And with a 20-week reign on the Top Country Songs, “Fancy Like” also tuned its way to Applebee’s commercials.
2. Beer Beer Truck Truck by George Birge
“Beer Beer Truck Truck” unlike other country songs that went viral on TikTok actually started as a stitch to another video made by TikToker Erynn Chambers. In the video, Chambers satirized country music, saying that lyrics were nothing but “beer, beer, truck, truck, girls and tight jeans.” Birge agreed that Chambers made a good point, but at the same time, he wanted to show that a real country songwriter like him can make cool music even with the most ridiculous lyrics. And he did, and it was a hit.
