Best Country Drinking Songs
Country music boasts an endless amount of both feel-good and sappy drinking songs. Here are a few favorites from us at Great American Country.
“Red Solo Cup” – Toby Keith
Toby Keith’s tribute to the red Solo® cup was an almost instant viral video sensation. When the tune comes on at parties, everyone raises their glasses.
“Friends In Low Places” – Garth Brooks
Few songs bring a group of revelers together for a sing-a-long like Garth Brooks’ “Friends In Low Places.” It’s also a popular cover song for arena headlining acts and bar cover bands.
“Parking Lot Party” – Lee Brice
Tailgating is a sport in and of itself, and Lee Brice’s “Parking Lot Party” is its anthem. The next time you and your friends are partying in the parking lot before the show or the big game, make sure this tune is on the playlist.
“Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer” – Billy Currington
Billy Currington may claim he’s no good at mowing, painting or manual labor, in general, but according to his 2010 hit song, he’s “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer.” We think Currington has a few other talents as well – like singing.
“Rain Is A Good Thing” – Luke Bryan
Rainy days can put a damper on things – pun intended – but Luke Bryan’s “Rain Is A Good Thing” reminds us of something very important: “rain makes corn, and corn makes whiskey.”
“Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” – Joe Nichols
Everyone has [at least] one drink that lowers inhibitions, and for Joe Nichols’ love interest in “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” that drink is tequila. When the inhibitions hit the floor, so do her clothes.
“Alcohol” – Brad Paisley
After a few drinks, people become excellent dancers and singers, and might even wear a lampshade as a hat. Brad Paisley’s “Alcohol,” a crowd favorite, details the sometimes humorous effects of a night of drinking.
“Beer Money” – Kip Moore
After a long week of work, Kip Moore plans to spend the little bit of money from his paycheck on a six pack of beer, and a date with his girl on the back of a tailgate.
“The More I Drink” – Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton’s once life-of-the-party friend gives drinking a pass in “The More I Drink,” detailing why he gave up the hard stuff as it makes him “the world’s greatest lover and a dancin’ machine.”
“Day Drinking” – Little Big Town
We have all fantasized about leaving the office in the middle of the day to pour a glass of wine or pop the top on a beer. The next time you get the urge to flee the workplace, turn on Little Big Town’s “Day Drinking.”
"Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound" – Hank Williams, Jr.
Bocephus is no stranger to singing about Jim Beam, but this anthem is a fan favorite. “Sure enough about closing time, I’m stoned out of my mind,” he sings. But when he wakes up the next morning, after taking home a stranger, he thinks about his “sweet girl at home,” and then he “needs to get whiskey bent and hell bound” all over again.
"Beer Run" - Todd Snider
One of Todd Snider's most popular songs is an ode to two underage frat boys attempting to buy beer. It was later covered and made famous by two country legends spanning two generations, Garth Brooks and George Jones. Snider's spell-it-out chorus has become a universal party cry for more beer!
