When Luke Combs’ “Beer Never Broke My Heart” was played acoustically during one of his concerts way back in 2018, the audience responded as if the brand-new song was an old favorite.
A year later, the North Carolina singer-songwriter then released the upbeat ballad as the first single off his second studio album, What You See Is What You Get. And as expected, it was over-and-above the list of Luke Combs greatest hits.
In fact, it was streamed more than eleven million times in its first week on the market – the highest in history for a country singer. It charted No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart while peaking at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
Luke Combs co-wrote the country-rock jam with fellow Nashville singer-songwriters Randy Montana and Jonathan Singleton. In the song, Combs names everything else in life that can break someone’s heart – from a breakup with gorgeous girls to a truck breaking down and even pets running away. But in all these worst cases, one thing has been a constant grievance handler, and that’s “longneck, ice-cold beer.”
And just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any better – Combs dropped a music video that’s got us all obsessed. The short clip shows Combs taking center stage with his bandmates for one epic show. Gently, they begin to catch the interest of bar goers as they tell the tale of broken-hearted souls.
You can check out the music video of “Beer Never Broke My Heart” by Luke Combs below. But consider yourself warned – you’ll surely have this on repeat for the days ahead of you. The entire thing – from the guitar riff on its beginning to its feisty lyrics – shows just why Combs is the best new thing that has ever happened in country music.
