spot rendition of their favorite tune.
Thanks to the popular TikTok platform, Bailey has been grasping attention from some of country music’s biggest stars. Mickey Guyton, who saw Bailey’s gas-station performance of K-CI & Jojo’s “All My Life,” re-tweeted the clip, showing her enthusiasm for Bailey’s talent with the simple caption, “I Can’t.” While country superstar Keith Urban has also taken an interest in Bailey’s work in the recent months, responding via Twitter to one of his video cover performances of Urban’s 2009 smash, “‘Til Summer Comes Around,” with three love hand gesture emojis. Even Dan + Shay got in on the excitement, commenting on a video from their own TikTok account, raving, “killed it, Man!”
More recently, Bailey caught the attention of Clay Walker, who invited him to come perform on stage with him some day.
In addition to Walker, country superstar Keith Urban also took a liking to the viral singer, as he has now incorporated his video covering “‘Til The Summer Comes Around” into his live concerts during Urban’s current Las Vegas Residency. Urban even said the quick rising star is “such a badass” in one of his recent TikTok posts.
